Gracias, Amigo! (And Allahu Akbar!)

That's what immigration criminals cruising through red lights must be saying to Gov. Deval Patrick today as he shoots down a program that would have allowed some state troopers to detain illegals they came across during the normal course of their duties.

So the next time you're in an accident with an (ahem) "unauthorized entrant," ask yourself this: How many times has this same guy been pulled by the cops before? How many times has the guy who crushed your car been in the custody of the cops, only to be returned to his life of crime on your streets?

There are at least three other people applauding Gov. Patrick's "let 'em ride" welcome of immigration criminals: Hani Hanjour, Ziad Jarrah and Mohammed Atta. All three were stopped by cops for traffic violations. All three were here ilelgally at the time. All three were allowed to go on their way. All three died on 9/11/01...just weeks after their encounters with state police.

Take Atta as one example. According to CNN: "Hijacker Mohamed Atta was stopped by police last July ('01) in Tamarac, Fla., and ticketed for an invalid license, officials there have said. He ignored the ticket and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. But, when he was stopped for speeding a few weeks later in a nearby town, the officer, unaware of the bench warrant, let him go with a warning."

Thanks to Gov. Patrick, a Statie here in Massachusetts could be doing the same thing to the next Mohammad Atta right now.
