A Boston mother whose son was murdered by an illegal alien was booed and disrespected by a pack of braying liberals at the Massachusetts state house on Friday.
Maureen Maloney, who lost her son to an illegal alien driver in 2011, appeared before a Massachusetts house committee to argue against giving illegals driver’s licenses.
“I was just asking him to guide me with my testimony and help me to not have anger in my heart towards the other side,” Maloney said, according to the Boston Herald. “Just do some work through me, use me to try to save other lives.”
Maloney brought a framed photo of her son dressed in his high school graduation robes.
But as Maloney was relating her story, the liberals in the audience began booing her and trying to drown her out.

“It just made me more determined,” Maloney said of the disrespectful disruption.
The grieving mother ignored the verbal attackers and kept on speaking. “I don’t want other people to lose their lives like Matthew did. I don’t want other families to go through the heartache that my family deals with. And that’s where I get the strength and the stamina to keep doing this.”
According to the Herald:
Nicolas Dutan Guaman struck Denice, who was on a motorcycle, with his pickup truck on Aug. 20, 2011. Denice, 23, became trapped underneath the truck and was dragged for a quarter mile in Milford as witnesses screamed for Guaman to stop.
Guaman was sentenced to 12 to 14 years after a judge found him guilty of manslaughter by motor vehicle and motor vehicle homicide while driving drunk.
Maloney added that those testifying in favor of the bill were almost all illegals.
“Going to hearings like this, talking about it, opens up the wounds and it’s painful,” Maloney said. “And hearing them talk about their fear of separation and I’m sitting there thinking, ‘I have been permanently separated. This is the ultimate permanent separation.’ They’re afraid they’ll be deported but they can take their kids with them or their kids can go visit them. I don’t have that option.”
Imagine the gall! You are already a law-breaking criminal, yet you have the gall to go to the state capital and testify openly about your criminality! And then you demand concessions for the law abiding!
This is the upside-down world that the Democrat Party has created.
