Re: Update: The Death of Edimar de Araujo
And the winner of this year’s Alinsky award for staying on-message, no matter what facts, common sense and common decency all indicate, is Ali Noorani, the executive director of the Massachusetts Immigrant & Refugee Advocacy Coalition. Mr. Noorani receives this award for his quote appearing in Amanda Milkovits’ and Karen Lee Ziner’s story in today’s Projo, following yesterday’s revelation that the death of Edimar de Araujo was caused by a combination of cocaine and anti-anxiety medication…
“At the end of the day, a person died because they were an undocumented immigrant,” he said yesterday.How exactly does Mr. Noorani believe that the combination of chemicals in Mr. Araujo’s system at the time of his death related to his immigration status?
“How much money, time and emotional drama would have been saved if we had a functioning immigration system?” he said.
