Near the end of his immigration speech on Wednesday, Donald Trump invited a group of people onto the stage with him. They were the family members of 10 people killed by immigrants who were in the country illegally.

The group, mostly women, assembled behind the candidate and Trump invited them to speak. Two of them, Maureen and Mike Maloney, are from Milford.

We spoke with Maureen and Mike Maloney at their home. We talked about why they support Trump and why they want to bring back the Secure Communities program — where anyone arrested by local police would have their immigration status checked.

The Maloneys have created a scholarship to help Milford High School students attend Framingham State University. Donations for the Matthew Denice Memorial Scholarship should be sent to Framingham State University, 100 State St., PO Box 9101, Framingham, MA 01701.

Guests

Maureen and Mike Maloney, their son Matthew Denice was killed by a drunk, unlicensed driver in 2011, who was in the country illegally.

This segment aired on September 2, 2016.
