Ola Cuates--I figured it out for mi-self. The Guaraguao is a red-tailed hawk. So the de la Maza, Truijillo's assassin, was saying something like: "This chicken-hawk ain't gonna be eatin' any more little chicks!" One for the history books.

Thanks, Evelio, but I wonder if "Guaraguao" has any other connotations now (or before).

Well, Guaraguao is a barrio in Puerto Rico, so maybe it was a low blow calling him a Puerto-Rican whatever, though he wasn't from there. This would add to the level of insult.
