JUSTICE SERVED? Federal Jury Finds AZ Rancher Roger Barnett Did not Violate Illegal Immigrants’ Rights … However, Did Find Liable on Claims of Assault $77,804 in Damages
Talk about a crime …
Only in America can an “ILLEGAL” sue for having their rights violated. Talk about your oxymorons. It was determined that their rights were not violated; however, that did not stop a jury from awarding them money. That is correct, an “illegal” was awarded money for entering the United States illegally? What every happened to property owners rights?
Illegal Immigration Crossing … Your Private Property
A federal jury found Arizona rancher Roger Barnett did not violate the civil rights of a group of illegal immigrants who said he detained them at gunpoint in 2004 on his own property. The jury also found that Barnett was not liable on claims of battery and false imprisonment. However, jury did find Roger Barnett liable on four claims of assault and four claims of infliction of emotional distress.
A federal jury found Tuesday that a southern Arizona rancher didn’t violate the civil rights of a group of illegal immigrants who said he detained them at gunpoint in 2004.
The eight-member civil jury also found Roger Barnett wasn’t liable on claims of battery and false imprisonment.
But the jury did find him liable on four claims of assault and four claims of infliction of emotional distress and ordered Barnett to pay $77,804 in damages — $60,000 of which were punitive.
…All six plaintiffs are citizens of Mexico, five of whom are living in the United States with visa applications pending, and the sixth resides in Mexico but was allowed into the U.S. for the trial, said Nina Perales, an attorney with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

It appears that Obama’s stimulus package and soon to be home mortgage bail out bill is not the only place where bad behavior is rewarded. As reported at Town Hall.com, now stopping illegals who are tresspassing and detaining them until the US Border Patrol arrives on your property is now considered against the law. Tresspassing illegals who let’s repeat this again were in the United States illegally were awarded $77,804 in damages, $60,000 of which were punitive. HUH?
How is anyone in the United States illegally allowed to sue for anything?
So not only were the plaintiffs in this case in the US illegally, they were also tresspassing on private property. Maybe some one in politics could actually grow a set and pass some illegal immigration laws and enforce them to protect American citizens so that they do not have to patrol their property and detain illegals.
Why is deporting illegal aliens such a foreign concept to our government? Why are politicians such cowards to address the issue in fear of being called a racist? One would say that rancher Roger Barnett should sue the federal government for having his civil rights violated in that they have failed to protect him as a citizen from enemies domestic and abroad.
