    An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals — seeking $32 million in damages — who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border, the Washington Times reported Monday.

    The rancher, Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home, the newspaper reported.

    The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.

    "His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as "the avenue of choice" for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally, the newspaper reports."

    This part was especially neat .......

    No, that would be too long. Give him 10 to 12.

    This story is retarded as hell. At the very least he was legally capable of thwarting the trespassing going on. At the worst he was doing what the federal gov WONT do to cork a hemorrhaging of illegals.

    The rancher should be on the payroll of the the border patrol. At least then it would make the border patrol look good with the stats.

    Amazing, and this is such bullshit. He should have all charges dropped ASAP, and those illegals should be deported.
    They aren't citizens of this country.

    If the judge and state had any common sense; they'd laugh at the lawsuit, send them back over the border and drop the charges.

    I wonder on what basis they are able to file this lawsuit. This tactic reminds me of white supremacists and constitutionalists who legally harass law enforcement officers through filing multiple civil suits.

    What I'm wondering is why the fuck they haven't been deported despite the fact they ADMIT they crossed the border illegally.
