That’s supposedly a direct quote from the defendant of a lawsuit filed in Arizona. I’m not sure if that’s a direct translation (the quote was originally spoken in Spanish) or the newspaper-friendly version, but either way it’s probably one of the more awesome things you’ll ever hear in a courtroom.
The quote is taken from an article that appeared in the Washington Times today about a group of illegals who are suing an Arizona man who held them at gunpoint when he caught them trying to cross his property into the United States.
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 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.
Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home.
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.
That’s just the beginning few paragraphs of the article giving the basic premise of the situation. What’s incredible is that these illegal immigrants apparently CAN sue Mr. Barnett since his lawyer’s initial request for a dismissal was denied. Does anyone else find that shockingly disturbing? A group of non-citizens apparently have the right to sue a legal citizen.
