Today in news, a rancher in Arizona is being sued for actually enforcing the law by illegals who, what else, are trying to across the border illegally. The Mexican nationals are suing Roger Barnett for 32 million dollars, because they were held captive at gunpoint by Barnett with his big dog. Barnett began to round up illegals trespassing on his property since 1998, shortly after they killed his calves, destroyed his property, and broke into his home.
This kind of story breaks my heart, because here is somebody who tried to obey law and actually did his part in enforcing law on his property. The illegals should be thankful that this rancher did not shoot them on sight, he's well within his right do that. Though, I can only imagine the kind of outrage liberals and media would have if he did that, he would be immediately arrested on the charge of first degree murder and lose his property.
But what is truly outrageous is that there are some people who actually believe that suing somebody in court means it's okay to break more laws. I wouldn't be surprised if the illegals in this case probably thought, "I'm doing the jobs no American wants to do, you should be thankful for me. Just because I'm entering illegally doesn't mean I'll break every law in book. Wake up and smell coffee!" No kidding, Sherlock! The point isn't whether you'll be following law once you cross the border, but that you broke law by illegally entering the United States. I don't care if you are indeed a hardworking person, you broke law and you should pay the price, not Barnett or any other rancher for that matter, period.
Liberals have this weird mentality that some laws are meant to be broken, and we should overlook some of moral flaws on part of people like...tax cheats in Daschle and Geithner, not to mention the husband of Hilda Solis (it's impossible for her not to know about the tax liens). You know, it's funny that the liberals went after Joe the Plumber for his tax troubles, but all of a sudden, fell silent on Daschle, Geithner, and Solis. I guess it's just not only okay to sue so that you can break laws, but as long you're a registered Democrat and a bona fide liberal, it's okay not to pay taxes at all if you're not being nominated for Cabinet positions. But I digress.
In Washington Times article, Barnett acknowledged that over a span of ten years, he stopped over 12,000 illegals. That's an average of 3 or 4 per day, nonstop.
It also said Mr. Barnett acknowledged that he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.
Can you imagine walking out on patrol with a gun in your hand on Christmas Day or even Thanksgiving Day? No rest for this guy, and really, he should get a medal or something like that. He could simply moved out of there, but he choose to stay there. What concerns me the most is the fact the border is increasingly getting more dangerous as Mexico starts to lose control of its government and law enforcement agencies with the rise of deadly drug cartels with highly trained grunts killing each other in power grab plays.
If the illegals win the case, $32 million could buy a lot of weapons and ammunitions, not to mention drugs. Not all illegals enter the US in order to earn more money, some of them are here for illegal reasons: terrorists, drugs, arms smugglers, and perhaps even sex trafficking. In addition, it could mean ranchers like Barnett will be stymied in doing something about the illegals. With President Obama in power, it's unlikely he or people in his administration will be friendly toward guys like Barnett or border patrol agents doing their jobs too well. It's a wet dream come true for many illegals, which is disgusting to say at least.
It's really amazing that Barnett hasn't sued Mexico yet for the wanton desctruction left behind by illegals. He pays out of his pockets to repair the damage done to his property, expecting nothing in return from "hardworking" illegals. He's the real victim here, and nobody at top level in government is doing anything about it.
"This is my land. I´m the victim here," Mr. Barnett said. "When someone´s home and loved ones are in jeopardy and the government seemingly can´t do anything about it, I feel justified in taking matters into my own hands. And I always watch my back."
And it's more unfortuante for victims, because let's face it, criminals have more rights than them. The criminals get due process to be determined guilty or innocent, on the other hand, victims don't have this luxury when they face somebody violating their personal space and taking away the peace of mind from them.
Always remember this: liberals are only interested in you if you agree with their liberal philosophy or if you do so much as looking down on them, you'll get the special treatment. You get that when, God forbid, you actually follow law, and people so favored by liberals suffer mentally and physically by being forced to comply with (gasp!) law. Only liberals and illegals get preferred treatment, while everybody else not in their camp get special treatment. Always remember that! Always.
