"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.
"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" (Washington Times). Barnett is now being sued for "$32 million in actual and punitive damages for civil rights violations, the infliction of emotional distress and other crimes" by the "five women and 11 men who were trying to cross illegally into the United States [who] have accused Mr. Barnett of holding the group captive at gunpoint, threatening to turn his dog loose on them and saying he would shoot anyone who tried to escape" (Washington Times).
If these illegals win this lawsuit, there is something wrong with this government. These people are illegally in the nation, meaning that they should not be here in the first place and should definitely not be able to take action against the citizen on whose land they were trespassing. And "emotional distress?" I should sue my college for causing me "emotional distress" during finals week.
