This rancer is being sued by 14 illegals for conspiring to violate their civil rights and emotional distress?????? What about his property rights, his right to privacy and his emotional stress?
You who believe in open borders surely cannot believe this is right

  • that poor man, can you imagine having to deal with that on your own land? Hes had to turn over 12,000 immigrants ugh, and now this. I cant believe its even being taken seriously, wouldnt they just deport them, they dont have our civil rights if they arent american, and how can they sue if they are illegal. There was a point in time where I didnt realize how serious the border issues were in America, but it has become more than clear that something has to be done.

  • The article you linked is more than a year old...I cannot find an update on the case. I guess it popped up on the blogosphere because of the immigration law debate.

  • Yes, this article was from 2/2009. I think this man's story has been spread country wide and manipulated along the way. This man has been walking and defending his property for the last 12 years. I wonder if this is the same rancher who purportedly has been "Shot Dead" by numerous illegals? Funny how stories keep reappearing and reinventing themselves as time goes on and situations present.

  • I am for open borders and YES I THINK THIS IS WRONG!!! The law is the law right now. Although I do not agree with it I will still obey it! This is very wrong and as someone else said sadly they probably will win!

    Because, of course, it must be an urban legend, there can't possibly be court records to back it up.


    Oh. Oops.


    The eight-member civil jury found that Roger Barnett didn't violate the immigrants' civil rights in 2004
