Sadly, Illegal Alien Lawsuit Against Rancher Nothing New

By Debbie Schlussel
You may have read about the illegal alien lawsuit against an Arizona rancher. The story, written by Washington Times reporter Jerry Seper–who admittedly (in e-mails to me) reads this site and has ripped off (without credit) exclusive stories from this site about ICE–is nothing new.
This isn’t the first time nor, unfortunately, the last time that illegal aliens have and will use our legal system to take away the freedoms, rights, and property of American citizens. Fortunately for the rancher in this case, Roger Barnett, he is only being sued civilly.
As I noted on this site several years ago, in “Gaza in Arizona: How ‘Civil Rights’ Lawyer Morris Dees Seized American Land For Illegal Aliens,” Dees and his Southern Poverty Law Center helped prosecute secure borders advocates and put them behind bars. Not only that, but the SPLC and the ACLU worked with the U.S. government to seize the Arizona ranch of the anti-illegal alien activists and secure U.S. citizenship for the illegal aliens. That was despite the fact that these activists gave the illegal aliens cookies, water, and warm blankets.


Here’s a snippet of what happened then:

Two miles from the border with Mexico, U.S. citizen Casey Nethercott’s dream ranch is now the property of Edwin Alfredo Mancia Gonzales and Fatima del Socorro Leiva Medina, both illegal immigrants from El Salvador.
And Nethercott didn’t sell it to them. They took it by force, after trespassing on it to sneak into the U.S. All orchestrated by Dees.
Dees’ legal squad used American courts to put Nethercott in jail and transfer his property to the illegals he tried to keep out.

Read the rest.
The story in the case against Roger Barnett has a similar storyline. Illegal aliens break the law and enter through the Southern border illegally. An Arizona rancher catches them on his property and points a gun at them until authorities arrive. The rancher is now the bad guy and the object of endless nightmare litigation, to the point he will lose everything even if he wins.
These federal prosecutions and lawsuits are not new, but they are increasing in volume because we do nothing and accept this as the status quo. Wall or no wall, crackdown on illegal aliens or not, we are losing the battle in the courts.
The lawsuit highlighted in the news today is just the latest on a downward spiral in our fight against illegal aliens and an upward spiral in their frivolous, absurd legal actions to secure their entry into our country and a golden ticket to remain here. In this case, the lawyers are from MALDEF–the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Foundation. But it makes no difference, which part of the alphabet soup of America’s ruin perpetrates the legal actions. They are winning, and we are losing.
The Courts are where Muslims are asserting Islam upon our country, and it is where illegal aliens are securing their invasion and takeover of our country.
If we ignore the courts, we do so at our peril. Unlike the border, there is no barrier to the ridiculous whatsoever in America’s unduly “hallowed” legal forums.

He’s just doing the job that Americans (ICE) won’t do.

The good news is…(yuk, yuk)Obama has sprung into action in an effort to ease the suffering of the poor Paleostinians…. he’s going to bring them to a neighbourhood near you!
“$20.3 Million for the Resettlement of Radical Muslims ”
Meanwhile, the innocent victims of Palestinian terror continue to live in fear as they dodge ever more advanced rockets.

I agree with this post, but I don’t think it is just the courts. Our Presidents have welcomed illegal aliens and have all gone out of their way to make sure that they can pretty much do what they want. The Executive Branch not only does not enforce existing laws but actively resists using computer technology to enforce legal status for employees. Congress does not pass laws cracking down on illegal immigration, and passes massive spending bills which give hard-earned taxpayer money to these freeloaders, criminals and anti-Americans. It is all of them; a government-wide reakdown of law enforcement.

PS; Debbie, when are you going to write a book? Most of the people who have plagiarized from you have written best-sellers. A book would be a good way to reach more people. You know more about Muslim penetration than probably anyone else in the country.

MALDEF is trash and seeks the overthrow of America by any means possible. They believe in Reconquista, similar to Palestinians. They believe America is occupied territory. Just like the Muslims, illegal alien advocates have their seditious friends in Liberals who ultimately will use any avenue to see the overthrow the government. Too many good Americans have no idea the secret agenda of all these radical groups.
All quilted together to overthrow justice and what is right.

He should have done himself and everyone else a favor and just shot them. Just like muslim terrorists, the best illegal aliens are dead ones.

I can’t believe you’re defending this nut-job Nethercott. What’s his background Debbie? Is he just a zealous American or does he have a history of violent racist leanings? He lost his house because he broke the law by owning (and using) a firearm while on probation for felony assault!

    What do you mean he used a weapon? I thought I read that the jury was deadlocked on this one. I still have no idea why he lost his property. He wasn’t supposed to have a weapon, so yeah, he violated his parole or something, but the loss of the property after giving cookies and stuff to them. I don’t get it.

Debbie, sadly enough it’s not about borders anymore and the precedent with the guy’s ranch as well as the settlers being kicked out of Gush Katif is all part of the greater picture. Remove borders to create regions in favor of a One World government. I love Arizona. But today I wouldn’t want to live there anymore because all the border states are subject to more terrorism even if it is not the Jihadi kind. Tamar Yonah got it right on this one.

I was stationed in Phoenix for many years. It’s such a beautiful and wonderful city. But, then we have an influx of illegal mexicans. Now, the west side of Phoenix known as the Maryville Section, is a ghetto. It’s like going into little mexico. And it’s just spreading to the north. The crime rate in that section of PHX is unbelievable high. I know so many border patrol agents who made a move to another agency due to they weren’t permitted to do their jobs. I always believed that our illegal immigration is the major reason America has so many different and complex problems.

Debbie, thank you for showing the world that American Women are strong, informed and intelligent. And thank you for sharing this information so that all of America who values their freedom can be educated.
