It's Things Like This That Makes Blood Shoot Out Of My Eyes

Barack Obama and his administration want to wag their fingers and shake their heads at Arizona's new law. But the simple fact is that the law passed because crap like this was allowed to happen.

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.

Push backs happen too. Especially when people have the power of the ballot box.

Thanks to Karen.

  1. Stories like this make my blood boil also. Their civil rights? Their in our Country illegally. What happens when you step into foreign soil in Iran? Where are the rights for the American people - strong and true - who are simply trying to protect their property? I just don't get it.

  2. Barack Obama is a singular person. Their fingers and their heads is a plural. I know I know, I sound like the grammar police, but if you want your opinion to be taken seriously you should probably fix that.

    I agree this lawsuit is inane
