Collar illegal aliens/trespassers/litterbugs: Get yer rear sued off.

Well, now, here's a story to make an economic elitist's blood boil:
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....

Trial continues Monday in the federal lawsuit, which seeks $32 million....

Attorneys for the immigrants...who were trying to cross illegally into the United States - 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.
Actually, if they were on Barnett's ranch, they weren't trying, they had ALREADY crossed illegally into the US. But his ranch was stolen from the noble Mexican economic elite way back when, so he really is the trespasser, right?

This may be his real crime:
The lawsuit said he...Mr. Barnett acknowledged that he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.
This is clearly a guy who has to be stopped. 12,000 innocent law breakers? This guy is lucky he hasn't been lynched as a warning to other uppity property "owners".

Jerry Seper has the story in the Washington Times.

A number of the commenters are pretty hot under the collar, though they, for some reason, direct their bile at the illegals and or CDIW. Go figure.
