Believe It Or Not: Illegals To Sue Deputies

This story should really be in the museum in St. Augustine

(Washington Times) Two illegal aliens plan a multimillion-dollar civil rights lawsuit against a Texas deputy who was sentenced to prison over an April 2005 incident in which the lawman shot at an alien-smuggling vehicle that he said had just tried to run him down. 

Edwards County Deputy Sheriff Guillermo F. Hernandez, along with his boss, Sheriff Donald G. Letsinger, have been targeted in a pending lawsuit by Maricela Rodriguez-Garcia and Candido Garcia-Perez, two Mexicans who were being smuggled into the U.S. when they were injured by fragments of the lawman's bullets.

Both Mexican nationals are thought to be in the U.S. and have filed notice that they intend to sue. A legally required mediation hearing, where disputing parties meet with a neutral third party to try to resolve a dispute without going to court, is scheduled for today in Austin.

According to the sources, the lawsuit will accuse the deputy and the sheriff of violating the civil rights of the two illegals, will seek reimbursement for medical expenses and punitive damages for pain, suffering and mental anguish. It also will target Edwards County, the sources said, saying the sheriff's department's deadly force policy was unconstitutional and allowed Hernandez to overreact with excessive force.

First of all, the two deputies were convicted by the same prosecuter, Johnny Sutton, as the two jailed border agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. It had originally been determined that they followed the law. The case was handed off to the FBI and they were convicted of violating the civil rights of the two illegal aliens. Unbelievable.

Second, when Maricela Rodriguez-Garcia and Candido Garcia-Perez show up, why not just arrest them immediately and deport them back to Mexico? I mean

Court records show Mrs. Rodriguez-Garcia and Mr. Garcia-Perez told investigators that they paid $2,000 each to be taken across the Rio Grande from Acuna, Mexico. They said they later met the vehicle's driver and a guide, who were to take them to Austin and Dallas.

Wait. Court records? So they knew they were here illegally and how much they paid to come here illegally, and were not immediately sent back?

"In America, we admire our law-enforcement officers for their courage and dedication," he said. "However, police officers are not above the law they enforce."

But, apparently illegal aliens, and federal prosecutors, are above the law. Why is Sutton not prosecuting them, and sending them back?

    Gawd Teach, I’m sick to my stomach now. You know how I felt about the Compean/Ramos thing.

    Redbeard WT – During my military career, everytime I re-enlisted for four more years of service I raised my right hand and was sworn in for another term by saying “…protect this nation from all enemies foreign and domestic…so help me God!” The president also took a similar oath on January 20, 2004. I am sickened by our US borderless borders and lack of security and manpower. And when enforcement is attempted – here comes CNN and the Demlibloonies and the ACLU and the NAACP and the NBA, etc! And most other nations enforce their borders (not Mexico or Canada)and we aren’t. Pathetic!
