Mexican officials are “considering filing a lawsuit against a U.S. Army reservist who detained seven Mexican
undocumented migrants illegal aliens at gunpoint in Arizona, a Mexican official said yesterday.”
The lawsuit could argue that reserve Sgt. Patrick Haab engaged in assault or illegal detention of the immigrants or caused them mental anguish, Gutierrez said.
If this suit doesn’t get laughed out of the first court it’s filed in, it will be a travesty. This is the height of frivolous litigation.
Local prosecutors in Arizona refused to bring charges against Haab in the April 10 case, based on a state law that allows a resident to make an arrest when a
felony, including immigrant trafficking, has been committed.
Imagine the precedent that would be set if lawsuits were allowed to proceed against U.S. citizens properly enforcing the laws of the United States against non-citizens committing crimes. Maybe it’s time we launched a massive class-action against the Mexican government for supporting the illegal migration of its citizens to the U.S.
Stop the insanity.
