16 illegals sue Arizona rancher

As posted at my car club, the Washington Times is reporting a story about 16 illegal Mexicans suing an Arizona rancher who claims they were trespassing on his property in order to enter the country illegally. Seems like the guy was doing the government a favor by helping to protect our sovereign borders from illegal entry by possible terrorists.  This case seems quite similar to the Ramos-Compean case with the difference being that this guy didn't discharge his weapon, didn't try to cover up any shootings and in fact called the proper authorities at the time of the incident. 

It bugs me that our US taxpayer (one word, thanks Alyssa Passeggio!) money is being spent to hold a trial to put a US citizen on trial, defending himself, at his own cost, against accusations by law breakers. Oddly enough, since these 16 people are not US citizens and should not be granted permission to enter the country on a visa or for any reason due to their illegal border crossing actions, I have to wonder how the defendant will be granted his right to face his accuser(s). Certainly I don't want them in this country for any reason - they crossed the border illegally, who knows what other illegal actions they might take if we allow them in legally.
