Man Arrested After Defending His Property From Illegal Migrants

By

A man was just arrested after firing a gun to defend his property from a group of illegal immigrants:

A Texas homeowner has been arrested for firing his gun in an apparent attempt to scare a group of illegal immigrants when he saw them running through his property after crossing the border.

Enrique Fernandez, 56, was arrested in Brownsville, Texas, after agents who were patrolling the border heard the shots and called the local sheriff’s department.

The house sits yards away from the Rio Grande. Next to his house there is a large field.

Fernandez claimed that border patrol agents chased the migrants onto his property and that he was merely trying to scare them away.

He fired three shots and no one was injured.

When border patrol agents heard the shots, they called the Cameron County Sheriff’s Department who went to his home.

Fernandez insisted that he did not fire directly at them.

Because he is a convicted felon who is banned from owning guns, he was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

While I sympathize with the man, he most likely felt threatened, you can’t just fire guns at people, and secondly he’s a former felon, so the police acted properly here.

That said, this is EXACTLY why we need the wall, and need it soon!
