  US Citizen displaced for an illegal invader. A man's home is his castle No Longer
Migrants awarded vigilante's Ariz. ranch: "The land transfer satisfies judgments in a lawsuit in which the immigrants had claimed that Casey Nethercott, the owner of the ranch and a former leader of the vigilante group Ranch Rescue, had harmed them.

'Certainly it's poetic justice that these undocumented workers own this land,' said Morris S. Dees Jr., chief trial counsel of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., which represented the immigrants.

The surrender of the ranch comes as the governors of Arizona and New Mexico have declared states of emergency because of the influx of undocumented immigrants and related crime along the border.

Bill Dore, a Douglas resident briefly affiliated with Ranch Rescue and still active in the border-patrolling Minuteman Project, called the land transfer 'ridiculous.'

'The illegals are coming over here,' Dore said. 'They are getting the American property. Hell, I'd come over, too. Get some American property, make some money from the gringos.'

The immigrants getting the ranch, Edwin Alfredo Mancia Gonzales and Fatima Del Socorro Leiva Medina, could not be reached for comment. Kelley Bruner, a lawyer at the law center, said they were happy."
