Judge gives away Texan's ranch to illegal aliens

Sick! Just disgusting!

This is over a year old, and I'm not sure how I missed it ... but it's worth reposting for those of you who might have also missed it.

Via ABC7/KIVA.com:

Two immigrants now own a 70-acre Arizona ranch seized from an anti-immigrant activist.

A judge this week signed documents granting the ranch once owned by Casey Nethercott -- to Fatima del Socorro Leiva Medina and Edwin Alfredo Mancia Gonzales.

Nethercott is serving five years in prison stemming from a 2003 incident on a ranch in Hebbronville, Texas, where he confronted the pair.

Nethercott, who's with the group Ranch Rescue, was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Nethercott didn't respond to a lawsuit filed on behalf of the two illegal immigrants from El Salvador.

A judge ordered him to pay 500-thousand dollars. The suit also named Ranch Rescue founder Jack Foote and owners of the ranch in Hebbronville -- Joe and Betty Sutton. The Suttons settled for 100-thousand dollars. Foote must pay 500-thousand dollars.

Leiva and Mancia have temporary legal status as crime victims as they seek to remain in the U-S.
