Neil Cavuto confronted the attorney of an illegal immigrant drug smuggler who was bitten by a US Border Patrol Canine and is now suing the United States Government for up to a million dollars in damages.
As reported by Fox News, Jose Manuel Marino-Najera was caught sixty miles inside the US border with a backpack full of marijuana when Border Patrol agents came upon him and several of his criminal cohorts. As the agents were attempting to round-up the other individuals who took off running, the canine latched onto Marino-Najera, causing bite wounds to his arm.
The illegal invader was convicted of drug smuggling and spent six months behind bars, but he is now suing, in essence, the American tax payers for a large sum of money for damages he claims include medical expenses, lost income, and emotional suffering.
Cavuto invited Marino-Najera’s attorney, Bill Risner, to have a conversation about how this illegal’s lawsuit could possibly be justified. As evidenced in the video, Neil was flabbergasted at the idea that the criminal would have any standing at all in suing our government.
“We’re talking about someone who broke into this country illegally with drugs. He is now suing taxpayers in this country, thinking that he is owed something from people he’s not,” Cavuto said.
Cavuto asked, “If I broke into your house and I tripped and broke my ankle on your stairs on the way up to empty out your wife’s jewelry chest, do I have a legal right to sue your ass?”
“No,” Risner said.
“Of course not, because I broke into your house!” Cavuto exclaimed.
As with most altercations between criminals and law enforcement, there is a chain of events which is set in motion by one single catalyst. There must be a choice made. Clearly, in this case, Marino-Najera made a conscious decision to cross our border illegally while carrying a large amount of illegal drugs. Had he not done so, the rest of the incident would never have happened. It is that simple. Case dismissed.
What’s your opinion? Do you think the illegal invader should be allowed to sue over his injuries? We’d love to hear from you in the comments section below.
