Cross the border and get a free house

So what's the easiest way to get your own house if you're an illegal alien? Simply trespass onto someone's property and get yourself pistol-whipped:

DOUGLAS - Spent shells litter the ground at what is left of the firing range, and camouflage outfits still hang in a storeroom. Just a few months ago, this ranch was known as Camp Thunderbird, the headquarters of a paramilitary group that vowed to use force to keep illegal immigrants from sneaking across the border from Mexico.

Now, the 70-acre property about two miles from the border is being given to two immigrants the group caught trying to enter the United States illegally.

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.

So a judge can just do that? Granted the marbles aren't completely accounted for with this paramilitary group but this is outrageous. Illegal immigrants should never, under any circumstances, be awarded American land. What if these had been potential terrorists?

Grrrrrr. Full story below:
