EL PASO -- A federal magistrate judge has ruled that the U.S. Border Patrol was not negligent in the 2003 fatal shooting of 19-year-old undocumented Mexican immigrant Juan Patricio Peraza near Downtown El Paso.

Peraza's parents, Cesar Peraza Barraza and ex-wife Ramona Irene Quijada Soto, sued the federal government seeking unspecified damages claiming the death of their son was unjustified.

"While the shooting death of Juan Patricio Peraza is tragic and regrettable, it was not the result of negligence," stated the ruling by U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard P. Mesa filed Thursday in favor of the U.S. government.

On Feb. 22, 2003, Peraza was shot and killed by Border Patrol Agent Vernon Billings while Peraza was wielding a 5-foot pipe in a confrontation with agents near Annunciation House, a Downtown shelter for immigrants.

Gee, I wonder how many Mexicans have been emboldened enough to sue the Mexican government or it's police for derelection of duty, inhumane treatment, denial of civil rights, murder, etc. My guess? ZERO.

If Cesar and his ex-wife are illegal aliens, they need to be deported.
