AZ rancher, 73, faces murder charges for defending property from invading illegals

George Alan Kelly is being held on $1 million bail in the shooting death of a previously deported illegal alien invading the Nogales, Arizona ranch on which he and his wife work and live.

Arizona’s failing leftwing newspaper characterized the shooting with the words, “rancher shot and killed a Mexican citizen in the back as he ran for his life.”

Fox News earlier reported a GoFundMe account organized on Kelly’s behalf was booted based on its policy explicitly prohibiting campaigns that raise money to cover the legal defense of anyone formally charged with a alleged violent crime.

An active fundraiser for Kelly remains on the Christian crowd funding platform GiveSendGo.

“Neighbors say that he had been having difficulty keeping invaders out and say that Mr. Kelly would have acted in good faith,” the fundraiser’s organizer, Shannon Pritchard, wrote. “It is a tragedy that a simple farmer, who should be protected by the government, has been abandoned and had to defend himself.”

On his website, in a letter titled, “Welcome to safe, historic and beautiful Santa Cruz County,” Sheriff David Hathaway inanely wrote: “As a family with nine children, we can attest to the fact that Santa Cruz County is a great safe place to raise a family and has the advantage of offering the experience of multiple cultures and easy visits to Mexico.”

Hathaway, a democrat, mostly self-funded his $70,000 campaign in Arizona’s smallest county.

    This is justice turned on its head. The Kelly’s were on their own property and protecting what they had worked to achieve. Illegal aliens are criminals invading the US and in this case, the Kelly’s property.

    Sadly, given the plight of the unconvicted J6 incarcerees and rancher George Kelly, I’m having doubts about the validity of the last words of the Pledge of Allegiance “…witth liberty and justice for all”.

  3. East Valley Conservative says:

    According to this Bureau of Labor Statistics chart Santa Cruz County’s average is wage is barely over $1,000 a week.

    Sheriff Hathaway is making out “like a bandit.” No wonder he made the huge personal investment to get elected in that tiny county. Without any missteps, his job and benefits are secure.

      Hathaway misled people when he was in the race. He’s nothing but an open border Globalist liberal democrat that loves Mexico more than this country. The Old Sheriff let Cochise Cty Sheriff arrest aliens in Santa Cruz – no more since Hathaway took over. Ranchers call BP instead of Sheriff for help. Pathetic. He needs to be thrown out but being D is all that matters in SC County.
