Deadline Tuesday in KC Massey firearms case

KC Massey

Brownsville – A June 2 pre-trial hearing is the deadline for Judge Andrew Hanen to rule on a motion to suppress the evidence against KC Massey III and dismiss the case for a felon in possession of a firearm.

Massey and a group of volunteers were patrolling a stretch of the Rio Grande near this city in the late summer and early fall of 2014 when he was arrested after a Border Patrol Agent fired at another man who had possession of a firearm Massey had issued to him. The patrol was mounted in protest of U.S. border protection policies the group led by Massey viewed as lax on illegal immigration. 

The Offense

The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals at New Orleans earlier this week upheld Judge Hanen’s injunction granted in a writ of mandamus sought by 28 states to stay the executive order by the Obama Administration from allowing a 5-year amnesty period for immigrants who have entered the U.S. illegally. 

The Defense

Author Gary Hunt is predicting a favorable ruling. If not, the Court will proceed to jury selection on Wednesday, June 3.
