An illegal alien is claiming that his right to self-defense is protected under the Second Amendment of the constitution.
Javier Perez, a Mexican national, was charged after he fired a round into the air in Brooklyn in order to ward off rival gang members in 2016, reported The New York Daily News. Perez is now claiming in a Brooklyn federal court that his right to bear arms is guaranteed under the constitution despite not being a United States citizen.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The Framers were clear: if they meant citizens, they would have said citizens. But they didn’t,” Samuel Jacobson, Perez’s lawyer, argued. “There is no suggestion that there was a concept of ‘illegal alien’ and no suggestion that if you were from a foreign country, you couldn’t bear arms.”
Perez’s case was allowed to move ahead despite objection from the federal prosecutor.
