Gael García Bernal of Hermosillo, Mexico, was arrested by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) late Thursday evening while attempting to enter the United States through the Mexico/California border, but not without some incident.
Upon placing Gael in cuffs, ICE officials realized that he had sustained excessive injuries to the lower legs, thigh, and crotch area.
He told them that he had been dragged under and brutalized by an alligator, and that he needed medical attention.
ICE transported Gael to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries — at the cost of taxpayers.
His lawyer, Jorge Ramos of Univision, said that California had placed an undue risk upon him when he crossed the river, by allowing the alligator to reside there.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra responded to Brietbart Insider emails, telling us that the government of California would was likely to settle the lawsuit for ‘less than the 15.2 million requested by Mr. Bernal’ and that California Sheriffs were considering putting up warning signs to let other migrants know the dangers of crossing the river during nighttime.
