The political cartoon “Idiot Box” depicted a real nature preserve on the U.S. - Mexico border where somebody was leaving water out for migrants, but that’s all right, migrant monarch butterflies.
Our government’s current policy of tear-gassing people who arrive on U.S. soil and who ask for political asylum is contrary to treaty conventions previously ratified by the U.S. Senate and signed by the President. The treaties are binding on all United States citizens. Therefore, these women who were helping migrants to survive were only obeying the law of the land in doing so.
If the women were intending to go out of their way to obey United States laws, then criminal intent has certainly not been shown. So, the written requirements of proof of guilt can’t be shown at all, much less beyond a reasonable doubt.
According to the United States Constitution, all such treaties are equally the law of the land with bills passed by both houses of Congress and not vetoed by the president, or bills where a presidential veto is overridden. Tell your judge that all such treaties are equally binding on all federal and state judges.
