I have a question for my readers: Are the President and Vice-President guilty of the crime of Reckless Endangerment by refusing to act on the border crisis by allowing thousands of undocumented migrants to enter the U.S., some of whom are carrying variants of the COVID virus as well as other contagious diseases like Tuberculosis, Aids and Monkey Pox?
For reference the legal definition of Reckless Endangerment is: You are guilty of Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree when, under circumstances evincing a depraved indifference to human life, you recklessly engage in conduct which creates a grave risk of death to another person.
Thus defined, is it correct to assume that ignoring the advice of medical and law enforcement officials the President and Vice President have engaged in Reckless Endangerment if one or more U.S. citizens or undocumented migrants (who are entitled to the protection of U.S. Law) dies from exposure to an individual who, according to the immigration laws of the U.S. should not have been admitted?
I will be interested in your comments on this. I am not a lawyer but I’ve seen every episode of Law and Order and I have to say Dick Wolf convicted corporate entities of reckless endangerment on less evidence than is apparent to observers of the COVID and border crises.
Jump in. Let me hear from you.
