Can Humanitarian Aid Be a Crime?

A federal judge in Tucson is now deciding whether to dismiss charges against two humanitarian workers who are being accused of "taking three dying migrants to the hospital." If you needed any more evidence of the dehumanization of Latinos in U.S. society, the mere idea that taking dying people to the hospital could constitute a crime (one, evidently, punishable by "up to 15 years in prison") should be enough to convince anyone to the left of Pat Buchanan that we are living in a deeply sick and racist society.
