Supreme Court to hear case involving Mexican teen killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent

This case has significance on a number of levels. First, three impunity with which Border Patrol agents can operate; second, application of US constitutional elements Arya borders and involving non-US persons. That the agent was not charged was shocking to me.

How can a conservative fathom the depths of these complex legal issues if they remain originalists?
