Presidential “America First” Orthodoxy vs. Congress’s Outcry to Extend the Presumption of Innocence to “US Person” Outside the Legal Jurisdiction of the United States

By instinct, as a young child crawls to his parents’ bed when scared, we resort to our country’s diplomatic posts (embassy/consulate) as a beacon of hope and protection when something goes wrong.

“America First” without protecting the American people against harm would be a void promise akin to allowing thieves to take the engine of your car while you’re polishing the paint with high quality wax.
