Last week, a federal trial opened in Phoenix against activist Scott Warren, who faces up to twenty years in prison for felony counts of “harboring” undocumented immigrants by providing humanitarian aid to migrants crossing the Arizona desert. Warren is one of several volunteers affiliated with the group No More Deaths/No Más Muertes (English/Español) to have been targeted for prosecution in recent years. Warren was arrested in early 2018, shortly after helping to publicize a video of Border Patrol agents sabotaging water left for migrants in the desert. Many observers consider the arrest to be politically motivated.
