Trial Begins for No More Deaths Volunteer Who Aided Migrantsposted on June 3, 2019
CNN’s Bob Ortega reports from the trial of Scott Warren, a volunteer with the aid group No More Deaths, which helps migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border by, among other things, leaving food and water in the desert. The group is a ministry of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson. Ortega writes, “For many in the overflow crowd attending the first two days of the federal trial of Scott Warren last week, the stakes were clear: Under the Trump administration, where does humanitarian aid to the thousands of migrants traversing the Arizona desert cross the line into a crime?” Warren faces 20 years in prison.
