VICTORY: JURY REFUSES TO CONVICT ACTIVIST FOR GIVING WATER TO MIGRANTS

Humanitarian volunteer and college professor, Scott Warren, was arrested last year by border patrol for leaving out water for migrants. Warren was charged with two counts of harboring illegal aliens and one count of conspiracy to transport and harbor illegal aliens. For the last year, he was staring down the possibility of being thrown in a cage for 20 years for giving thirsty people water. However, this week, a jury refused to convict the man for simply giving water to those in need.

“Today it remains as necessary as ever for local residents and humanitarian aid volunteers to stand in solidarity with migrants and refugees, and we must also stand for our families, friends and neighbors in the very land itself most threatened by the militarization of our borderland communities,” Warren said outside the courthouse on Tuesday.

According to a report from the Guardian, jurors said on Monday that they could not reach a consensus on the charges against Warren, but a federal judge told them to keep deliberating. They were still deadlocked on Tuesday and ultimately dismissed.
