RNS, the Religious News Service, reported this morning that church volunteer Scott Warren was put on trial in June for giving immigrants water and first aid. His case ended in a mistrial, but President Trump's prosecutors are about to try again, with a second trial starting in 8 days (November 12.) Scott could face years in prison, just for giving shelter to people in need.
Scott volunteers with No More Deaths, a Unitarian-Universalist ministry that offers water, food, blankets, and medical aid along the border in Arizona. His arrest was a clear attempt by the Trump administration to crack down on immigrants -- and on all Americans who welcome the stranger and show love to our southern neighbors, reported RNS this afternoon.
