Scott Daniel Warren, a 36-year-old Arizona State University geography instructor accused of helping illegal immigrants as they crossed the border, is now a free man for the time being after his case resulted in a mistrial.
Federal prosecutors made the case that Warren conspired with two foreign migrants, helping them to avoid capture as they violated immigration law. Jurors could not ultimately agree on a decision.
Warren is a member of the humanitarian group called No More Deaths. The organization operates near the border, leaving items such as food, water, clothing and other supplies that help illegal migrants funnel into the country without consequence.
Jurors told a federal judge that they could not reach a verdict on Monday regarding Warren’s case. The emotional appeals issued by Warren’s defense attorney may have swayed members of the jury not to convict.
His defense attorney, Gregory Kuykendall, said during a court proceeding that Warren is a “law-abiding, life-giving Good Samaritan,” who “never gave [the migrant men] anything besides basic human kindness.”
Left-wing groups like Human Rights First are celebrating the news as a major victory.
“Warren never should have been prosecuted for providing water and medical aid to migrants in the desert. The prosecution bore the hallmarks of actions taken by authoritarian governments, and we urge the government not to retry the case,” said Human Rights First’s Senior Advisor on Human Rights Defenders Brian Dooley in a press release.
The globalists at the United Nations are also gloating over the decision.
“Humanitarian aid is not a crime,” the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said in a statement.
No More Deaths operates out of Ajo, AZ in their headquarters referred to as “The Barn” where they help facilitate a migrant invasion that has turned into a national emergency.
“In the time since I was arrested in January 2018, no fewer than 88 bodies were recovered from the Arizona desert,” Warren said after the trial ended.
“The government’s plan in the midst of this humanitarian crisis? Policies to target undocumented people, refugees and their families. Prosecutions to criminalize humanitarian aid, kindness and solidarity,” he added.
However, Warren may not be free for long. A July 2 status hearing that is scheduled to take place means re-trial may be in the works. In the mean time, leftists who support open border anarchy have been emboldened.
Border Patrol Expects 13,000 Illegal Alien Minors to Arrive at the Border in May ALONE
A consequence of Biden’s open borders policy.
Customs and Border Patrol is expecting more than 13,000 unaccompanied minor illegal aliens to arrive at the US-Mexico border in the month of May alone, bracing for unprecedented ‘caravan’ style migration to the United States as President Joe Biden dismantles ICE and opens the immigration system to dubious asylum seekers.
A CBP official provided the projection to the Biden administration on Thursday. The already increasing arrival of child migrants during Biden’s presidency have revealed the “kids in cages” talking point of the Left and the media to be little more than a political prop, with CBP and DHS detaining the minors in the exact same detention facilities.
“We’re seeing the highest February numbers than we’ve ever seen in the history of the [Unaccompanied Alien Child] program,” a CBP official was quoted as telling Axios on Thursday. The border agency expects caravan-style migration to pick up in earnest in the spring months, possibly presenting a genuine border crisis for Biden, who has promised to obey a strict ‘America Last’ approach to the border and immigration.
The federal government was never going to release minors from another country onto the streets of the United States without the support of relatives, or hand them off to the already troubled group home system.
Biden’s de facto invitation of illegal immigration will prove to be an invitation for dangerous journeys from minors from Central America and Mexico. Human smugglers often utilize supposed minors to pose as family units in hopes of amnesty from the United States. Many of the unaccompanied minors who arrive in the United States have been instructed to come to the country in hopes of enabling legal residency for the adult family.
The Biden administration is actively expanding minor detention centers in response to the current surge of illegal immigration, with previous faux-moral sanctimony about ‘kids in cages’ demonstrated to be little more than political propaganda. If you don’t want to detain illegal alien minors in federal facilities, don’t create border policies that serve as a de facto invitation for smugglers to traffic them.
