Many of you were calling for jury nullification--indeed, this is why we have juries, so that humans can say NO when the law is wrong.
***THEY SAID NO.*** https://t.co/atB3Fglyzv
Matthew 25: 31-40. “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

Scott Warren just spoke briefly to his friends and supporters. He highlighted the 88 sets of human remains found in the desert since his arrest, and spoke of the migrants he was arrested with and how they, sadly, have not received the same attention and support that he has.

BREAKING FROM NO MORE DEATHS: There was a hung jury in Dr. Scott Warren's felony case. He will not be convicted with two counts of felony harboring and one count of felony conspiracy for his humanitarian aid work in Ajo, Arizona.
A status conference is scheduled for July 2, so the story is not over.
As Warren’s attorney, Greg Kuykendall, told the crowd, “Scott Warren remains innocent as a legal and practical matter.”
Warren was arrested on last year in Ajo, Arizona at a site used for giving immigrants food, water, beds and clean clothes. The arrest came hours after aid group #NoMoreDeaths accused the Border Patrol of tampering with water stations left for migrants. https://t.co/fZ3IsuQdrg
