Note: Grassroots Tohono O'odham are delivering emergency food to the homes of O'odham on the Sonoran side of the border, who have been cut off from their food supply by the U.S. Border Patrol. O'odham have recently been arrested, and The Gate traditional crossing has been closed. Grocery stores on the Sonoran side are hours away, and travel is over deeply rutted roads. One O'odham woman on the Sonoran side has suffered from malnutrition twice. -- Censored News
