By No More Deaths/No Mas Muertes
Dear Friends of No More Deaths/ No Más Muertes,
Our son, Scott Warren, a long-time humanitarian aid volunteer with No More Deaths, is on trial for federal felony charges - for providing food, water and beds to two migrants - that could send him to prison for 20 years. As his parents, we are, of course, terrified at the prospect that our son might be imprisoned. Scott is a kind, compassionate and generous man who feels compelled to address the tragedy of death and suffering unfolding daily in the very desert where he lives.
UPDATE: The U.S. District Court in Rapid City will hear this case on Wednesday, June 12. ACLU Files First Amendment Challenge to South Dakota Anti-Protest Laws.
