A border activist was acquitted of harboring undocumented immigrants in Arizona.

Two Central American men were staying at a camp run by a humanitarian group in Arizona. This lead to the arrest of Scott Warren, the activist running the camp, for allegedly illegally harboring immigrants. After a long battle in court, including a mistrial last year, he was acquitted on Wednesday. The prosecutor argued that Warren was helping the men hide from authorities, while Warren argued that his humanitarian work aims to keep people from dying in the desert, and he was “orienting” the men before they went on their way. In the end, the jury came out in Warren’s favor. After the verdict, the U.S. attorney said that the government would continue to prosecute those who harbor immigrants, whether for money or “a misguided sense of social justice.”
