No More Deaths: Unjust Charges

No More Deaths/No Más Muertes

UPDATE: Humanitarian Aid Worker Scott Warren indicted on additional felony charge, facing up to 20 year sentence

A grand jury has indicted Scott Daniel Warren, a volunteer with the organization No More Deaths/No Más Muertes, with three felony charges: two counts of felony harboring and one charge of felony conspiracy. The maximum sentence for these charges is 20 years in prison.

The new conspiracy charge is notable, as conspiracy charges have been used by the government to scare and suppress social justice movements and target political dissidents. This case holds critical weight as the Trump administration targets immigrant rights leaders and those who stand with them nationwide.

No More Deaths is committed to resisting this troubling trend in enforcement and continue our work of ending death and suffering in the borderlands.
