Leaving jugs of water in the desert for desperate migrants can be a crime.  The Border Patrol regularly hunts for them to stab and drain. Thousands of people have already died in the vast desert trying to escape violence in Central American countries whose militaristic government was often put there by American interests. Not all Americans agree that cruelty to migrants is a good policy. In fact there’s a trial about to begin against Scott Warren and others working with No More Deaths, a Ministry of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson. On this show  Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) organizer Hannah Hafter paints a picture of  the aggressive and frankly childish cruelty carried out by many (not all) agents. Humanitarians are volunteering to protect these people and fight against the blatantly selective law enforcement. All of us can help.
