Monday morning—a new week. Things kicked off with a new email from No More Deaths in my inbox:
Pressure the USAO to drop all charges!
Mon, May 13, 2019 at 7:19 AM
From: No More Deaths/No Mas Muertes <email@example.com>
Today in Tucson Federal Court, Dr. Scott Warren's lawyers will argue in a pre-trial hearing that all charges stemming from his January 2017 arrest should be immediately dropped due to the selective nature of Border Patrol’s enforcement activities and that the arrest was a targeted act of political retaliation resulting from No More Deaths’ open criticism of Border Patrol’s human rights abuses. Read more here.
In response to the growing evidence that we have clearly been targeted by the US Border Patrol, we are asking supporters to call the U.S. Attorney’s Office and demand they drop all charges against Dr. Warren.
And then call every day for the next two weeks! Follow us on social media for updates about the trial and our efforts to get the charges thrown out.
Follow the email’s links and you’ll land on this page, which contains the text below:
From May 13th to May 24th, No More Deaths is asking all supporters to call newly appointed US Attorney Michael Bailey and demand that he drop all charges against Dr. Scott Warren
I am calling to demand USDOJ drop all charges against Scott Warren. This is in reference to case 4:18-cr-00223-RCC-BPV.Given the crisis of death and disappearance of undocumented people on the border, humanitarian aid workers must be allowed to perform their life-saving work without government harassment and prosecution. I oppose the intimidation of aid workers. Humanitarian aid is never a crime!
