SCOTT WARREN HAS lived with a cloud hanging over his head for nearly two 
years. The 37-year-old geographer was arrested in January 2018, accused 
of giving two young men from Central America food, water, and a place to 
sleep over the course of three days. The pair had crossed one of the 
deadliest stretches of the U.S.-Mexico border without authorization. 
They arrived at a humanitarian aid station in the unincorporated town of 
Ajo, Arizona, where Warren lives and works, with nothing but the clothes 
on their backs. Warren welcomed them inside and examined the blisters on 
their feet. He told them that he could provide care, but he could not 
shield them from law enforcement. That was not his role.
