And in Arizona, a humanitarian aid group helping migrant border crossers says U.S. Border Patrol officers raided their medical aid encampment, arresting four migrants and endangering the lives of others. Last Thursday’s raid on the No More Deaths encampment about 15 miles from the Mexican border reversed an informal policy under the Obama administration that for years saw Border Patrol agents allow the group to provide water, food, shelter and medical aid to migrants. In a statement, No More Deaths said, “The targeting of this critical medical aid is a shameful reflection of the current administration’s disregard for the lives of migrants and refugees, making an already dangerous journey even more deadly.”
