In Arivaca, Arizona, Border Patrol agents raided a humanitarian aid camp run by the group No More Deaths on Thursday. One person was detained. The camp, located some 10 miles from the border with Mexico, is used to provide water, food and medical attention to refugees crossing into the U.S. through the Sonoran Desert, where temperatures continue to rise above 100 degrees. The raid came one day after No More Deaths published documents revealing the Border Patrol Union, a pro-Trump and anti-immigrant extremist group, had instigated a June 2017 raid of the same camp, calling in support from BORTAC, Border Patrol’s special operations unit — the same unit that was recently deployed to Portland to suppress protesters.
