    Thank god for whoever held out on that jury. It is a solutely insane that someone could face 20 years for providing food and water to migrants who would literally die without these activists. The Border Patrol agents slashing water containers and spoiling food are the ones who should be facing jail time.

    Despicable laws like the ine this man was charged under demonstrate how important it is that all Americans know what jury nullification is and how they dont have to support an immoral system.

        That is much better than I expected. When I was reading on this last night they said none of the jury discussed the trial with the media and it was not known what the exact split was.
