Trial today began with video of the interrogation of the two men arrested with Dr. Warren, Jose and Kristian, detained until they testified, then deported. We acknowledge that these stories are not ours to tell, but we also don’t want their experiences to be erased.
Jose and Kristian are from Honduras and El Salvador, respectively. Like so many people who attempt this journey, they had traveled for months by the time they scaled the wall and entered the Arizona desert. #noalmuro #noborderwall
They described dropping their food and water after seeing @CBP in the desert near Ajo, but continued on through the cold, without any supplies. Jose explained how he navigated north - “Q: you know how to guide yourself by the starlight? A: By the stars, yes.”

Today, as Scott Warren's misdemeanor trial for leaving water for people in the desert on #CabezaPrieta, the refuge ironically posts this about the importance of drinking water in the desert - for pronghorns:
which they must resupply with water driven through the wilderness area on trucks. Today @USFWS regional director Juliette Fernandez testified that they put blue flags on animal water tanks, but this water is not safe for humans to drink.
Judge Collins asks, "water in blue flag tanks isn't potable - How do you make sure people know it isn't safe to drink?"

Fernandez from @USFWS answered: "Yeah, I'm not sure."
