Illegal alien arrests at Arizona aid camp

PHOENIX - The arrests of four people at a desert-aid camp for migrants Thursday may suggest a more aggressive border control policy taking shape in southern Arizona and could deter some from seeking help as a scorching heat wave approaches.

The arrests at a camp in Arivaca, which was established to prevent the deaths of migrants crossing Arizona's desert, came after federal authorities monitored the aid station for about two days, said Emma Buck, a volunteer with No More Deaths, which operates the site.

They also came without the usual legal negotiations for their surrender, Buck said. Instead, U.S. Customs and Border Protection obtained a warrant and arrested four people at the camp, which is about 11 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border.

Buck said that seems at odds with an agreement No More Deaths reached with federal officials several years ago in which border authorities said they would not impede humanitarian efforts.
