THE COST OF SAVING LIVES

In July, 2005, Seliz and Strauss were volunteers with No More Deaths, a faith based group that set up camps to offer food, water, and medical assistance to desperate people trying to cross the Arizona desert. The summer is when more border crossers are found dead in the Arizona desert than anywhere along the US/Mexico border. Seliz and Strauss were taking undocumented immigrants into Tucson for medical treatment when they were arrested by US border patrol agents. They have refused a plea bargain, instead taking a stand to allow humanitarian aid to remain legal.
