Act of Christian Charity Brings Littering Charge

The LA Times has this story about an Arizona man who was convicted of littering for leaving water bottles in the desert to benefit potential illegal immigrants attempting to cross the barren, hot land to enter the U.S.

The fifth paragraph identifies "faith-based group No More Deaths," of which Walt Staton is a member. The story does not elaborate on the faith-based nature, so I visited the group's web site , which also makes users navigate down into the site pretty far to get past repeated references to the "Humanitarian" cause to learn that the Faith-Based Principles of Immigration Reform inform the group's work.
