TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The Latest on the trial of a border activist in Arizona accused of harboring immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally (all times local):

5 p.m.

Jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations Tuesday morning in the trial of a border activist in Arizona accused of harboring immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally.

The jury received the case Friday in U.S. District Court in Tucson before breaking for the weekend and then resuming deliberations Monday.

Scott Warren is a volunteer for a humanitarian aid group who was arrested in early 2018.

Prosecutors charge Warren conspired to harbor two immigrants, saying they weren't in distress when Warren provided them with food and shelter in a building used to aid sick migrants who have just crossed into the U.S.

Warren says he was fulfilling his duty to help others when he encountered the migrants near the Mexico border.

The trial has been condemned by critics who say President Donald Trump's administration is targeting border activists.
