The case against Scott Warren, a 36-year-old geography teacher who helped a pair of migrants from Central America who had arrived in Arizona hungry, dehydrated and with blistered feet, resulted in a mistrial Tuesday, The New York Times reports. The mistrial came after jurors said for a second day that they were unable to reach a verdict. Judge Raner C. Collins of the Federal District Court in Tucson set a conference for July 2 to discuss how to proceed.

The trial had drawn worldwide attention and spurred 30 vigils across the United States, a reflection of the fraught debate over immigration issues since President Trump made border security a central issue of his administration.
