Editorial: Tohono O'odham man tries to save lives
"We would never try to tell the sovereign Tohono O'odham Nation what to do.

But we commend Mike Wilson for defying his own tribe's authorities for the past seven years.

Wilson has been ordered repeatedly to stop setting up water stations to save illegal immigrants traversing the desert on the vast nation.

But Wilson, 59, was trained as a Presbyterian pastor and is determined to reduce the migrant death toll there.

In the first half of this year, 83 migrants' bodies reportedly were found on the nation."
