The federal government is being asked to abandon its Mexican border policies in response to a spate of deaths of migrants who enter the Tohono O'odham Reservation in Arizona.

Vice Chairman Henry Ramon and Rev. Mike Wilson said the government must end its "policy of death." They held a press conference yesterday to draw attention to the issue.

Wilson has been criticized by some segments of the tribe for placing water jugs on tribal land for illegal migrants.
