    West of the ranching community that lost Rob Krentz, one man is taking a very different tack towards migrants. Mike Wilson is a former Army Special Ops guy turned preacher in his fifties. He's a member of the Tohono O'odham tribe. Ten years ago, Mike Wilson found out that dozens of migrants were dying of thirst in the desert within 5 miles of Sells, the tribal capital.

He started leaving 1-gallon jugs of water along known migrant trails, hoping that desperately thirsty people would find them and be saved from dying.
