Federal prosecutors are preparing to announce whether they'll retry a border activist after a U.S. jury was unable to reach a verdict against him on charges of conspiracy to transport and harbor migrants.

The decision about whether to file new charges against Scott Daniel Warren is expected at a court hearing Tuesday. 

During Warren's trial in June, defense attorneys argued he was just being kind by giving two migrants water, food and lodging when he was arrested in early 2018. He faced up to 20 years imprisonment.

The U.S. House has approved a $4.5 billion emergency border aid package to care for thousands of migrant families and unaccompanied children detained after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
