Featured on the June 6th, 2019 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:

- Scott Warren, an Arizona humanitarian worker who is facing federal charges for harboring undocumented migrants, is receiving both support and media attention from around the country. Nancy Montoya provides an update on the trial, which is now in its second week, and says the result could impact humanitarian aid on the U.S. / Mexico border for years to come.

- And, the sun never really sets on the legends of the Old West. Chris Dashiell looks back at two films, The Westerner (1940) and The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972). Both were shot mostly in Tucson, and both dramatized the larger-than-life story of the man who proclaimed himself to be “The Law West of the Pecos” in 1882.
