    Illegal immigration app

    Wow! This article is just... Wow! Check it out:

    LEAD STORY: Mexican immigrant needing help evading the Border Patrol? There's an app for that!

    Big-time traffickers who smuggle illegal immigrants into the U.S. from Mexico rely on GPS devices to evade the Border Patrol, but starting in June, border-jumpers who travel on their own can have protection, too. Three University of California, San Diego faculty members have designed inexpensive cell phones with special software to locate water, churches and medical facilities in the treacherous Southwest desert (while avoiding law enforcement) and will give the devices to Mexican charities. The phones, which will also feature "welcome to the U.S." poetry, are expected to save the lives of many of the hundreds who die each year on their dangerous journeys, but illegal-immigration protesters are demanding that the academics be arrested for assisting in crimes. [USA Today-AP, 12-29-09]
    How hilarioius is that??

    Now, I understand that the three people from UC San Diego are only trying to help their fellow man. But, by providing them resources to migrate illegally in to this country? C'mon now! We've already got enough problems with illegal immigration. There are TONS of people who are tryin' to get in here LEGALLY that end up waiting YEARS before they're able to get in the country as a US citizen! Don't these people realize that they're only adding to the problem? Granted the legal way of coming in the country has a LOT of red tape and bureaucracy that prospective immigrants have to go through, it's the only way we have that's legal and no person who cheats the system should be looked upon as a "help" to others when the person they're helping will always worry about being deported from this country. How is that helping?

    What I want to discuss is this: Do you think that these guys are doin' the right thing by providing these phones with the built in "migration app" to those who are journeying through the southwestern dessert? Or, do you think they're committing an illegal act and, therefore, should be punished?


    *Does your phone let you talk to your friend while using the GPS feature when sneaking your way in to the US? Droid does!*

    When The Rulers Are Men Who Came Over The Sea Who Is Alien

    Though it was their land build a wall to keep out all.
    Yet its nickname “land of the free,” we will still call.

    For the ills facing this country only they seem to care.
    They are more patriot than some born here it would seem.
    Mayor Gordon exchange those on welfare for them over there.
    Tear lady liberty down, she outlived the American dream.

    Paint it white, here is what she would say today.
    “Let not a score of the poor touch the shore.
    As for the filthy give no visas or passes.
    Just the white and rich you should bring,
    See to it they speak English of the king.
    Exile exiles, keep only the elite.
    Harboring hope: A mistake we will not repeat.”

    speaking from a humanitarian viewpoint: I would rather have Illegals not die out in the desert, what does that say about us has humans if we let this kind of thing happen?

    I seconed what Aceman said. I don't think it'd be right to just leave them out there to die. Also, for a free country, has anyone noticed how much it leans twards being a control-freak of a nation? Just saying.
    What? You've never seen a talking cabbage before? Well, if you were a bit more open minded, then maybe you WOULD have.

    If they can afford a GPS with that kind of app they might aswell buy a bus ticket or just pay some one to take them to the US
