A new program put together by liberal whack-jobs at the University of California in San Diego will provide free GPS-enabled cell phones to illegal aliens prior to starting their border crossing. The phones will provide direction to watering holes during their journey and recite poetry on the way.
Faculty at University of California, San Diego, are developing a GPS-enabled cell phone that tells dehydrated migrants where to find water — and also broadcasts poetry, regaling them on their journey much like Emma Lazarus’ words did a century ago to the “huddled masses yearning to breathe free” on Ellis Island.
The Transborder Immigrant Tool is part technology endeavor, part art project. It introduces a high-tech twist to an old debate about how far activists can go to prevent migrants from dying on the border without breaking the law. …
The designers, who have raised $15,000 from a UCSD grant and an art festival award, hope to hand out phones for free in Mexico. The phones sell used for about $30 apiece. It costs nothing to add the GPS software.
Distribution would be tightly controlled by migrant shelters and advocacy groups to keep them away from anti-illegal immigration activists. The migrants would need passwords to use them.
If a private group wants to get out there and provide water stations to help people stay alive, I’m perfectly fine with that. But pre-arranged organized activity to provide material support to those trying to enter the United States illegally … well … would be illegal would it not?
The article notes hundreds die each year trying to cross the border through the desert. Why are law enforcement agencies refusing to charge these migrant shelters and advocacy groups with murder? The Border Patrol saves lives when they find illegal aliens about to die, but these groups are the ones killing people.
The group has published verses to be played on the phone’s “Global Poetic System.”
One poem reads, “May your tracks cut the shortest distance between points A and B.”
Maybe they could get Al Gore to read the poems?
