Mexican Commission to Give Migrants Maps

By MARK STEVENSON, Associated Press Writer 19 minutes ago

A Mexican government commission said Tuesday it will distribute at least 70,000 maps showing highways, rescue beacons and water tanks in the Arizona desert to curb the death toll among illegal border crossers.

The National Human Rights Commission, a government-funded agency with independent powers, denied the maps — similar to a comic-style guide booklet Mexico distributed to migrants last year — would encourage illegal immigration.

Officials said the maps would help guide those in trouble find rescue beacons and areas with cell phone reception. The maps will also show the distance a person can walk in the desert in a single day.

"We are not trying in any way to encourage or promote migration," said Mauricio Farah, one of the commission's national inspectors. "The only thing we are trying to do is warn them of the risks they face and where to get water, so they don't die."

But some advocates of greater immigration control were irritated by the map announcement.

"What's next? Are they going to buy them bus tickets to Chicago?" said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based think tank. "It's clearly a bad thing for Mexico to be encouraging illegal immigration."

The comic booklet for migrants was distributed by the government in early 2005 and warned of the perils of crossing illegally into the United States, while offering tips to stay safe.

The booklet, of which about 1.5 million were printed, enraged some advocates of stricter immigration policies in the United States who argue that it encouraged illegal migration.

We could make those maps obsolete with a mine field along the border.

Stake out all the areas the maps show as narrow crossing, resting spots, and watering holes.

Maybe Texans and Arizonans can stand at the border handing out tar, feathers, and booklets on getting rid of corrupt govt. (lots of illustrations), before turning these people back.

I heard (not read) that the Arizona Republic (aka RAG, Repulsive....Repugnant) had the maps printed out on page A8 today.

The invasion continues.

And the elected government officials continue to fail in their Constitutional obligation.

The Mexican government is supporting an invasion of the United States. I think this should be treated as an act of war.

It is an overt act of war, and must be treated that way. PC crowd be damned.

This explains the Mexican Army incursions. They've only been reconnoitering to make these maps!

The United States has been adversely affected more by it's proximity to Mexico than all middle-eastern sponsored terrorism combined including 9/11.

Distribute faux maps that lead them in circles or back where they came from.

The maps were designed by a Tucson-based group, Humane Borders, which plans to hold a joint press conference today with the National Human Rights Commission in Mexico City to announce its strategy. The maps are the latest effort by activists to aid undocumented immigrants as they trek across the border...

This is from the story in the Arizona Republic today. Not only should this Mexican-government-sponsored invasion be treated as an act of war, but the idiots of Humane Borders should be treated as traitors.

Mining the United States. There needs to be no more evidence that the nativists have crossed over into the fever swamps.

We need to give similar maps showing the southern border to Mexico to the people in Central America. You know, so that they can migrate north into Mexico illegally.

The UN identifies them as "migrants". Economic migrants. We never signed on to the particular treaty that covers this, though.

I've always been a lead by example type of guy.
Maybe we could think of some soft on illegal immigration politicians we could demonstrate on?

The only answer to this problem is to build twin 15 foot steel fences with sensors. Then deploy the Guard as additional backup. Unless we build the fence another open border politician will withdraw protection from the border the first time a big business greases his palm.

Er, the American government is also sponsoring this invasion.
That makes it an act of treason.

Illegal aliens and legal send back $20 billion a year to Mexico. Its worth it to the Mexican government to see that more make it into America.

If government - judges, bureaucrats, politicians - won't obey the law, why should citizens? We're heading for anarchy.

On the other hand, we seem to be getting the "best and brightest" from mexico, at least as far as criminals go. According to Glenn Beck (which I haven't had the time to check out) 95% of all the arrest warrants for felony murder issued in LA county, California, have been for illegal aliens. That percentage isn't for outstanding warrants, but warrants issued!
