Mexico cancels plan to give border maps to migrants
Monterey Herald/Associated Press ^ | January 26, 2006 | AP Wire

Posted on 01/26/2006 8:17:22 AM PST by DumpsterDiver

MEXICO CITY - Mexico will suspend its plan to distribute maps to migrants wanting to cross the U.S. border illegally, but an official said Thursday the decision was not made because of American pressure.

Miguel Angel Paredes, spokesman for the federal Human Rights Commission, said the decision was made because human rights officials in border states expressed concern that the maps would show anti-immigrant groups where migrants likely would gather.

On Wednesday, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the United States opposed the plan "in the strongest terms."

It doesn't matter if Mexico caved into American pressure, or HRW didn't want the MinuteMen standing over those watering holes. AS long as these illegals don't have a road map into our country, and there is the potential that at least SOME of these lawbreakers will not be able to make it over here, I'm happy with the outcome.

" the maps would show anti-immigrant groups where migrants likely would gather"

We already know that, anywhere south of the river here in Texas is a gathering point.

My guess is that Vicente Fox was told that we would stop all wire transfers of spondooliks to Mexico. It would have cost them billions.

I, for one, would stand there with a shotgun aimed at illegals' gut, telling them, "Turn your ass right around and go back!"

the decision was made because human rights officials in border states expressed concern that the maps would show anti-immigrant groups where migrants likely would gather.

Fortunately for the Minutemen, a copy of the map which showed where all the water stations are located was published on Free Republic yesterday.

Unless those human rights officials now move their water stations, it is public knowledge. Hiding them from the Minutemen would likely make it harder for the illegals to find them too.

This is just too stupid to believe!

I saw this map story on Fox yesterday. The map is very detailed with directions to water, emergency phone service, details as to how far a person should try to walk in a day, and where to contact churches for night.

I travel south Texas all the time, and I can show you many water stations, and phones located in areas that would amaze anyone.

Time for some non-Minutemen to help the Minutemen by taking care of the water holes. I would volunteer if I lived within 200 miles of the border.

Cherry bombs are a lot of fun in containers of water!!!

Minuteman Manhattan - shaken, not stirred:

Drop one emergency phone in one container of water. Light fuse on cherry bomb and drop into container with phone. Walk away 50 ft, turn head and wait for the mixing to start.

Is this the Mexican version of 'saving face'?

Yeah, Switch, that map. The dots are locations of illegal immigrant deaths, according to the article in our local paper.

I think just adding a couple of cups of Mexican tap water to the water tanks would do the trick.

I'd bet the farm that these maps get printed and handed out by some third party (at the Mexican governments request).

The org that wanted to distribute the maps is a legal US entity--who can be sued. Someone clued him in that if they encourage/enable/foment trespass on private property--they can get sued, "Intentional tort".

They already may find themselves in court. If I was a harassed rancher on the border dealing with this constant danger, I'd try to go after them.

That's the problem with being legal, as opposed to illegal. Y'got all these dang regulations, duties, responsibilities and liabilities. If you're illegal, you just ignore all that.

Unless said water stations are on private property, with the permission of the owners. If they are, there is nothing the Minutemen can do, or rather should do, because they would be committing one crime to prevent another. They would have to wait in areas that are public or where they have permission from the property owners.

The stars are rescue bacons where you just push a button to get help.

You are preaching to the choir, you need to make your voice heard by the party leadership. I wouldn't consider it racist though, more like it's economic.

Unfortunately, a lot of people/businesses favor illegals, and they put a lot more money into lobbying than you or I do.

That's interesting - so they mostly start out from Sasabe? Good place for Minutemen. And Three points is a 3.5 day journey?

Also nice to know where the water tanks are - shoot them low and the water just drains out.

I am surprised the water stations are not vanalized or simply stolen or just plain made useless.

A simple water leak makes it useless to all. How hard can it be to drill a few holes?

Me thinks Mehico is starting to get the message. There are people cruel and fed up enough to put anti-freeze in the emergency aid stations. If the Mezicans have the map so do these people.

As of late Vincente is squealing like a scalded hog. He knows the border gig is just about up and chances are the Mexican peons (if history is followed) are going to come after his and some of his co-horts heads. His over-pressure valve is starting to malfunction. Let us see what happens in the next couple of months. The ball is in the Senate. Get after them!!! Just do it!!!

Hmmmmmmm!


I have heard many of these illegal aliens are constipated -

A sensitive humanitarian gesture would be to add prune juice & Ex-Lax to those water tanks -

That should help them "go" across the desert -

--

Only a few would be needed to add confidence to "travelers" who could play "pot-luck" at each wate tank

--

Then again - perhaps some corn mash, mo-lasses, & sugar added to those thanks would provide some nutrition and a happy feeling of "wellness" -

Any cattle or coyotes would love the liquid refreshment -

I'm sure the BATF would then be glad to help them (and the US pro-illegal alien groups) to good shelters -

--

An elegant solution for all involved.....

--

Now let's see......

What were those harmless chemicals we used to add to liquids that turned urine blue?

Then a few days later we added something that turned it red......

--

If on any private property I would think a border area rancher/farmer/sportsman would enjoy giving his cattle, horses, and wild game an interesting, harmless, and colorful diversion.....

Land owners could even set up "water tanks" for their cattle, horses, wild game (I love wild animals - often with a fine adult beverage) on their own private property using the same "template/designs" already provided by those pro-illegal alien groups

Add a bit of "mo-lasses" & sugar for nutrition

PETA & ALF would approve I am sure

--

Actually our Brahma steers in South Florida loved a mixture of mo-lasses and water - It satisfied their thirst and gave them needed nutrition....

.... and it fattened them up for the biggest day of their lives

Our area County Agent was impressed that my brother and I were raising and feeding out cattle for (private freezer $ale$) while in HS/FFA (college money) - while the wealthy big area ranchers (Hawkins, Lyons, Blount, etc.) close to our land could hardly keep their cattle on pasture grass and some dry feed.

My older brother was the one who figured out the multi-feed formulas - always mixed by hand daily with more molasses - a gooey chore to be sure!

Citrus pulp, beet pulp; corn, oats, millet, cottonseed meal, mo-lasses, etc. -

--

A "prime solution" indeed -
