'Smuggle Truck: Operation Immigration' iPhone App Draws Outrage
Fox News Latino ^ | February 07, 2011 | Bryan Llenas

Want to smuggle immigrants across the border?

Well, there's an app for that.

It's a game called "Smuggle Truck: Operation Immigration" and it's causing outrage. Developed by a Boston-based tech company, the game allows users to drive a truck full of immigrants across the U.S.-Mexican border and through the desert, all the while trying to keep the human cargo from falling off. Scores are calculated by the number of immigrants helped crossing the border.

The most careful drivers are awarded a "Green Card" for saving passengers' lives. On the other hand, the "Smugglers Run" award goes to “pedal-to-the-medal reckless speed-run driving, with a minimum of one safe passenger.”

They'll take us for all they can get They KNOW they're here illegally, but with government support for their criminal behavior, there's an ever-increasing entitlement attitude.

Undocumented worker who became quadriplegic is moved to Mexico against his will

Snips: His abrupt departure, which Ojeda says was undertaken without his consent, outraged a group of Mexicans living in Chicago who had rallied to his aid, tending to him in the hospital and encouraging him not to give up.

Advocate Christ spent about $650,000 on Ojeda's medical care and another $60,000 to transport him to Mexico after several private long-term care facilities refused to take the young man as a patient, Golson said.

"We saved his life and brought him to a stable condition," but when it became clear that Ojeda needed a lifetime of care, it seemed best to return him close to family, she said.

Where would you seriously want me to take you? I have a nice car, so you’d be comfortable, and your whole family would fit in it too. It’s a killer whale (1996 Chevy Impala) with about 22,000 miles on it. (not a typo — 22,000)

“Outrage? Really?”

Agree, they don’t seem to have a problem with it in real life - but make a game out of it and they get OUTRAGED!!

Anyone notice a peculiarity in the article?

...the game allows users to drive a truck full of immigrants across the U.S.-Mexican border and through the desert, all the while trying to keep the human cargo from falling off. Scores are calculated by the number of immigrants helped crossing the border.

Is there a certain qualifier or adjective missing from "immigrants"?
