Helping Illegals

Leaders of two faith-based groups, No More Deaths and Samaritan Patrol, claims to have signed up hundreds of volunteers to deliver food, water and medical aid to migrants illegally jumping our borders by walking into the country from Mexico. No More Deaths alone has 500 registered volunteers, up from 300 last summer.

A third group, Humane Borders, puts water tanks on or near routes typically traveled by illegal migrants.

The groups are trying to reach an agreement with the U.S. Border Patrol spelling out legal ways they can provide humanitarian aid to illegal migrants.

No matter what these so-called "faith-based" groups claim, it still sounds like aiding and abetting law-breakers to me, still a prosecutable crime in the United States.

If these goody-two-shoes want to help save the lives of ignorant and foolish Mexicans, I suggest a better method is to buy Mexican radio time and Mexican newspaper ads and warn these reconquista foot soldiers that entering the United States by sneaking across the border in the middle of the Arizona desert is dangerous and often deadly and can result in the death of themselves... And their children.

Encouraging Mexicans by advertising that they might find stashes of food and water in the middle of a proven death zone ought to be a crime.

These "faith-based" groups should be told that encouraging people to go into harms way is in fact... morally reprehensible.
