Invasion Part II?

The Mexican government starts handing out maps of southern Arizona to help cut down on the number of deaths among illegal border crossers, The Associated Pres reports:
[Mexican o]fficials 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.

The Arizona Republic says a Tucson-based human rights group designed the maps, which include tips on surviving in the desert.

This pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter:
Arizona Rep. Jim Kolbe, a Republican, said he supports the maps as a way of saving lives. But the best way of keeping migrants from dying in the desert is by helping Mexico create jobs and reforming U.S. laws to better manage migration, he said.

The mexican gubmint, more corrupt and inefficient than ever, has no intentions to "create" jobs nor keep any of its poor peasants on their side of the border. This from a country that jealously protects its "sovereignty" . Their intentions are to literally throw out their poor , huddled masses onto the backs of the US taxpayers to bail them out. This from a country rich in oil reserves but doesn;t have the wherewithawl to make these oil reserves profitable for them and their socialist agendas . Now they encourage the "army" to escort drug shipments for the cartels and then blame the drug traffickers. RRight! Here in the valley , are our own "politicians" , who pander to the drug dealers and the mexican gubmint to blast and undermine the efforts of the USA to undermine drug trafficking and alien smuggling. With friends like there...
