Humane Borders




Having roots, I think, in the Sanctuary Movement, Humane Borders is a group of conscientious, concerned, and religiously motivated people who provide warnings and water for those who are crossing the border illegally.

Illegal immigrants cross the border in the same general areas as do smugglers, and Tucson is ground zero. The red dots on the map to the left indicate the locations of the bodies of illegals found in the desert. The map is a warning to those who are contemplating the long, three day walk (on the map, in Spanish: "Tres Dias Caminando") through the desert to civilization (i.e., Tucson).
