Placing water bottles out in the desert is not only a crime but it also sends out the message that the illegals may be able to survive physically because someone is going to assist when entering illegally.

If these religious dimwits have the money and effort to transport and litter water containers in the desert why can't they divert that effort and money to directly assist the towns and cities where the illegals come from?
You still didn't tell me how much money these people are spending to provide water for the illegal immigrants. It takes a lot more than a few bucks to improve the infrastructure of a town or a city.

Don't you so called "anti-illegals" complain when the U.S gov't tries to do that?

FYI: we owe Mexico nothing; that nation needs to grow up and accept responsibility for its poorest, 'brownest' citizens.

Its per capita income is the same as Argentina yet the latter Hispanic nation seems to have a much more even distribution of wealth--------maybe because it is 97% White?

Whatever the amount is, I'm certain that most poor Mexicans and Central Americans would be grateful to receive any amount of money (and manpower) that is provided.

No More Deaths certainly should have a few hundred dollars if it's capable of purchasing and transporting the following equipment (none of which I'm certain is cheap):

Goodness me, I didn't know people could be so evil as to say that providing water for these people (and yes, criminal or not, they are PEOPLE). Pretty shameful.

And for the record, I HAVE done work to improve the infrastructure of Mexico and am surely going to do more once I've completely my education and have the financial means to go back to the communities I have lived in within Mexico. I also do not question the legal status of the immigrants who I teach English and Spanish literacy. If I lived remotely near the border, I'd be out there with water every day, fines be damned. If this country is fining people for providing simple human comfort to fellow man then it's absolutely not one worth fighting for.

This thread certainly makes it hard to feel proud to be an American. I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to die of thirst in the desert, regardless of why they were there.

What is with you and your obsession with race?

I'm not condoning anything here, except for the cessation of human suffering.
What's the problem with water.

I guess I'm just glad to be buddhist where we hold all people the same, instead of the people on this thread who wish for the death of another human.

I just boggle, some of you, not the poster I'm responding to, are all for the "right-to-life" until birth, or until you're what I want you to be.

There are ways to return people to their own countries, wishing them death is not the best or christer way.

I feel sorry for people jumping off of burning buildings not people committing suicide. It's called a choice, do you know the difference?
