Finally, the Feds are investigating a university professor who developed a cell phone to assist illegal border crossers. Not only did he use taxpayer funds to develop his tool, his salary is also paid by taxpayers. The professor arrogantly dismissed the probe as a witch hunt. According to legislators, he and others may have committed a federal felony.

I remember this story and it raised my eyebrows Typical for illegal aliens advocates to dismiss a FEDERAL INVESTIGATION and claim some type of discrimination.

Fire him or gank his tenure. This is equivalent to driving a get away car in a heist.

Maybe even some good old fashioned jail time and fines.

... cell phones are not left out of the picture, especially as carriers see the increasing value of GPS functionality on handsets. In fact, all of the major U.S. carriers now offer some kind of location-based service. For example, Verizon Wireless offers VZ Navigator, while TeleNav GPS Navigator has working relationships with AT&,T, Sprint (Sprint Nextel also offers the Trimble GPS Pack for geocachers and outdoor enthusiasts), and T-Mobile. With these services, you can receive turn-by-turn driving directions and color maps; you can search for local businesses; and in some cases, you can receive traffic updates right on your phone...

“We would say there’s more important things to be spending money on, like good science and math studies, as opposed to a GPS tool that could help illegal immigrants, terrorists, criminals and drug runners cross the border illegally,” Hunter said in an interview yesterday. He said he has not received a response from the chancellor, but hopes the project will be halted.
Idiot Professor needs to be removed. His Activist priorities clearly cloud his academic responsibilities.

Like I said it's always government employee's who collect a paycheck from taxpayers.
They are completely out of touch with those of us forced to foot the bill.

We are all familiar with GPS navigation. Heck, most of us have them in our cars. I can’t speak for anyone else, but my system is designed to give driving directions, and locations of restaurants and other points of interest. It certainly wasn’t designed to assist in circumventing laws.

This professor designed a system specifically to assist illegal border crossers. Until Apple, AT&T, Sprint, et al. develop cell phones specifically to assist in the commission of crimes, your post has no relevance to the topic of this thread.

Another liberal university professor helping people break are laws because of there extreme activist views and using hard earned tax payer money to do it. With the current administration I doubt he will even be charged with anything. Just another message to all the pro-illegal alien supporters that this type of criminal behavior is acceptable.

We really need a "check box" so we can determine who our tax dollars go to.

Now with the rise of multiple distributed geospatial information systems (such as the Goggle Earth Project for example), GPS (Global Positioning System) and the developing Virtual Hiker Algorithm by artist Brett Stalbaum it is now possible to develop useful Transborder Tools for Immigrants – and allow virtual geography to mark new trails and potentially safer routes across this desert of the real.

Its already availible...If I take it and do something illegal dosent make the technology illegal.
