'Pity' Leads Texas Rancher to Set Up Water Station at Border

A bright blue and flag hoisted several meters into the air marks the spot where undocumented immigrants crossing the border dividing Mexico and Texas can find jugs of water, loaded weekly into a large barrel labelled "agua." Lavoyger Durham fills the barrel on his ranch for those dehydrated after a 30-mile hike from a known drop-off point in Mexico. After finding two bodies on his property last week, he said he knows the "water station" is necessary. "I try to save their lives," Durham said, adding, "I've got compassion. I've got pity." http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/immigra...er-n149886

I would put up a fence, with a sign that said "turn around and return home" in Spanish and in Arabic. Then I would put the water station and something to give them shade so they can build their strength to go back home.

(Side note...."Arabic" because they are saying that the border crisis is allowing terrorists to come in among them.)

What was the immigration policy in 1780?
That's right, there was no national immigration law until 1870.

People are really dying from a 30 mile hike? Do they start off with NO water or something? Huh

Aren't we talking about Mexicans that are used to the heat? Either way, a 30 mile hike should not kill you unless you are elderly, or incredibly weak, or completely stupid. For one, you should bring water with you. Also, you should do most of the hiking when the sun is down and the temperatures are cooler. You should be able to cover 30 miles in a day and a half.
