Voice: Immigrant survivor kits won't really help

May 26, 2001

Anyone can see the survivor kits are a hoax, probably perpetrated by a foreigner-hater.

Two immediate things are needed to cross the desert — water and the absence of extreme heat. To cross the mountains, water and the absence of extreme heat and cold are needed.

The survivor kit does not satisfy those needs. All the items on the survivor kits are born from sarcasm in an attempt to embarrass the Mexican government and make it appear stupid. Perhaps the perpetrator is a Mexican-hater.

Walter Tylenda should know in his diarrhea of words that the All-American Canal is not the border. The undocumented have already broken the law of illegal entry when they enter the All-American Canal. No one is aiding illegal entry at the canal because it was broken at the border, dummy. The Border Patrol saves lives because humans save lives in distress. It is not wrong to save a human life in distress!
