American college prof develops cell-phone tool to help illegals cross border


Illegal aliens crossing the U.S.-Mexico border now have a cell-phone tool to chart the best route, find food and locate people who will help them enter the country – courtesy of a professor at a state-funded university.

Ricardo Dominguez, a University of California, San Diego tenured visual arts professor and activist, designed the Transborder Immigrant Tool, an application much like a global-positioning system used in cars, to help illegals find the best locations for food, water and groups to assist them as they sneak into America.

Dominguez is also co-founder of the Electronic Disturbance Theater, or EDT, a group that developed virtual-sit-in technologies in 1998 in solidarity with the Zapatista communities in Chiapas, Mexico. He also helped set up a website-jamming network called the FloodNet system to attack official sites of the U.S. Border Patrol, White House, G8, Mexican embassy and others.

"It allowed anyone with Internet access to overload the websites of several governmental entities," he told Vice Magazine.

Dominguez also called for a three-day virtual sit-in on the Minuteman Project website in 2005, targeting it with denial-of-service attacks, according to an account in "Tactical Media."

Dominguez said his research lab at the California Institute for Telecommunications & Information Technology, or CALIT2, on the UCSD campus is called BANG Lab, which stands for Bits, Atoms, Neurons and Genes. He said he's been focusing on developing "border-disturbance technologies."

To create the Transborder Immigrant Tool, Dominguez used a Motorola i455 cell phone, which includes a free GPS applet.

"We were able to crack it and create a simple compass-like navigation system," he explained. "We were also able to add other information, like where to find water left by the Border Angels, where to find Quaker help centers that will wrap your feet, how far you are from the highway – things to make the application really benefit individuals who are crossing the border."
Dominguez told the North County Times, "The primary goal of the tool is to offer those crossing a way not to die."

But Jim Gilchrist, founder and president of the Minuteman Project, told WND the tool goes a step further.

"It helps illegals avoid all of the Border Patrol hot spots," he said. "It helps them to illegally infiltrate the United States."
Gilchrist said Dominguez is aiding and abetting people who break the law.
"What he's doing is not developing something to put in a cell phone to summon 9-1-1 in case they're stuck in the desert and in trouble and they need help," he said. "He's providing them a detailed, mapped pathway into the United States so illegals can bring in their drugs, anchor babies, illegal alien cargo, armaments and anyone who wants to come into the United States, regardless of our rule of law. That's what this professor is doing. He should be indicted."
He continued, "This is serious. What is next? Someone using that to get someone in the United States to kill a member of law enforcement or a bunch of kids at an elementary school in the name of some god or some culture from the anti-American mantra? Who knows what the consequences could be?"

Wild Thing's comment........

IMO this man is a criminal and he is breaking the law. Put him in JAIL! Why does Ricardo Dominguez still have a job at a public US University? I am so sick of this mentality that says it is OK, like how Bill Ayers is also a teacher. GRRRRRRR His tools could also be used by terrorists!

And the department not only pays him to make illegal immigration easier, but brags about it:

Check this out!

I note with sadness, the death of "Aiding and abetting a criminal", as well as the death of the charges of Treason and Sedition; deaths that will surely help to kill the America that WE built.
Political Correctness has driven itself to the marrow of American people. They are now to damned pussified to stand up for the country that our Parents handed us.
GOD bless America and GOD save the Americans.

Just what we need GPS navigation for Illegals. But on the bright side the Border Patrol can hone right in on the perps. too.

On a lighter side or maybe serious side, I was filling up the monster, 75 dollars per tank and swearing at the pump. When I heard a voice say, 'when we were growing up gas was 4 gallons for a buck'. I looked and it was a Pennsylvania, Ranger, they are out and about because of errant Bears and it is deer season. Then he said, 'we got to take our country back. Then mentioned the taking the Bible out of schools, the pledge, and the Monument in California being contested by the (aclu), then he started on the National debt and how big the deficit was, all because of that" F'n N... in the white House", I couldn't get a word in edgewise, which in itself is astounding, so I just shook his hand and said 'I'm with you, keep buying Ammo.'

Most importantly he works for the government of Pennsylvania and he is furious, like the rest of us. It's good to see we have support and it is growing everyday.

Thanks WT and Mark. Here is food for thought under the Public Option.

Yesterday in excess of 20,000 attended memorial services for 4 downed police officers nearby. Thar alone tells me they are fed up with the bullshit too.
I was recently asked about 'oathtakers' my reply was yes, they exist, some of us live that oath every day, but don't rely on that solely, too many have been ingrained and indoctrinated to take orders and obey without question, those are the ones that scare me. Don't believe it? Look to you left then to your right, who voted to put this monster into power? Look no farther than Congress, the SEIU, Acorn or Rahm Emanuel for graphic examples!!!
Buy ammo, even if it doesn't fit, you can always barter.

Guys, it is good to hear that more and more people are getting fed up. I think that shows in the guns and ammo sales since obama became prez.

Academia, as much as any other source, is an enemy of The Constitution. Academics like Ricardo Dominguez teach young impressionable people that America is an amoral country. Lots of these academics also serve in organizations that want to bring down America. America's leadership is either weak or corrupt and these communists in the universities and public schools get away with their Marxist teachings and illegal activities.

At times I want to say just blow off the Middle East. Bring our troops home, secure our borders, drill oil in our own country and be willing to use our big bombs to deter aggression.

Frankly, ditto all of that.

Mark, wow thank you for sharing about that!!!

Jack, thanks for the link to the video.
Great response when you were asked that.

Tom, I feel like that too sometimes.
