The Red Cross is Providing Maps to Illegals Showing Them How to Effectively Cross the Border Into the United States
The Daily Caller News Foundation has obtained maps and other information guides produced by the American Red Cross which contain instructions on how illegal migrants attempting to cross into the United States can do so safely and without getting caught.
According to Daily Caller reporter Jennie Taer, the map which is “part of a packet stamped with the International Committee of the Red Cross and American Red Cross logos, shows a list of resources, including hotels, clinics and shelters where migrants can get support in Mexico and Central America.”
Additionally, other parts of the map also show defined paths which take the travelers directly to cities along the U.S./Mexican border. Some of the routes listed take the illegals directly to El Paso, Texas; Nogales, Arizona; and McAllen, Texas.
Going a step further into encouraging this illegal and dangerous move, the packet also provides a guide to “self care” which has instructions and advice on how to survive the desert and various diseases one is most likely to contract, as well as how to “safely jump on trains,” and “how to obtain contraceptives.”
Ironically, these are the products of taxpayer dollars, since the U.S. government directly funds Red Cross efforts upwards of millions of dollars into dealing with illegal migrants within our country.

The American Red Cross not only seems to be very blatantly helping facilitate the travel of illegal migrants into the country, but they do so at the same time collecting millions in tax payer funds to provide aid to those same migrants once they are inside our borders.
The non-profit organization is a member of the board of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Food and Shelter Program, where they received $350 million alone from the Department of Homeland Security in February of this year alone. Part of their mission is to provide resources to support migrants who have been captured illegally entering the United States and await processing for their court date.
This discovery comes at a time when the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reported an overwhelming rise in the number of illegals breaking into the country from the Mexican border. Federal authorities in 2022 reportedly encountered roughly 2.3 million illegals.

Making the Situation Worse
By encouraging illegal entry into the United States, the Red Cross is only making an already dangerous situation way worse.
According to Taer, “Many migrants from countries beyond Central America travel through Panama’s Darien Gap, where Panamanian authorities say there have been 50 known migrant deaths in 2022.”
The Wall Street Journal also reported that between May through September of 2021, 180 rape cases were identified as well at the Darien Gap.
Despite this, the Red Cross has provided their own solution for handling the potential sexual assaults and rapes that may occur— advice on where to find contraceptives.
“If you use contraceptives methods, don’t forget to bring them with you,” the self-care document states. “In necessary cases, some Red Cross’ clinics and medical brigades will give them to you for free.”
Being raped and dying in the desert is already scary, but hopping onto a train is a different level of hard, however, the Red Cross guide has that covered too with instructions on how to jump on a cargo train traveling north.
“In the desert during the day, temperatures are extreme. Seek to bring with you lots of potable water, pants and long sleeves to protect you from the sun and maintain the sweat humidity. Also take with you warm clothes, gloves to protect your hands and a flashlight and matches,” says the guides.
“Traveling seated (on trains) is the most recommended. Be careful on your trip, there are branches, electric cables, tunnels that can hit you. Accommodate yourself where you have supporting points.”
The International Committee of the Red Cross did not deny providing the maps and guides when contacted by the Daily Caller, in fact they doubled down.
“Every day around the world, people make the difficult decision to leave their homes and their counties in pursuit of a safer place to live and hope for a better future. Families migrate for different reasons, such as conflict, violence, natural disasters, or other reasons. The international Committee of the Red Cross, as part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, does not prevent nor does it encourage migration. We aim to help prevent and mitigate the humanitarian consequences that migration can bring – including separation and loss of family contacts, disappearances, serious medical issues and even death,” said a representative for the International Committee of the Red Cross to the Daily Caller.
“Our approach to migrants is strictly humanitarian. We provide information about ways to reduce risk and where to find lifesaving assistance in Mexico and Central America,” they continued. “It is essential to prevent the loss of lives and to promote a humanitarian approach. Addressing the needs of this vulnerable population is a shared responsibility, of the authorities in the countries of origin, transit and destination, and of the international community.”
