The American Red Cross has been caught providing maps and guides to migrants who want to cross the US border illegally.
Red Cross Packets for Illegals
The Daily Caller News Foundation exclusively obtained documents revealing that the non-profit American Red Cross provides maps and guides to migrants making the perilous journey to the U.S.-Mexico border.
In the packet stamped with logos of the International Committee of the Red Cross and American Red Cross, a map is included that lists resources like hotels, clinics, and shelters where migrants can receive assistance in Mexico and Central America.
The maps feature distinct lines leading to cities on the U.S. border, and the organization offers a self-care guide with tips on surviving the journey, including safe train jumping, disease prevention, desert survival, and contraceptive access.
The U.S. government has tasked the American Red Cross, whose logo appears on the migrant guide south of the border, with distributing millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to assist illegal migrants released into the country.
Illegal Immigrants Helped Across Border From American Non-Profit
The American Red Cross is a member of the board of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Food and Shelter Program, responsible for distributing funds to non-governmental organizations supporting illegal migrants.
In February, the DHS allocated $350 million to the FEMA program, and the American Red Cross is among the NGOs tasked with allocating some of the funds to support migrants after they cross the southern border and processed with court dates.
The Red Cross assists illegal migrants in the U.S., and aids migrants on their journeys far south of the border.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has reported a surge in illegal migration at the southern border, with more than 2.3 million migrants encountered in fiscal year 2022 and over 870,000 from October to January.
The United Nations (UN) recorded 7,000 migrant deaths between 2014 and 2022 in the Americas, 4,694 of whom were heading to the U.S. There were also 4,000 migrant deaths recorded in the U.S. during that same time period.
The Red Cross Maps
The map provided showed routes to popular border cities in the U.S., which includes El Paso, Texas; Nogales, Arizona, and McAllen, Texas.
The guides appear to acknowledge that the journey to the U.S. for migrants is dangerous. It also provides migrants with the tools to encounter deadly and treacherous situations, including providing contraceptives.
“If you use contraceptives methods, don’t forget to bring them with you. In necessary cases, some Red Cross’ clinics and medical brigades will give them to you for free,” the self care document states.
The document also provides guidance on navigating the desert and jumping on top of cargo trains, which are known as “La Bestia,” or “the beast,” that transits north through Mexico.
“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,” the guide states.
The International Committee of the Red Cross did not dispute the documents when reached for comment.
