Blind

We've been deluged with reaction to the news about our collaboration with Mexico's Human Rights Commission. And no wonder. Stateside, the AP story about the press conference in Mexico city portrayed our work as an effort to help migrants to sneak across the border. Nowhere in the story did the reporter mention the fact that the warning posters show the real walking time through the desert. The whole point of the posters -- to show would-be migrants the reality of the situation rather than the lies whispered in their ears from smugglers -- was passed by.
