Oh lookie, the Red Cross is giving immigrants detailed maps showing them where to cross the border into the United States

Well, it doesn't get much more obvious than this.

The American Red Cross has maps and guides for migrants to make the dangerous journeys to the U.S.-Mexico border, according to documents exclusively obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

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. The maps include clearly defined lines leading to cities along the U.S. border.

Now, nominally you could argue that the map isn't facilitating illegal immigration; rather, it just shows migrants the points where they can gain legal, above-the-board entry into the U.S.

But, I mean, come on. What do we think this detailed, routed, resource-intensive map is actually for?

And it's not like the Red Cross is free from association with illegal immigration already:

The U.S. government tasks the American Red Cross, whose logo is on the guide for migrants south of the border, with allocating millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to support illegal migrants released into the country.

The American Red Cross sits on the board of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Food and Shelter Program and is tasked with allocating funding to nongovernmental groups supporting the illegal migrants. The FEMA program received $350 million from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in February; the American Red Cross is tasked, along with other NGOs, with allocating some of those funds to support migrants after they've crossed the southern border and are processed with a court date.

So let me get this straight: The federal government lets the Red Cross control millions of dollars throughout the country in order to manage illegal immigration here, while the Red Cross is meanwhile busy distributing maps to immigrants south of the border showing them just the precise routes to take to get here?

Sounds like this is a question of...

You should probably be considering what kind of money you may or may not want to give to the Red Cross, too.
