Pima County, Humane Borders mapping migrant deaths

Each year, hundreds of people go missing in the Sonoran Desert and many are never identified. Since 2001, of the nearly 2,100 remains found in the desert, about 700 remain unidentified. A new search tool available to the public will combine data sets to help name the dead.

Only an idiot would put out a saucer of milk and then wonder why cats kept showing up on his back porch.

Don’t come, don’t die. There are few concepts in the world I can think of that are as simple as this one.

Another thought…I can’t recall reading a single time where a LEGAL immigrant died crossing the desert. Just sayin’

Here I thought they were human beings and not stray cats.

My mistake.

@Ted Prezelski

Well, sure, that’s an excellent point. Cats are more primal and we really can’t expect them to be able to read warning signs and follow laws. Humans we should be holding to a higher standard. So, perhaps the mistake is mine.
