How about the illegal immigrants just use the cellphone to call a nice border guard for assistance if they're going to die of thirst?
>> This application would theoretically be used to help those in need find such basic rations until they could be sent back to Mexico
They're not going to be sent back to Mexico, if they have an app that allows them to find sustenance without turning themselves in.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
What I want is an application for my cell phone that leads me to where I might find sustenance in my house. Sometimes, see, a half-finished box of Little Debby's will slip behind the sofa, and if I forget where it is, I have to go across the street to get another. Or you might use it to find which pizza box still has a slice left when you wake up at 4 PM two days after throwing a party. Or if there are any Oreos in the sofa cushion cracks that aren't too gunked up. You know, useful stuff for the average American.

Applications that save people's lives are welcome as a counterweight to man's all too well-known and well-documented inhumanity to man - homo homini lupus est hasn't changed for the better since Roman times, so why do we blame the wolves ?...
this is probably just going to give more people the confidence to try to make the trip and end causing more people to die. There's a lot of dangerous stuff out there. Snakes, spiders, wild animals. I have a feeling this app will cause more harm than good.

At the very least, it'll give Glenn Beck one more thing to whinge about. (Or will he like it? Hard to tell with that pigeon; probably both, depending on what pills he's taking.)
