Soros-backed group offers app to help illegal aliens avoid deportation

What if an enterprising organization developed a smartphone app that would allow an individual to warn other drunk drivers in the area about that DUI checkpoint? There is not an app for that yet, but there is a new tool which helps illegal aliens avoid contact with Immigration and Customs Enforcements (ICE) agents.The open borders non-profit, United We Dream is responsible for Notifica, which boasts that it as the “first app to prepare you and your family against deportation.” But behind the 40,000-member “immigrant rights” group is the National Immigration Law Center and radical left-wing billionaire George Soros.United We Dream was launched in 2008 by NILC, which itself has received funding from Soros’s Open Society Foundations to help finance their legal advocacy for immigrants.According to the conservative legal group, Judicial Watch, NILC also received a series of grants from the Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs between fiscal years 2008 and 2010.According to government records obtained by Judicial Watch, NILC received at least $206,453 in grant money from the same agency whose mission they are actively obstructing.The Notifica website claims is simply lets users “get in touch quickly with the people you trust most” before or after an engagement with ICE, but United We Dream’s website speaks to the real goal – to hinder federal agents from enforcing U.S. immigration law.“The difference with Notifica is planning is in the hands of individuals, so if something does happen, they activate a network that is ready to support them, and we’re not dealing with the structural challenges of creating panic in immigrant communities by just deploying thousands of notifications that say, ‘Hey, ICE is outside,’” Adrian Reyna, an illegal immigrant who serves as United We Dream’s director of membership and technology strategies, told the Daily Dot.The group’s website, however, provides a more transparent recitation of their goals. It is to empower “local communities to defend their rights, stop unjust deportations, and combat the ongoing collaboration between local police and immigration authorities.”“We will no longer allow our communities to be daily targets of a racist and for-profit detention and deportation machine,” the United We Dream website continues.By alerting other illegal aliens to your last known location, the app is a tool to obstruct ICE from carrying out their mandated duty to enforce the law. Strip away the mask of technology and this app is essentially a phone version of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf – ready to tip off anyone in the area to the presence of ICE.
