Check out the Transborder Immigrant Tool. Here’s an article about it:

By augmenting a low-cost Motorola phone with GPS and a battery of applications, Dominguez’s goal is to help illegal immigrants complete safe border crossings without being sent back by the Border Patrol or getting shot in the face by American “patriots.” The primary goal of the Transborder Immigrant Tool is to increase safety during border crossing by directing heavy-footed immigrants to safe routes, shelter, food, water, and friendly sympathizers.

… and here’s the blog of the project itself. (via Jamie K.)

Also, Filip Spagnoli emailed to tell me about his Human Rights Blog, which, among other things contains some really cool maps of immigration patterns. I’m adding it to the blogroll.
