Are you currently in the U.S. illegally and fearing deportation? Now, there’s an app made just for you.
According to a new report, several apps and tools have been created to help illegal aliens avoid deportation and receive “moral support” without compromising their privacy.
Below are summaries of five apps designed specifically for illegal aliens:
Notifica hasn’t launched yet, but there are more than 7,000 people on its waiting list because the app could help illegal aliens send customized, encrypted messages to up to 15 personal contacts if they’re caught in an ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) raid.
“Notifica is an app that gives people control of their own destiny,” said founder Adrian Reyna, himself an illegal alien. “I want to do everything in my power to make sure that individuals aren’t afraid and they are able to live a life with [the] dignity and respect that they deserve.”
Arrived is being touted as a “hub for immigration resources.” This app is designed to show “the latest immigration news and educates users on the deportation process. It also offers English lessons, answers popular queries like ‘how to write a resume’ and offers a map with every non-governmental organization, law clinic and sanctuary city in the United States.”
Created by two full-time Googlers, William McLaughlin and Eduardo Gaitan, the app’s news feed gives analyses of legal actions regarding immigrants.
“There is a widespread, resounding, deafening silence in the tech community for the undocumented immigrants, and we’re just trying to fill that void,” said McLaughlin.
Planning a global launch this summer, Tarjimly is “a Facebook messenger bot that connects a community of 2,000 volunteer translators with immigrants and refugees in real time.”
According to co-founder Atif Javed, “Technology must help us stick together in Trump’s America and eliminate the fear we have of suffering people.”
Next, it wasn’t specifically designed for illegals, but the app Cell 411 offers new features for illegals to get in touch with friends and family when ICE knocks on the door.
“I’m an immigrant myself,” said founder and CEO Virgil Vaduva. “I remember when my visa expired and how terrifying it was.”
Finally, it hasn’t been released yet, but RedadAlertas is supposed to give users “verified and crowdsourced data on ICE raids, checkpoints or other confrontations happening nearby.”
The app was designed by Celso Mireles, a former illegal alien and tech. activist. Verified raids will cause the app to send alerts to users who are located within a 10- to 20- mile radius. Community organizers, journalists, and activists will also be notified by RedadAlertas so that they can lend a helping hand to illegals.
