Emergency Migrant Beacon

Emergency Migrant Beacon

The small red dot far off on the horizon is an emergency beacon. It flashes off and on all night long to signal where to go for help if people stranded in the desert. However these beacons are monitored by seismic sensors and motion activated cameras which are searching for migrants activity. Once a migrant goes to the beacon Border Patrol arrives arresting migrants seeking water or help.
