Want to know the rights entitled to undocumented immigrants? There’s an app for that.
With apps for everything from finding a date to 3-D maps, it seemed inevitable, if perhaps a bit unusual, that apps would start popping up that deal with immigrant rights.
One of the latest on this growing list – which includes everything from border crossing times to answers in the U.S. citizenship test – is “Derechos humanos”- an app that gives information on the rights of immigrants in both Spanish and English.
The apps’ creator, Deyvd Morales, was inspired by his own experience with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
In the country without any documents, Morales was arrested and detained by the U.S. Border Patrol in June of last year.
