Hola all once again,

We the Chicana Coyotek Gangs (CCG),
we used to be known as
Electronic Disturbance Theater/bang.lab.

What is your vote on our new name?

Speaking of votes.

CCG would like you to SWARM the VOTE TODAY.

How can I do that you ask and what am I voting for?

Here is the scoop - a new news story has popped-up at the OCR:

November 20, 2009 9:26 AM
GPS tool will help immigrants cross border
BY CINDY CARCAMO
The Orange County Register
http://www.ocregister.com/news/border-220422-people-desert.html

Lots of angry folks clicking in and voting on the poll:

Transborder Immigrant Tool:
Does this tool pose a threat to national security?
Yes 80 %
No 19 %
Not sure 2 %
Total Votes: 171

(Found on the bottom right of the article page).

Which was a Viral Bounce from this interview:

FOLLOW THE GPS, ÉSE
THE TRANSBORDER IMMIGRANT TOOL HELPS MEXICANS CROSS OVER SAFELY
(It has lots of mistakes, that should be fixed soon).
http://www.viceland.com/int/v16n11/htdocs/follow-the-gps-225.php

Now You - YES YOU! can go by and click "NO!"
and make Chicana Coyotek Gangs (CCG) even richer than we are already are!

So go now and do not hesitate. CLICK=ACTION!

Abrazos grandes,

>From Chicana Coyotek Gangs (formally known as EDT/bang.lab)

P.S. Recent review by David Ronfeldt from the RAND about the Transborder
Immigrant Tool:

"fascinating. what an innovative twist."

Comment:
It's disgusting that a group such as this exists to circumvent U.S.
law. Perhaps an investigation should be initiated to determine if they
can be charged with Conspiracy/Aiding and Abetting the Illegal Entry
of Aliens (18 USC 2/8 USC 1325).
