A pair of emergency beacons have been placed in South Texas to help stranded illegal immigrants [aliens] as they try to head north from the border along a popular desert trail, the U.S. Border Patrol said...

The two-story tall red steel posts are solar powered, with mirrors affixed to make them more visible during the day and lit up at night, Lopez said.

The beacons have instructions in English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, the most popular language dialect in China.

Border Patrol officials have already placed 18 beacons in the desert in Arizona.
