These menus include info about the Border Patrol, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, as well as local police. The app was created by a 21 year-old undocumented immigrant, Deyvid Morales, with help from Subsplash.
According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Morales created the app after a personal experience with immigration officials. When he was detained by the Border Patrol in June of last year after being stopped and searched on a bus, he told people in English and Spanish on the bus what their rights were.
Then he got to thinking:
“I can’t be in every bus telling them their rights, but I could make something that would be like if I was in the bus and telling them what their rights were. So I thought of an app.”
