The U.S. federal government now posts Mandarin Chinese instructions on some “rescue stations” that it places on the Southern border to help illegal immigrants with their medical emergencies.

“If you need help push the red button. Help will arrive. Do not leave the area” reads the instructions on a government rescue station tower in Falfurrias, Texas. Photographs of the tower were obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller from filmmaker Chris Burgard, who took them in July. Burgard, who previously highlighted illegal Chinese traffic over the Southern border, is working on a sequel to his 2009 documentary “Border.

The instructions are written in English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. The tower has the message “Property of U.S. Government” painted on it, and features a button for illegals to call Border Patrol, which is overseen by the Department of Homeland Security. Ranchers confirmed to Burgard that the rescue towers were erected by the federal government.
