did Mexico give maps to migrants?

Remember when this was all over the news back in January? Remember the outrage?

Well, it turns out that the infamous maps were actually created by Humane Borders which made the maps to warn migrants of the dangers and to discourage them from making the trip. The signs say clearly, "Don't go! "There isn't enough water! It's not worth it!" The red dots indicate where other migrants have died attempting to cross the desert.

The Mexican government did indeed do some printing and distribution, but with the same goal -- to discourage migration and save lives. Not exactly the spin the media gave it, huh? More details.
