More than 8,000 people have pre-registered to download Notifica free.
President Donald Trump’s immigration policy has led to the creation of a new request to people to warn of immigration raids by the U.S. authorities.
The new mobile app, called Notifica, will ensure that undocumented migrants have to inform family members, friends and lawyers if they are victims of immigration raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

App creator Adrian Reyna, who is the director of digital strategies for the pro-immigrant organization United We Dream, told EFE that after Trump’s executive order on immigration, he and others thought that it would be a good idea to provide the community with a tool of this kind.
The app will be available for iOS and Android starting on April 10 and will allow users to select from a series of telephone contacts to be notified immediately if they are arrested, Reyna explained.
With the help of Notifica, you can select multiple contacts at the same time, with different personal and pre-set messages, sending different messages to, for example, a family, the lawyer, the boss or the children of the head of the school.

All messages will be sent simultaneously with the touch of a button, and are deleted as soon as they are opened, using a technique similar to Snapchat.
Reyna emphasized the need for undocumented families to make contingency plans before they are deported, especially if there are children involved.

Although the technology is not stop deportations, it will help families who become the target of the authorities to know when to carry out their prearranged plan for such a case, said Reyna, whose parents are undocumented.
So, the problem is a “personal” one for him, I had witnessed several deportations under his family members and friends.
More than 8,000 people have already registered will be able to download Notifica free in April, Reyna said.
