WESLACO – New flags are flying above water stations placed in rural areas all throughout the Rio Grande Valley.

The South Texas Human Rights Center sets up blue barrels holding water on roads and ranches for people who walk through the brush trying to avoid the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint.

A white flag with a red cross fly above the barrels so they’re easier to find.

But the American Red Cross sent the non-profit group a cease and desist letter warning the group is infringing on copyright laws.

We’re told the flags will now be red with a blue stripe.
