US Issues Travel Warnings For 4th Of July Weekend- To Illegals

One million in tax money being spent on ads for Central American families

7.2.2014 | News | Albert Merrick

While federal officials are calling for enhanced security at international airports with direct flights to the U.S. this weekend, government officials are also warning about the dangers of traveling to the country by taking out ads targeting potential illegal immigrants. According to the AP, the U.S. government has launched a $1 million ad campaign targeting Central American families that warns of the dangers of attempting to enter the country illegally:

“The so-called "Dangers Awareness Campaign" will employ hundreds of billboards and some 6,500 public service announcements for radio and television stations in the target countries.

One offering has an image of a child's footprints in the desert running toward the horizon with the message in Spanish: "I thought it would be easy for my son to get papers in the USA. ... I was wrong."

Here's the AP story......

MISSION, Texas (AP) — Overwhelmed by a surge in illegal immigration, especially by unaccompanied children, the U.S. government has launched a $1 million international media campaign warning families in Central America that it's best to stay at home.

Standing beside the Rio Grande on Wednesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske said the message aimed primarily at Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador is two-part: The trip to the United States is extremely dangerous, and immigrants who make it here will not be allowed to stay.

"We have to stem the flow," Kerlikowske said.

The effort will test high production value messaging against the pervasive gang violence and intense poverty that pushes many immigrants to flee their homelands.

This week South Texas officials reported that a Guatemalan boy's body was found in the brush about a mile from the Rio Grande. He was trying to reach his brother in Chicago to help support their family in rural Guatemala.

Kerlikowske said that 226 immigrants have died crossing the border since October. More than 52,000 unaccompanied children have been detained during the same period after entering the U.S. illegally, mostly in South Texas.

The so-called "Dangers Awareness Campaign" will employ hundreds of billboards and some 6,500 public service announcements for radio and television stations in the target countries.

One offering has an image of a child's footprints in the desert running toward the horizon with the message in Spanish: "I thought it would be easy for my son to get papers in the USA. ... I was wrong."

A television spot slated to air in Guatemala shows a teenage boy preparing to leave home for the U.S. His mother pleads with him not to go. He confides to his uncle — already in the U.S. — in a letter that she's warning him about the dangers of the gangs on the train that immigrants ride through Mexico, the cartels that kidnap and the dayslong walk in the desert. Ultimately, he writes his uncle, "he who doesn't take a chance, doesn't win."

The next image is of the boy dead on the cracked desert floor. A voiceover says smugglers' claims that new arrivals will easily get papers are false. The television and radio spots all finish with a similar parting message: "They are our future. Protect them."

I guarantee if we start shooting at anything that moves across that border the flow will stop!

We are governed by idiots, I swear.

The above pic tells me why I don't believe this is a problem of 'immigration'.

This is an invasion. They intend to take over and it looks like they are succeeding.
