Anyone who pays attention to the current state of politics knows that immigration is a pretty hot-button issue. However, Townhall recently learned that the intensity surrounding immigration has not stopped Parque EcoAlberto, a Mexico-based theme park, from making a mockery of illegal immigration into the United States!
A Closer Look at the Illegal Border Crossing Experience
Parque EcoAlberto’s ‘The Nightwalk’ attraction allows for visitors to get the faux experience of unlawfully entering America. The theme park maintains that the purpose of said attraction is to “raise awareness” to the plight of illegal immigrants who sneak across the border. The experience costs 350 Mexican Pesos which is about $17 USD.
Maribel Garcia, the park administrator of Parque EcoAlberto, doesn’t see anything wrong with the attraction, however.
Back in 2013, he delivered the following public statements to PBS:
“Our objective is to stop the immigration that exists amongst our citizens, principally from the state of Mexico to the U.S. We try to help people so that they won’t leave. It’s time to create some employment, to work with our own and regenerate everything, or at least what we can, even though it might be slow going.”
Some people may find Garcia’s claims to be interesting. Others might view the nature of ‘The Nightwalk’ as inherently contradictory towards stopping illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States.
A Deeper Look
It goes without saying that ‘The Nightwalk’ is an inherently problematic attraction. However, the mock theme park experience is only a symptom of the real issue at hand.
The ongoing issue is that many people do not respect the immigration laws of the United States. Democrats are largely to blame for this, seeing as they regularly support coddling and catering to people who sneak across our nation’s borders. Moreover, liberals have worked against President Trump and opposed legislation which would provide solutions to illegal immigration.
Parque EcoAlberto’s ‘The Nightwalk’ makes it clear that America’s immigration laws are not taken seriously. One of the first steps to show the world that we mean business is to further crack down on unlawful entry into the United States. Only by enforcing our laws and customs will America be able to show the rest of the world that we mean business.
