Barack Obama Look-Alike Stars in Immigration Ad Where He Dies at the End Like a Martyr

Your Tax Dollars at Work–
Paying for Obama martyr imagery.
A new ad campaign paid for by the federal government included an actor with a striking resemblance to Barack Obama.

Tony Lee at Breitbart reported:

An actor with a striking resemblance to President Barack Obama stars — and dies — in a new federal government commercial aimed at preventing and scaring Central American migrants from attempting to illegally enter the United States.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) unveiled the commercial on Thursday on both sides of the border. According to ABC, the ads will be “dramatic, made in the telenovella fashion.”

The Obama doppelgänger is featured saying goodbye to his mother and father in Central America before making the treacherous journey north. He is then shown dead in the desert, sprawled on the ground — like the Guatemalan child who was recently found dead after he attempted the journey to America. That migrant’s mother reportedly urged him not to make the journey, which he wanted to do to earn money to help with his mom’s sickness.

Most parents, though, have been led to believe that they and their kids will be granted amnesty once they enter the United States despite the claims of top Obama administration officials. Migrants have jumped on so-called “death trains” or have put their lives in the hands of smugglers and cartels to sneak into the U.S.

Numerous migrants who have been interviewed said they believed they would be allowed to stay in the U.S. indefinitely if they made it across the border, and many are even flagging down Border Patrol agents thinking they will receive “permisos” to remain in the country.

Of course, it’s not clear if the ad is supposed to deter illegal immigration or glorify it.
What a waste of taxpayer dollars.
