TAKE ACTION: National Geographic’s Border Wars – Online Video Game

National Geographic’s Border Wars – Online Video Game

The National Geographic Channel’s "Border Wars" TV show (which is bad enough as it is) now has an online video game where you can pretend to be a Border Patrol agent.
This game is extremely offensive as it sensationalizes real conditions on the US-Mexico border and makes light of a very serious issue. Thousands of people suffer and die as a result of contentions over the border and it is NOT a game. Please send a comment to the National Geographic Channel asking them to take this game off of their website and that you are boycotting the show, the website, and all things National Geographic-related.
