NFL Sacks Border Patrol

The NFL refused to run a recruitment ad by the Border Patrol in its Super Bowl Program saying it was "controversial." The ad listed some of the duties of a Border Patrol officer including preventing "the entry of terrorists and their weapons," blocking "unlawful entry of undocumented aliens" and "stopping drug smuggling."

An NFL spokesman said the ad "mentioned terrorism. We were not comfortable with that. The borders, the immigration debate is a very controversial issue, and we were sensitive to any perception we were injecting ourselves into that."

The NFL failed to mention that to get into the game fans had to go through security checks because of terrorism. Are they "uncomfortable" with that too? The NFL also forgets which country they are in. The vast majority of Americans want a tightened border, so what the hell is this talk about "controversial?"

What the NFL is really looking out for is its own interests - increasing its fan base among Hispanics & Latinos - & to hell with the Border Patrol, which happens to be a Federal agency.

The NFL with its narrow-minded interests is saying to the American public "screw you", although they are quick to take Americans' dollars - or is that Pesos? They should be ashamed. But they're not.
