Bumper Stickers Enter the War on Immigration
The increasing immigration problem has been weighed in on by both sides and everyone else in between. The progressives and the conservatives both have their pet methods of dealing with illegal immigration, though neither side can seem to claim dominance over the other. Even those not squarely rooted to one side or the other in this debate have ideas on what to do about it. So, with all those ideas floating around out there, surely there’s something being done, right? Wasn’t there a fence being built, somewhere? What about legislation allowing the illegal aliens to become citizens to facilitate the immigration process? Well, there’s defiantly a lot of talk going on; there’s no legislation that’s been passed just yet and that wall, while hotly debated, hasn’t seen the start of construction yet.
So, what are American’s doing about their immigration concerns? They’re putting their ideas, statements and political barbs on bumper stickers, that’s what! What a fantastic testament to the enduring popularity and power of this seemingly innocuous little tool. They’re ingenious, really. Bumper stickers are so ingrained in our society that it’s impossible to conceive a word where they didn’t exist. You can make a point, share a laugh or point out our social failures and promote the next potential political candidate. You can also make your feelings known about immigration and illegal immigrants. These are one of the fastest growing segments in the bumper sticker industry, apparently. They’ve even made headlines in newspapers and the Internet.
There’s a grass roots effort in the south west called No Border Wall. In addition to protesting the wall along the American-Mexican border, they are distributing bumper stickers featuring the words No Border Wall on a solid black background. This group has gathered a lot of support and many signatures of residents who oppose the building of the border wall between the two countries. Many residents use the bumper stickers as a means of showing their support for the blossoming American-Mexican border markets; others use them to make a statement in defiance of the border wall because it would effectively make many historical sites along the Rio Grande into no man’s land, effectively cutting them off from the rest of the nation.
Another news article centered around bumper stickers and the immigration problem runs:
Howie Carr recently found himself labeled a “Hate Monger” after handing out free bumper stickers at a local chowder festival that he had been invited to guest judge. His bumper stickers were imprinted with the words, “Illegal Aliens Go Home!” Carr handed out his bumper stickers free of charge, along with other merchandise at the festival. A letter to the editor of the local newspaper charged him with “preaching hate” and ruining the perfectly innocent Chowderfest with this propaganda. Carr responded with his traditional sarcasm and humor on his website.
In LA, a looming billboard and bumper sticker war between the left and right has flared on and off for the better part of the last year. The latest assault started when a billboard went up that read “Los Angeles, Mexico” and featured advertising for a local news channel. The local AM radio station KFI responded with a bumper sticker campaign that read “Just to clarify, you are here” with an arrow down to the words, “Los Angeles, California USA.” This is just the latest battle in a running string of them that the left and right have waged in the City of Angles through billboards and bumper stickers; neither side has gained a clear upper hand yet, though.
No matter what side of the immigration issue you weigh in on, bumper stickers give you the perfect means to get your point across.
