According to CBS, the
Flash-based game, Border Patrol,
has been traveling the email circuit. When the game landed in Frank
Navarette's inbox, he was shocked to discover that the object of the game was to blast immigrants crossing the US
border from Mexico. The targets included three derogatory stereotypes: 'Mexican Nationalist,' 'Drug Smuggler,' and
'Breeder' (pregnant woman with two small children). “I found it offensive, racist and condescending,"
Navarette, who identifies himself as both Hispanic and Native American, has decided to
take action against the game. While CBS was able to track the location of Border Patrol
to a UK web host, the
game's developer could not be determined. The game has surfaced in the heat of a national debate over immigrant rights.
