The opposition to President Donald Trump’s proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is now the subject of promotion of Cards Against Humanity, one of the country’s top ranking gaming companies. As part of its latest promotion, the company has promised “six surprises” in December 2017 to those willing to donate $15. It has pledged to use the funds to disrupt the idea of creating a fence between the United States and Mexico.
Details published on the game’s new website www.cardsagainsthumanitysavesamerica.com revealed how the company planned to warp the Trump’s intent to build the wall by purchasing a land in the area’s vicinity. The website reads, “Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for that wall to get built.”
Cards Against Humanity has also sold specialty “supplemental packs” for card games, the proceeds of which would be made available to groups advocating marijuana legalization, in addition to other measures.
Trump has been repeatedly saying that his idea of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border will help stem the flow of illegal drugs into the U.S. “An astonishing 90 percent of the heroin in America comes from south of the border, where we will be building a wall which will greatly help in this problem,” Trump had said on Oct. 26, 2017, while declaring opioid crisis a public health emergency.
However, experts believe that erection of a wall at the border will not be able to curb the flow of narcotics, arguing that drug smugglers are now using innovative methods to carry out their illegal activities. For more than two decades, Mexican drug cartels have been using tunnels to smuggle drugs into the U.S. Reports suggest that more than 220 tunnels were unearthed at the U.S.-Mexico border between 1990 and 2016. Other trafficking methods being used by drug cartels include the use of drones and catapults.
Besides, critics say that the proposed wall will not fortify the nation’s security, but will surely have some unwarranted and formidable effects on the communities living within its vicinity. Apart from draining the nation’s treasury that would go into building the wall, the Trump administration will have to spend enormous amounts to acquire the land and face potential lawsuits.
Road to recovery
The addiction crisis is acute in the U.S. Building a border wall will not alleviate the dependence problem as the drug smuggling is largely fueled by increasing demand for them. Experts and health care advocates recommend education as the key to tackling the increasing problem of addiction to illicit as well as prescription opioids. It is necessary for people to understand that excessive use of any drug can lead to addiction. Clinicians recommend detoxification as the first step to any kind of addiction treatment. Considering the fact that detoxification can be painful due to withdrawal symptoms, it is necessary that it is carried out under medical supervision.
