More on ABC’s “Homeland Security USA” Reality Show

The executive producer, Arnold Shapiro, acknowledged at the time that the show was meant to portray Homeland Security in a good light.

"I love investigative journalism, but that's not what we're doing," he told The Reporter in May. "This show is heartening. It makes you feel good about these people who are doing their best to protect us."

Most people who cross the border seek asylum here as a result from U.S. economic policies that have plunged them into poverty. They seek work to send home money. This is a TV show that reduces the greatness of this nation.

Homeland Security USA To Air on ABC on Three Kings Day

Big media and its partners in crime, the vested interests of the few along with political forces that challenge the promise in the Constitution of forming a more perfect union, have selected January 6 to premiere its new reality show, "Homeland Security USA."

January 6 is celebrated throughout the Spanish-speaking world, and it is a big world with two dozen countries, as Three Kings Day. On this day, three kings from the Middle East are said to be returning from Bethlehem, on their way back to their respective countries. To aid their journey, children leave hay and grass in their homes to feed the camels. In return, the kings leave a small token of appreciation.

Why, of all days, would ABC air "Homeland Security USA" on the very morning that Latinos celebrate Three Kings?

The answer is easy. It is not a mistake. It is yet another slap on our culture by Big Media and the government to stop Latinos from crossing the border.

Write to ABC to protest the poor choice of subject for a reality program and the cynical selection of its starting date.
