On Tuesday, the creators of the risqué card game Cards Against Humanity launched a holiday promotional campaign to "save America." The campaign includes the purchase of a vacant plot of land along the U.S.–Mexico border “to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built,” according to the campaign website. The company also has allegedly hired a law firm specializing in eminent domain to help with the effort.
The government is being run by a toilet. We have no choice... we are going to save America and attempt to keep our brand relevant in 2017— CardsAgainstHumanity (@CAH) November 14, 2017
Join in and for $15 we’ll send you six America-saving surprises this December: https://t.co/o1BFmokO9W
The promotion—now sold out—invited the first 150,000 customers to pay $15 for “six America-saving surprises” that will be delivered throughout the month of December; the first of which is an illustrated map of the land and a certificate of Cards Against Humanity's promise to fight the construction of the wall. “It will be fun, it will be weird, and if you voted for Trump, you might want to sit this one out,” the company writes.
As ARCHITECT has previously reported, President Donald Trump has upheld his campaign promise to advocate for the construction of a wall, and prototypes for a future borderwall were completed last month. However, just one day prior to Cards Against Humanity's promotional campaign launch, the Democratic members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee released a report on the Trump administration's "lack of cost or timeline for borderwall land seizure," according to a press release. Per their findings, the administration has not provided a definitive estimate for the amount of land that will need to be seized from private owners through eminent domain for the construction of the borderwall. Also, there are still upward of 90 pending U.S.–Mexico border land-seizing cases from 2008 and 2009 that remain unresolved.
