The party game Cards Against Humanity has bought a section of vacant land on the US-Mexico border to prevent President Donald Trump from building his wall.
The foul-mouthed card game announced a holiday promotion called ‘Cards Against Humanity Saves America’ and for just $15, customers will receive six ‘America-saving surprises’ in the mail.
Trump has promised to build a 700 to 900 mile border wall since before receiving the presidential nomination that he estimates will cost $18billion, but internal DHS assessments estimate the cost to be nearly $21billion.
‘Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a $20 billion wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing,’ the message on the website reads.
‘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 the wall to get built.’
For just $15, the game promises an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of promise to fight the wall, some new cards, and a few other surprises, all of which will arrive during the month of December.
In a spoof explanation video, the game is also giving those who take part in the promotion a piece of the land, which means that if the US government wanted to construct the border wall, it would have to take every individual to court.
According to Newsweek, the Trump administration might be doing just that, reportedly hiring several attorneys to fight landowners to seize property needed to build the border wall.
Roughly two-thirds of the land along the border is owned by private landowners or US states. Most commonly, Usually the government evaluates the land and then offers a market rate price.
If owners refuse, the attorney general can seize the land by calling ’eminent domain’, which turns the land from private to public use. Landowners can fight for more compensation through US District Courts.
This is not the first stunt the company has partaken in. Past stunts include: digging and filling a giant hole for no reason, destroying an original print of Pablo Picasso’s Tête de Faune, and offering nothing for $5.
