A theme park in El Alberto called EcoAlberto is capitalizing on illegal immigration.
For only 250 pesos you can experience a simulated border crossing. The simulation includes, “wading through mud, tunnels and across rough terrain without torches or water while trying to evade border guards, thieves and dangerous drug traffickers, all played by actors” according to The Telegraph.
The goal is apparently to raise awareness to the 'dangers' of illegal immigration.
“We started doing these walks on 31 July, 2004, with the aim of showing people the real Mexico that many people don’t want to see,” an alleged coyote told The Telegraph.
“Think now about the migrant who is travelling on top of a train or freezing in some desert night. What you will experience is probably not even five per cent of what those emigrants are going through,” he added.
According to Breitbart, El Alberto is close to 400 miles south of the actual US-Mexico border.
A translation from EcoAlberto's website reads, “The Alberto was until recently a remote forgotten community of literacy, why over 70% of the community emigrated to the United States for a better future. The Night Walk concept was created with the aim of raising awareness in our young countrymen community, showing them not to attempt risking their lives looking for ‘a better life in another country’ (live the famous American Dream), projecting a vision and a motivation to look for new production projects.”
