Shared Assumptions about Mexicans Pt. 2

Illegal Alien Problems

Unlike the "Bionic Mexican" clip, this one actually brings up the issue of immigration with regard to non-Latinos/as even though in the clip, as in reality, the majority who are targeted are Latinos/as. Wanting to practice hermeneutic generosity, I find myself contemplating humor as art, although art tends to be defined as something un-cliche, unless its pop-art drawing attention to itself; so, I recognize the blurry territory of humor used to criticize and humor used to reproduce negative discourse that can be seen in this play on the immigration issue in California.
