Billboard Targets Illegal Immigrant Population in Texas

Breitbart – by Katherine Rodriguez

A billboard off I-35 in Texas is sparking debate among Austin’s citizens.

The advertisement is seemingly targeting illegal immigrants by asking them to join the dating site to avoid deportation, KEYE reports.  

ScreenshotThe sign reads, “Undocumented Immigrant? Before You Get Deported, Get a Sugar Daddy.” The sign is just off Highway I-35 near Frontage Road.

Jacob Webster, the online site’s chief marketing officer, told KEYE that he decided to run the ad “in response to Donald Trump’s promise to deport all 11 million of the nation’s undocumented immigrants.”

“ skews heavily towards Hispanic women, with that demographic making up more than 31 percent of all the females on our site nationally and over 53 percent in Austin,” Webster said.

The company was started in 2009 and now boasts 3.9 million members from the U.S., Canada, UK, and Australia.

Though may have had no racist intent, many are still questioning the message.

“Could have used another undocumented person. Not just Hispanic people are undocumented,” one commenter on KEYE’s Facebook page said. “But when the word immigrant is said … automatically a Hispanic is pictured. … Why is that?”

“Why is it only a Hispanic girl? Not just Mexicans are here illegally,” another commenter said.

  1. “Jacob Webster, the online site’s chief marketing officer, told KEYE that he decided to run the ad…”

    Then he should locked up for aiding & abetting FELONS.

  2. So why isn’t this guy locked up for aiding and abetting felons.

    Oh and if you want to get politically correct, the guy may get bad remarks from the political community because he called them “Undocumented Immigrants” and not “Undocumented Migrants”.

    Hope the bastard fries in Hell. This is what you get in Austin, TX and why they always say, “Keep Austin Weird”. The whole damn city is practically a breeding ground for illegal immigrants and wetbacks and has grown exponentially in the past two years after I left it. They kept building apartment housing all over the place and there’s no jobs there and many places have closed down. I always asked everyone when I was living there, “Who the hell are they building all of these houses for? There’s no jobs!”

    There’s your answer.
