‘Celebrity Big Brother UK’ Contestants Were Told To Build A Border Wall And Stop People Form Getting Green Cards

Some times, there’s nothing better than mind numbing reality TV. There’s just something kind of nice about turning off your brain and watching things that really don’t matter, like “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” or “Big Brother.” However, there are some moments of reality TV that do feed into ongoing and larger-than-life narratives. That’s the story with a recent “Celebrity Big Brother UK” episode that caused a lot of controversy.

This season of “Celebrity Big Brother UK” features a U.S. presidential theme because everyone thinks U.S. politics is a joke right now.

Stormy Daniels was supposed to be in the cast, but she dropped out last minute. The producers and crew decided to keep with the U.S. politics theme despite Daniels backing out of the season.

Kirstie Alley, one of two Americans on the show, decided to make the other contestants play a game where they built a wall to stop people from getting green cards.

On episode 4, Alley channeled President Trump and told her housemates that they had to build a “great wall” in order to stop from intruders from entering. Alley was also told to pick a person to oversee “the construction of a magnificent wall that will keep outsiders out of the house and away from Big Brother’s green cards.”

Contestants had to either help build the wall or dress up as border patrol to stop people from getting green cards.

People on social media, and some of the contestants, were outraged that “Celebrity Big Brother UK” would use the immigration crisis in the U.S. as a punchline.

Natalie Nunn, who is famous from the “Bad Girls Club,” thought that the wall building game was highly problematic.

Fellow contestants are shown as begging and pressuring Nunn to participate in the game. However, she did not stay quiet. She was quick to point out the offensive nature of the task and even called out Alley for being a Trump supporter.

Nunn pointed out that Alley had nothing to say because she supports Trump, who wants to build the border wall.

Nunn was so uncomfortable with the challenge that she did her best not to participate. She stood there in shock as people went right to work building the fake border wall.

People on social media sided with Nunn in their disgust about the challenge.

This is either a severe blindspot by the producers or they were just trying to spur a reaction from audience members.

The extreme antics seem to be pushing some fans far away from the show.

Before the border wall stunt, contestant Rodrigo Avles said the n-word twice in a conversation with some housemates. He was lectured and given a final warning about the language, but some people think that was too easy.

Real families are being torn apart because of this administration’s views on immigration. It isn’t something to joke about.

Making jokes at the expense of people losing their friends and families is a low point. There are so many other ways to have fun without minimizing the real impact of people being victimized by the U.S. immigration system.

Five Migrant Girls Were Found Left Alone And Abandoned In The Texas Heat

This past March, according to El Pais, migrants crossed the Rio Grande at an all-time high not seen in the past 15 years. US government reports underlined that a total of 171,000 people arrived at the southern border of the United States in March. Eleven percent were minors who made the journey by themselves.

Reports say that this vulnerable group will continue to grow in size with recent shifts in the Biden administration child immigration policies. Five migrants girls recently found by the river recently became part of this group.

An onion farmer in Quemado recently reported that he found five migrant girls on his land.

The girls were each under the age of seven, the youngest was too small to even walk. Three of the girls are thought to be from Honduras, the other two are believed to have come from Guatemala.​ Jimmy Hobbs, the farmer who found the girls, said that he called the Border Patrol gave the children aid by giving them water and food and putting them in the shade.

“I don’t think they would have made it if I hadn’t found them,” Hobbs told US Rep. Tony Gonzalez (R-Texas) in a New York Post. “Because it got up to 103 yesterday.”

“My thoughts are that it needs to stop right now. There are going to be thousands. This is just five miles of the Rio Grande,” Hobbs’ wife added in their conversation with Gonzalez. “That’s a huge border. This is happening all up and down it. It can’t go on. It’s gonna be too hot. There’ll be a lot of deaths, a lot of suffering.” 

“It is heartbreaking to find such small children fending for themselves in the middle of nowhere,” Chief Border Patrol Agent Austin Skero II explained of the situation in an interview with ABC 7 Eyewitness News. “Unfortunately this happens far too often now. If not for our community and law enforcement partners, these little girls could have faced the more than 100-degree temperatures with no help.”

According to reports, the Customs and Border Protection stated that the five girls​ ​will be processed and placed in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services.​

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Months of investigations on Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani officially came to a head Wednesday morning.

The former New York City mayor’s dealings with Ukraine officials in 2019 have been under scrutiny for months by authorities who have been investigating allegations Giuliani lobbied for powerful Ukrainian interests. The investigations have also looked into claims that Giuliani also solicited the Ukrainian government for damaging information on President Joe Biden when he was running against Trump in the 2020 election.

There is also the matter of allegations that Giuliani attempted to find information on Biden’s son Hunter, who was part of the board of an energy company in Ukraine.

Federal investigators executed a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan home on Wednesday morning.

The search was part of a criminal investigation into Giuliani‘s activities with Ukraine. According to The New York Times, “Prosecutors obtained the search warrants as part of an investigation into whether Mr. Giuliani broke lobbying laws as President Trump’s personal lawyer.”

Federal agents seized cellphones and other electronic devices as part of the investigation. The search warrant took place around 6 a.m. at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment on Madison Avenue and his Park Avenue office in Manhattan.

The execution of a search warrant against the former president’s lawyer is particularly shocking.

The warrant comes as a major development in the investigation that has been ongoing for some time and examines the former- mayor’s conduct during Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.

“It was also a remarkable moment in Mr. Giuliani’s long arc as a public figure,” noted New York Times. “As mayor, Mr. Giuliani won national recognition for steering New York through the dark days after the Sept. 11 attacks, and earlier in his career, he led the same U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan that is investigating him now, earning a reputation as a hard-charging prosecutor who took on organized crime and corrupt politicians.”
