The International Business Times reported that a new advertising campaign launched by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency warns aspiring migrants about the dangers of illegal immigration. In the ads, the Border Patrol agency alerts people about the risks of detention and deportation in an attempt to dissuade them from making the trek.

People are tweeting about the ads online as well:


One of the ads, according to a KGBT translation, says the following:
"The United States immigration law itself has not changed and those trying to cross the border without proper documents do not have 'permission' and will be the subjects for immediate deportation under President [Barack] Obama's recently announced immigration guidelines. If anyone says or promises something different, please, do not believe them. Protect yourself!"

With so much uproar over immigration and Donald Trump's inflammatory comments about Mexicans, the issue of illegal immigration is a hot topic today. Do you think these advertisements will be effective and persuade people to not try and illegally cross the border into the United States? Let us know in the comments section.
