This is just totally sick! (Don't worry, I'm not posting a ton of stories - it's just a very werid day here and I thought these were unusually noteworthy). I think these shows really need to get a grip on decency!
"Legal and immigrant groups demand TV station pull Green Card game
By LAURA WIDES

LOS ANGELES Immigrant rights groups demanded Thursday that a local Spanish-language TV station cancel a "Fear Factor" type reality show that offers winners immigration counsel, alleging the show takes advantage of those desperate for a green card and a life in the United States.
The show features immigrants who compete in contests that have included gulping down live tequila worms, fending off vicious attack dogs and jumping between two speeding 18-wheelers.
The groups say Liberman Broadcasting's "Gana la Verde" or "Win the Green," shown on stations in Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston and Dallas, gives a false impression of how the immigration process works and ridicules those seeking legal status in the United States. They said it also makes contestants who are illegal immigrants potential targets for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
