Hello Blog. Last day in the US before the long trip back to Japan, but here’s a little something I just got from a friend this morning:
STOP THEM AT THE SHORES, PROTECT [OUR COUNTRY].
PLEASE COOPERATE IN STOPPING ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR ILLEGAL ENTRY.
CONTACT IBARAKI PREFECTURAL POLICE HQ
Sponsored by the Ibaraki Prefectural Police Coast Guard Cooperative Union (Ibaraki ken keisatsu kaigan keikai kyouryoku rengokai)
(Click on the image itself there to make it full screen.)
Nothing like six riot police (seven, actually–look closely) in full regalia to protect us from the alien horde. Er, can horde be singular? Anyway, yet another example of overreaction and targeting by the government towards NJ.
Sure, raise awareness about overstayers and illegal entrants. But don’t make it seem as though there’s an invasion afoot, and that you need measures this extreme.
