“Win the Green Card:” False Hopes?

August 5, 2004

KRCA-TV Channel 62 in Los Angeles has launched a reality-type show in which contestants compete for a possible chance to win a green card. My colleague, Carl Shusterman states: “It’s a bad idea, bad, bad idea to go on a show like this and tell the world about it.” “There’s no way Channel 62 could guarantee that the immigration service isn’t going to go after some of these people. What control do they have? And to put it mildly, eating live scorpions might not be a good idea in my view either, but who am I to judge?”
