‘Border Patrol Sex’ Mocks The Real Rape Of Migrant Women

Art has never imitated life so disgustingly.

One of the biggest pornography companies in the world has launched a webseries called Border Patrol Sex that features American border patrol agents catching undocumented Mexican and Central American immigrant women attempting to cross the border, arresting them, handcuffing them, raping them, and then sending them back to Mexico.

The reality of the series is too close for comfort. A recent Fusion investigation revealed that 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. from Mexico are raped during their journey.

“Women and girl migrants, especially those without legal status traveling in remote areas or on trains, are at heightened risk of sexual violence at the hands of criminal gangs, people traffickers, other migrants or corrupt officials,” read a 2010 Amnesty International report that Fusion cited in its investigation.

For many women coming to America, rape is the price paid to advance in their journey. Women and girl’s bodies are traded like currency to buy a few extra miles northward. Assailants are rarely caught or prosecuted.

Border Patrol Sex isn’t the diseased brainchild of random misogynistic nativists with video cameras. The site is operated and owned by MindGeek, a European company that owns most of the biggest porn sites on the Web, including YouPorn, Pornhub, Xtube, RedTube, SpankWire, and dozens of major porn sites.

MindGeek established Border Patrol Sex earlier this year, around the same time that news stories circulated about sexual assault of female migrants. In the videos, sex is a punishment to be endured before being deported.

“Watch these guys hunting the illegal female immigrants and giving them a lesson on why the law should be obeyed,” Border Patrol Sex’s website states. “Cruising in their SUV, agents catch these college girls in the field and fuck them really hard. Getting fucked by border patrol agent is one thing, but these girls don’t know that this doesn’t really mean they get to pass the border afterwards. The harsh school of reality!”
