Jona Mata AP English III – 2 nd October 31, 2010 Satire The targets of this cartoon are the policymakers of America and most presently, the government of Arizona for their strict imposition of the immigration policy. The political backwardness and lack of advancements in terms of the immigration policy of America is being satirized in this cartoon by using the double meaning of border as a pun or play on words and also depicting Uncle Sam, representing America, as an easily defeated figure. In full context, the government of Arizona is also satirized as they have imposed a more stringent immigration policy that calls for the prosecution and deportation of illegal immigrants. With this, the author of this cartoon calls for change in the political backwardness of American policymakers in terms of the immigration policy and also in the strict imposition of the immigration policy. The cartoonist, thus, wants to force policymakers to create a new immigration law that leans toward leniency and away from inhumane forms.
