Border Shot

A new Robert Rodriguez film called Machete could add some fuel to the immigration heat.

Before the Southwestern state (Arizona) made headlines by, as CNN.com notes, requiring "all immigrants to carry alien registration documents at all times and requiring police to question people if there is reason to suspect them of being in the country illegally," Robert Rodriguez was toiling away on a Mexploitation film that touches on the same issue, to be released by 20th Century Fox on September 3, 2010. The new trailer for the film, which features Jessica Alba, Robert DeNiro, Lindsay Lohan and Michelle Rodriguez, lays out the basic plot points: Danny Trejo’s Machete is paid to assassinate a corrupt senator with an anti-immigration platform, but it’s actually a set-up to reinforce the senator’s call for harsh anti-immigration laws.
It gives you a warm & fuzzy feeling, no?
