"Site advertises trip simulating undocumented immigration."

The blog of travel site Kayak.com currently has a post up highlighting “semi-illegal” vacations for people who want to live life “on the edge.” Their top choice? A get-away to Mexico City to simulate the experience of being an undocumented immigrant, complete with actors posing as border control agents “shooting (blanks) at you“:


The Mexico City trip has now been taking off the post. ThinkProgress spoke with a Kayak.com representative who simply said that it had been removed because of “complaints.” The trip, however, was also highlighted in a Kayak.com e-mail today.

UPDATE: Unlike Kayak.com’s billing of the vacation as one that will “scare you senseless,” guides for trip describe it “as an homage to the path immigrants have beaten across the border.”
