America Has 14,000 Golf Courses And 6,000 Refugees Waiting At The Border

Yes, there are enough golf courses in the United States for every adult and child asylum-seeker in Tijuana to have their own entire course — and there would still be nearly 9,000 left over.

My actual name is Yasiel Puig Slim (or “El Chopo” for short) and I am an asylum seeker, so two golf courses are rightfully mine. For my golf courses, I put my dibs down on Pebble Beach (above) and Cypress Point (below).
