VALLEY CENTER, Calif. - Apr. 27 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Crisp new five "dolares" bills issued by the United States of Amexica are beginning to circulate in border states. The fake, but very realistic looking money, features the photo portraits of George W. Bush and Mexican President Vicente Fox. Michael Dalton Johnson who operates slick.com (www.slick.com), a political satire site, created the faux currency, designed to protest and parody America's porous borders.



Caption: The satirical five dolares bill from slick.com reflects popular support for border reform among American voters. Bills come in pads of 25.

This week slick.com mailed 50,000 sample bills throughout the Southwest. The bill features a "Declaration of the Citizens of the United States," which threatens politicians with populist muscle at the ballot box unless the border issue is resolved.

The mailing included the congressional delegations and governors of all border states as well as past buyers of their other satirical money which lampoons politicians on both sides of the ideological divide.

The new bill can be viewed online at, and additional information can be found at: www.slick.com.
