'South Park' takes on Trump

"South Park" is taking on Donald Trump in a new episode airing Wednesday night.

The satirical cartoon on Comedy Central is lampooning Trump's stance on border security and illegal immigration in an episode titled "Where My Country Gone?", according to ScreenCrush.

"The United States government has decided to let anyone who wants to cross the border in," reads Comedy Central's description of the episode. "The boys are at odds with the increasing number of undocumented immigrants in their classroom," it continued, referencing the show's main characters, Kyle, Stan, Kenny and Cartman.

"Mr. Garrison wants to build a wall to keep them all out."

ScreenCrush also said on Tuesday that "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are staying mum about whether the GOP front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination actually is appearing in Wednesday's broadcast.

A clip promoting its release shows protesters carrying signs bearing the outspoken billionaire's "Make America Great" campaign slogan. It also features the show's characters expressing bombastic rhetoric on the nation's immigration struggles.

"My friends, I know that like me, you are fed up with the illegal immigration situation," the character Mr. Garrison says in the ad to cheers.

"I don't know about government policy, but when it comes to undocumented immigrants, f--- them all to death," he shouts as other characters wave signs bearing Trump's campaign theme and other anti-illegal immigration messages.

Trump has sparked controversy by vowing to deport illegal immigrants already in the country and build a border wall at Mexico's expense if elected, and commands 28.5 percent voter support, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls
