L.A. in Mexico

California billboards have relocated Los Angeles to south of the border, angering groups fighting illegal immigration.

According to the L.A. Times the billboards, touting the virtues of Noticias 62, a Spanish-language newscast on Los Angeles' KRCA-TV, show two cable newscasters sitting in front of Los Angeles' downtown skyline, with "Los Angeles, CA" printed above.

The "CA" however is crossed out, and "Mexico" is stamped alongside in bright red letters. Underneath are the Spanish words, "Tu ciudad. Tu equipo." -- Your city.

We tell the story behind L.A., and we tell the story behind Mexico," he said. "If they find that offensive, I'm sorry. But you just have to drive around L.A. to know that this is a Hispanic city."
