"The Clown Immigration Patrol is a federal law enforcement agency within U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It is an agency in the Department of Homeland Security that enforces laws and regulations for the admission of foreign-born homo-comicus to the United States codified in the ‘We’re Not Commedia’s Clown Car Act’. The C.I.P. was founded on May 28, 1924 as an agency of the United States Department of Entertainment to prevent illegal clown entries along the Mexico–United States border. Originally only stationed in Texas with under 200 service men, the C.I.P now employs over 20,000 agents with offices in all major cities of the United States."

After the 1996 Saturate Riots in Downtown Los Angeles* congress quickly moved the E.N.D.A. bill (H.R. 1858) through the Senate and into law. An act “that prohibits discrimination against employees on the basis of sexual orientation, race, or cultural identity”. Many native Zanni clowns rejoiced at the passing of the bill unaware that proposition 310 had been attached to the act. The proposition states, “Any employment of clowns, native or otherwise, with a net salary of over 50k must relinquish their colors and voice as a sign of allegiance to the United States of America.” Those that chose to continue into the corporate world are often ridiculed by their peers and referred to as “Mimes”.
*Sparked by the “Great Lay-Off” of Garrison Petroleum where over 3000 clowns lost their jobs. Documents were revealed to the media showing pressure put on the company from stock holders to “help cleanse the country from this joke”.
