PETA is calling for Donald Trump Jr. to be deported as part of its “Deport Undesirables” border ad campaign.

In the billboard posted on Twitter Friday, Trump Jr. is pictured holding a knife in one hand with an elephant tail in the other next to artwork that read, “Deport Callous Cheating Opportunists Now!” and “All nations have their undesirables. Kindness welcome.”

“PETA says ‘Deport Undesirables!’–like trophy hunter @DonaldJTrumpJr– in billboard as #NationalGuard troops are about to be deployed to the U.S.–Mexico border,” PETA tweeted Friday, along with a photo of the billboard.

According to a release from PETA, the billboard ad campaign will be centralized along the southern border of the United States, with signs going up in border towns of El Paso and Laredo, Texas. The campaign is in response to President Donald Trump’s deployment of the National Guard to the border.

“While people are fleeing to the U.S. to escape violence, over-privileged, callous, cheating louts like Donald Trump Jr. are flying overseas to gun down living, feeling beings just for fun,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said. “PETA’s border ad is a reminder that kindness is a virtue and that Central America doesn’t hold all the cards when it comes to ‘bad hombres.'”
