Comedian Samantha Bee, host of the comedy show “Full Frontal” on TBS, is promoting her upcoming Christmas special with dolls dressed as Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raiding a nativity scene.
The theme of Bee’s holiday episode is “Christmas on ICE,” a jab at the federal agency and President Donald Trump’s hard-line stance against illegal immigration.

“You know, Christmas is a time for families, even those families that we’ve separated, which is why I’m spending this Christmas on ICE,” Bee says in the promo video. “Get it?”

The TBS host, who clearly mimicked first lady Melania Trump’s 2017 holiday decor, goes on to say the Christmas special will raise money to reunite families that have been separated at the southern border.

“Our special will raise money to help bring immigrant families back together, and we’ll have all the traditions you’ve come to expect — joy, the border wall, special guests, the birth of the Christ child,” she says.
Bee concludes the cheeky advertisement by saying the U.S. “f***ed over thousands of immigrants and we still haven’t fixed it. Merry Christmas!”
