What Part Of "Illegal" Don't They Get ?

A California illegal immigrant rights group has demanded that Target stores stop selling an "illegal alien" Halloween costume it says is offensive to illegals.

Angelica Salas, executive director of the illegal immigrant rights group, says she sent an e-mail to the Minneapolis-based retailer Friday calling the costume "distasteful, mean-spirited, and ignorant of social stigmas faced by illegals in the US."

The Halloween costume, which was posted on Target's web site, featured an orange jumpsuit with "illegal alien" written across the front and a mask of an alien.

A Target spokesman said that "the store never intended to sell the outfit but included it in its online offerings by mistake." He added that "Target has removed the costume from their web site and that they apologize to any illegal immigrants that they may have offended."

I love the way that they expect our culture to bend to theirs.
