So it's ok to dress up like a nun and mock Catholicism in San Francisco but you can't make fun of illegal aliens. Go figure.

Sparking ire is the surest sign of a successful Halloween costume.

Illegal aliens are offensive to me. Gang culture is offensive to me. People who can’t or won’t learn or speak English in this country are offensive to me.

People who don’t assimilate into the most free, productive, generous and successful country in the world offend me.

It’s a two way street.

No if he shows up on your doorstep you are going to have to give him free health care, Section 8 housing, food stamps, free education for his kids, a motor voter registration card and a lawyer. Kind of hard to fit it in his bag.

Illegal aliens SHOULD have a stigma! If they went back home, then, *poof*, the stigma would be gone!

BTW, I was very offended by the rice and beans that someone threw up in my front yard. This really happened!

my car got keyed TWICE, just for a W sticker... they wouldn’t bother putting the blades in the candy.. They’d totally “BYPASS the MIDDLEMAN”. but I’d take a FEW of ‘em with me..

I seem to remember a school where for Halloween some students came as illegal aliens. They showed up with leaf blowers.

That's some funny sh*t right there.

There will be a few million GENUINE Illegal Alien outfits out on Hallowween evening. They will be blue jeans with a dirty T shirt and a baseball cap on backward.

“Illegal” outrages “Immigrants”... it should not if they are legal immigrants. This again is a ridiculous statement.

With what ‘rights’ do they DEMAND the costumes not be sold in an American store?

A Southern California immigrant rights group has asked Target stores to stop selling an “illegal alien” Halloween costume it says is offensive to immigrants.
_________________________________________

Now that is a scary costume...

And as an immigrant...

I am not offended...

Someone has been lying about me again...

Anyone can bash any conservative or Christian group - but NO DEM VICTIM groups can be made fun of - they're sacred.

You can be an illegal alien or you can be an immigrant, but you don't need an immigration visa for the former but you do for the latter.

No idea why an "immigrant rights" organization would get all huffy about non-immigrants.

I think they really mean "people of a certain skin color who speak Spanish as a first language" and nothing more than that ~ kind of like they've been profiling people or something.

This “ILLEGAL ALIEN” costume idea is hilarious! (But shouldn’t they be wearing the Sheriff Joe style of Illegal Alien Costume, with pink underwear and the black & white horizontal striped jail suits?!)

Too bad Target has buckled under pressures & complaints and will stop selling the ORANGE illegal alien costumes. We need to AT LEAST be able to JOKE & LAUGH AT & MAKE FUN OF ILLEGAL ALIENS, while we wait for the Cowards-in-Chief to DO SOMETHING TO SEND THEM HOME!

BTW, every American should be harrassing their Senators & Representatives for “NO AMNESTY” or we’ll end up with millions of newly legitimized ALIENS who will soon be VOTING and we all know where THAT will take us!!!
:-(((

This reminds me of the Phil Collins/Genesis song of the mid-1980’s ‘...it’s no fun being an “Illegal Alien.”’ I liked the song and thought the video was pretty funny too. You’ll note that NOBODY plays that one on the oldies stations. LOL

I do not think you people realize your insensitivity. I, for one, would NEVER wear such a hideous orange jumpsuit. Nor is my complexion so sallow. That rendition looks nothing like me and it is highly offensive.
