Halloween Illegal Alien Costume Controversy

A Halloween costume depicting an illegal alien is at the hot seat of controversy according to CNN News. Apparently people with friends who are illegal aliens living in these United States are voicing upset at the costume which sports a familiar orange prison type jumpsuit, the words illegal alien across the back, a space alien mask, and a fake green card. A second version of the costume has an orange jump suit, the words illegal alien across the back, a green card and a space alien mask with a ball cap and a handle bar mustache.

This costume is upsetting the illegal immigrants of our country. Seriously? Who cares! Let me get this political correctness straight for the record… There are illegal aliens (people whom have entered the USA) by sneaking over the border or letting their work visa expire and we are suppose to care that a Halloween costume is offending them? I say tell the illegal aliens that are upset, GO HOME!

According to the article in the Chicago Tribune, The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, known as CHIRLA, “began receiving e-mails from concerned legal immigrants on Friday” and CHIRLA “wrote a letter asking several retailers, including Target, Walgreens, and Amazon, to stop offering the costume”.

One man interviewed for the story was Guillermo Iglesias. Mr. Iglesias, found the costume offensive “because it depicted illegal immigrants as not one of us.” Apparently both his parents were illegal immigrants, and he has several illegal immigrant friends in the USA. Honestly… I think a judge should request a court-order to check Mr. Iglesias’ cell phone records and emails and deport those illegal immigrant friends of his living here. The truth be told Mr. Iglesias, illegal immigrants are not one of us. Those of us whom are residents of the United States are here legally. THAT is the way it should be.

Jay Leno had previously commented about illegal immigration and Homeland Security, “You read about all these terrorists, most of them came here legally, but they hung around on these expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years. Now, compare that to Blockbuster, you’re two days late with a video and those people are all over you. Let’s put Blockbuster in charge of immigration”!
Does anyone else find this is ridiculously insane that we are worried about upsetting those people who are here illegally? Grow up America; this politically correct BS is turning America into a land of wussies!
