Halloween Brings Out the Immigration Crazies!

The Halloween season seems to bring out the crazies. See this ILLEGAL ALIEN costume from your friendly Target.

Recall that, two years ago, then-ICE head Julie Myers participated as a judge of a costume contest in which a tasteless -- and racist -- costume was praised.  And Myers took a picture with the costume winner.  Check the party pics out.

UPDATE According to press reports, Target received complaints from, among others, LULAC about the ILLEGAL ALIEN costume and promised to pull the on-line advertisement on Friday or Saturday.  As of this update on early Saturday morning, the ad is still up, although the ad states that the costume is out of stock.  The comments about the costume are worth a read.

Hattip to Pamela Wu for this story.
