Must Not Laugh At Illegal Aliens

Do you know what burns my bacon? How we’re not allowed to laugh at criminals anymore.

A Southern California immigrant rights group is upset that Target is targeting illegal aliens this Halloween.

The popular shop-to-you-drop store has a very funny and creative costume of an illegal alien. But it’s not your typical South-of-the-border kind. It comes with a prison-orange jump suit, a green card and a gray extraterrestrial mask.

But instead of having a good laugh at the folks who have caused some problems for Americans by coming into this country illegally, the Coalition of Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) decided to paint its own bulls eye at Target and BuySeasons, Inc., the company that made the costume, saying that it is a “distasteful, mean-spirited, and ignorant of social stigmas and current debate on immigration reform.”

Really? So, all these years when little kids and adults dressed up as your typical bank robber, the Italian mob hitman (and let’s face it, is there any other kind?), mob boss and escape convict, no one from CHIRLA had a problem with those? Is that the smell of a rotting Jack-O’Lantern or is it the smell of hypocrisy?

And let’s face it, while the costume does poke fun of those illegal immigrants, the mask doesn’t show someone born and raised from Mexico. The mask is that of the typical gray alien that is supposed to abduct people from their rooms at night.

And the only person who has any right to be upset over that costume is America’s favorite illegal alien: Superman. And we’re pretty powerless to do anything against him. It’s not like we have a jail to lock up that guy anyway.

Illegal immigration is a huge problem for all of us. It’s a slap in the face to the people who work hard to be here legally and it does cause huge problems, such as bringing drugs and crime into this country, among other things.

And the only outfit that should bother illegal aliens this Halloween is the kind that suspiciously looks like an authentic border patrol uniform.

It seems they are taking a page from Jesse Jackson's unofficial bio "Obnoxious, Indignant and Surly--Publicity At Any Cost."
