If you’re still looking for that perfect Halloween costume, never fear, your search is over. The illegal alien costume comes complete with an orange jumpsuit that says “illegal alien,” a “green card” — and an alien mask. As the costume’s package says, “He didn’t just cross a border, he crossed a galaxy!” And, “He’s got his green card, but it’s from another planet!” Naturally, the costume has caused an uproar from liberals who prefer distorted Nixon, Reagan and Bush masks. They are a sensitive lot, after all. Target even pulled the costume off its shelves after receiving complaints, saying the whole thing was a mistake.
NBC’s Los Angeles affiliate headlined the story “Immigrants Not Amused by ‘Illegal Alien’ Halloween Costume.” Memo to NBC: They are illegal immigrants. Do we really have to bow to their feelings on Halloween costumes now?
Of course, if that costume doesn’t suit, you can always dress up like Jesse Jackson and head over to MSNBC. They’ll think you look just like Al Sharpton!
