to see the costume do the url. ppl for decades have had their face on Halloween mask , so we should worry about what some wetback thinks, like they are something special. its a space alien that comes with a jumpsuit and alien mask and a big green card. ya think nixon tryed to stop target from selling his likeness on Halloween. this was almost to stupid to post, it looks like the x files not a mexican but its the green card that hints to what the costume mean.. so now they take jobs and tell ppl what they can selll. things seem to be getting scary. what ever happened to water ballooning cars and buses, like we use to do , and climbing the pole and cutting off the traffic light, and busting out store plate glass windows ..and egging cars, oh yes i was involved in all that ..


Immigrants Not Amused by ''Illegal Alien'' Halloween Costume
"He didn't just cross a border, he crossed a galaxy!"

Anyone who's walked down Santa Monica Boulevard on Halloween night is well aware there are plenty of tasteless costumes out there.

From over-sexed nuns to ... well, we can stop our list of examples at over-sexed nuns. That pretty much sums up tasteless costumes.

Well, this year, you may notice a new tasteless costume in Los Angeles: The "Illegal Alien."

"He didn't just cross a border, he crossed a galaxy!" according to the costume's description. "He's got his green card, but it's from another planet! Sure to get some laughs, the Illegal Alien Adult Costume includes an orange prison-style jumpsuit with 'Illegal Alien' printed on the front, an alien mask and a 'green card.'"

But not everyone thinks the costume is sure to get some laughs.

It's "distasteful, mean-spirited and ignorant of social stigmas and current debate on immigration reform," says Angelica Salas.

Salas, of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, has asked Minneapolis-based retailer Target to remove the costume from its website. Target spokesman Joshua Thomas told The Associated Press that the company is removing the costume after receiving several complaints.

But, Salas' work is far from over.

The costume also appears online at walgreens.com, toysrus.com, amazon.com, meijer.com and buycostumes.com.

Thomas told the AP that Target never intended to sell the outfit but included it in its online offerings by mistake. Sounds like we may be hearing that excuse from a few other retailers in the near future.
