Target and Others Halts Sales of "Illegal Immigrant" Halloween Costumes
Good for Target, Walgreen's and other stores which have pulled Halloween costumes mocking undocumented residents from their shelves and websites:
Several well-known chain stores have halted sales of an "illegal alien" Halloween costume after complaints from immigrant-rights activists.
The costume includes an orange jumpsuit similar to prison garb, with ILLEGAL ALIEN stamped across the chest, a "green card" and a space alien mask. Activists began complaining Friday when they learned the costume was being sold in stores or on Web sites of retailers including Target, Walgreen's and Amazon. The costume was priced between $27.49 and $39.99.
The costume was made by Forum Novelties Inc., based in Melville, New York. Now that's a company boycott I'd support.
