"Angelica Salas, executive director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, wrote e-mails to Minneapolis-based Target and Wisconsin-based BuySeasons, Inc. calling the costume "distasteful, mean-spirited, and ignorant of social stigmas and current debate on immigration reform."

The group said it also planned to send letters to other companies that are selling the costume.
Lizette Olmos, national communications director for the League of United Latin American Citizens, called the costume "really disturbing," reported the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Target is removing the costume from the site after receiving several complaints, company spokesman Joshua Thomas said Friday. The store never intended to sell the outfit but included it in its online offerings by mistake, he said."

I think there should be illegal to be an idiot. This has nothing to do with immigration or Los Angeles. It's a literal "Alien" not a "Latin."

A couple nights ago I watched "Alien Nation" which is about a ship of aliens who show up and 'immigrate' to Los Angeles. Is that being ignorant of Social Stigmas?

A new tv show comes out next month called V, which has the same theme. Aliens come and integrate with humans.

I'm offended that they are offended. I should start a Coalition for Humane Alien Rights of Lake Forest and ask Target to put those costumes back on their shelves because it's being ignorant of the Aliens' feelings. Why should they be censored?

I wont even get into the fact that everyone in America was once an immigrant. It's what our country was founded on.
