Target is under attack for one of its new Halloween costumes: the illegal alien. The space alien is dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit with “illegal alien” blazoned across its front and holds a large card reading “green card.”
It is beyond me how a major company could approve such an insulting costume, but Target appears to be pulling the product after various complaints. While I support enforcement of the immigration laws, one also has to accept that many kids out this Halloween are from illegal immigration families. It seems pretty callous and gratuitous to make fun of that status with prison garb for those children.
I suggest using the same jumpsuit and just putting “Target Executive” across the front. It is far scarier.
These costumes are particularly striking when illuminated by Target’s flashlights that threaten to catch the child on fire, here.
