Texas Student Group Criticized For Controversial 'Catch An Illegal Immigrant' Event

The Young Conservatives of Texas are not nice people http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/texas-student-group-criticized-for-controversial-catch-an-immigrant-event

The University of Texas Austin chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas is under fire for holding what it calls a "Catch an Illegal Immigrant" event on Wednesday.

According to a Monday Facebook post by the group's chairman, Lorenzo Garcia, the event will feature students walking around campus with T-shirts that read "illegal immigrant." Anyone who can "catch" a person wearing the shirt and bring them back to the group will receive a $25 gift card.

"The purpose of this event is to spark a campus-wide discussion about the issue of illegal immigration, and how it affects our everyday lives," Garcia wrote in the Facebook post.

Current and former UT students were offended by the event.
