ALIPAC prez to conduct interviews in "Illegal Alien" costume

Yesterday, we told you that Target had pulled a Halloween costume from its website. The costume was called "Illegal Alien" and featured a space alien holding a green card and wearing prison clothes.

After being posted on Digg, that post generated a fervent response in the comments--more than 43 in 24 hours on a usually sleepy Saturday. It also had 300 373 410 Diggs and 155 199 comments on the popular news aggregator.

Now, anti-immigration organizations are using the costume as a rallying cry and encouraging supporters to wear it this Halloween. And the president of anti-immigrant group ALIPAC will be conducting interviews next week while wearing the costume, according to a press release issued Sunday afternoon.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC's President William Gheen is offering to conduct interviews next week, while wearing the controversial illegal alien costume recently banned by Target at the request of a few pro-illegal immigrant groups.

"The illegal alien supporting groups in America are attacking free speech once again," said Gheen. "These are the same types of people that are trying to ban Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck from television. They want to control what people can see, hear, say, or even wear for Halloween in pursuit of their open borders agenda."

Gheen has ordered his costume through Amazon.com and is encouraging others to do the same to help protect the businesses that created and still distribute the costume.

Who is William Gheen? We think our Phoenix sister paper described him best as a "nativist hatemonger." If you get one of these interviews on video, please send it to us. The image of this guy talking seriously in that stupid alien mask is just too precious to resist.

Illegal Alien Costumes Are Cool for Halloween!

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC's President William Gheen is offering to conduct interviews next week, while wearing the controversial illegal alien costume recently banned by Target at the request of a few pro-illegal immigrant groups.

"The illegal alien supporting groups in America are attacking free speech once again," said Gheen. "These are the same types of people that are trying to ban Lou Dobbs and Glenn Beck from television. They want to control what people can see, hear, say, or even wear for Halloween in pursuit of their open borders agenda."

Gheen has ordered his costume through Amazon.com and is encouraging others to do the same to help protect the businesses that created and still distribute the costume.

Businesses that value the freedoms and protections of American citizens should be rewarded, while businesses like Target that quickly cave to radical pro-illegal alien political groups should be rebuked.

Gheen hopes this controversy will backfire on the illegal immigrant supporters, and that demand for the illegal alien costumes will rise and quickly lead to sold out inventories. The illegal alien costumes now qualify as collector items.

CNN is reporting Gheen's initial comments in reaction to this new controversy.

"The only people getting upset are the hyper-sensitive, over-politically correct, pro-amnesty, illegal alien-supporting nuts," said Gheen. "You can't attack people's freedom in this country."

Upon further reflection, Gheen had this to offer.

"Why is it that a few illegal alien supporters can get a global corporation like Target to remove all illegal alien costumes from their stores with a few calls but the over two hundred million Americans constituting the over 80% of us who want illegal aliens out of America make millions of calls to Congress and the President to no avail? " asked Gheen. "If someone really wanted to dress up as an illegal alien, they should dress up like President Obama's illegal alien Aunt Zeituni Onyango in Boston and hold a welfare check instead of a fake green card!"

The illegal alien costumes causing the furor are for sale online but have been removed from Target's online store. The costumes are of a space alien in an orange prisoner's jump suit holding a fake green card with the caption "illegal alien" across the chest area.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, ALIPAC, is one of America's largest grass roots organizations fighting for secure borders and the enforcement of our existing immigration laws. For more information and to schedule interviews visit www.alipac.us
