The Young Conservatives of Texas at the University of Texas at Austin announced a new game: “Catch an Illegal Immigrant.”

From Washington Post:

Club members will wander the campus wearing signs that say “illegal immigrant,” and students who capture them and take them to the Young Conservatives’ recruiting table will get $25 gift certificates.

 The group’s spokesman Lorenzo Garcia said the game’s purpose was to spark discussion about the issue of illegal immigration and how it affects everyday life.


The game was condemned by the Texas Democratic Party. The University of Texas at Austin has an honor code that prevents students from conveying any message that hints at certain students not belonging on campus. Students found guilty of violating that code could face expulsion.
Update: Students have sense cancelled the game amid protests.
Just when you think things couldn’t get any more disturbing, a conservative student group proves you wrong.

Thoughts on the game?

Should the students face expulsion?
