“Illegal Alien” Halloween costume sparks ire

LOS ANGELES — A Southern California immigrant rights group has asked Target stores to stop selling an “illegal alien” Halloween costume it says is offensive to immigrants.

The costume, posted on Target’s web site, features the mask of an alien with a green card and an orange jumpsuit with “illegal alien” written across the front.

Target spokesman Joshua Thomas says the company is removing the costume from the site after receiving several complaints.
