Conservative College Kids Host “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” Game

The University of Texas-Austin’s Young Conservatives chapter, which “has been fighting for conservative values for more than a quarter century,” boasts of alumni like Senator Rand Paul and Congressmen Jeb Hensarling and Steve Stockman. We wonder what they think of the group’s latest stunt: A campus-wide game, called “Catch an Illegal Immigrant,” which rewards students who tackle designated Longhorns wearing “Illegal Immigrant” signs. Because they’re illegal immigrants. Get it?

From the group’s Facebook page:

YCT will be having a “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” event this upcoming Wednesday. The details of the game goes as follows:

There will be several people walking around the UT campus with the label "illegal immigrant" on their clothing. Any UT student who catches one of these "illegal immigrants" and brings them back to our table 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.

Young Conservatives of Texas also hosted an “affirmative action bake sale” in late September, “to highlight the hypocrisy of the liberal agenda.”

Prominent conservatives do not seem very happy, for some reason.
