The Writings on the Stall

yct hits a new low (if that's even possible)

You may have heard about the University of Texas YCT Chapter (or its ilk) from such notable events as the Affirmative Action Bake Sale or, more recently, their "Kerry Dump". I've been informed that the group is set to have another "performance" on campus tomorrow. Details of the event, from the group's website:

YCT will be hosting "Catch an Illegal Immigrant Day" this month (date is forthcoming). This will take event on the West Mall with the purpose of educating people about the negative effects of George W. Bush's propose amnesty plan for illegal immigrants.

Throughout the day students will have the ability to be deputized by a YCT member and then go out and try to catch those wearing a shirt saying "illegal alien" on them. Students who successfully accomplish this will be rewarded.

Lest we forget that a majority of Americans descend from immigrant roots. Or that immigrants are some of the hardest working/respectable persons in this country. Do they deserve punishment for obviously attempting to make a life for their families and themselves?

Whatever happened to "Give me your tired, your poor, / Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..."?
