"Illegal Alien" Halloween costume arouses controversy in U.S.

As Halloween draws near, shops are selling Halloween costumes for children to play "trick or treat," but at least two "Illegal Alien" costumes have aroused controversy in the United States.

The "Illegal Alien Adult Costume" was manufactured by Forum Novelties, a manufacturer of novelty gifts. It has an orange jumpsuit similar to prison garb with "Illegal Alien" stamped in black across the chest, a space alien mask and a fake Green Card.

The "Illegal Alien Mask with Hat" includes a space alien mask with a dark handlebar mustache and a baseball cap.

Description of the costumes reads: "He didn't just cross a border, he crossed a galaxy! He's got his green card, but it's from another planet! Sure to get some laughs."

Civil and immigrant rights groups immediately took actions since last week to ask retailers of the "illegal alien" costumes to stop selling them.

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) wrote a letter last week asking several retailers, including Target, Walgreens and, to stop offering the costume.

Target and other sellers immediately took down the products either from their web sites or from the shelves. Target said the "Illegal Alien" costume was inadvertently uploaded to its web site due to a data entry error.
