The Young Conservatives of Texas are the same folks who brought you that affirmative action bake sale a while back. Now they wanna host a “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” game on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin on Wednesday. From their 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.

Even though folks like Senator Rand Paul are listed as alumni, some conservatives — some of whom are desparate to court Latino voters — aren’t too happy
