A University of Texas (UT) conservative student group is holding a mock immigration round up whereby someone is rewarded for catching an “illegal” immigrant.
The Young Conservatives of Texas - UT Chapter are hosting the offensive event on Wednesday. Students who participate will get $25 gift cards if they catch students who are wearing “illegal immigrant” nametags. The event is being actively promoted on campus and on the organization’s Facebook page. The parent organization that routinely supports Republican candidates has not disavowed itself of this chapter event.
