The US is holding a large number of undocumented immigrant children in various locations around the country. In order to cope with their needs, the Department of Homeland Security has issued a call for bids to supply 42,000 pairs of underwear to them. One anti-immigrant group known as the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has started “Underwear for Illegals” and called on its followers to send in dirty underwear instead.
In a message to his followers, the president William Gheen says:
“Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans.”
I will never understand what it is that makes people do such mean and petty things.
