(AP) A Halloween costume that depicts a space creature in orange prison garb emblazoned with the words "illegal alien" is reigniting debate over a long-used term based on the U.S. government's designation of all foreigners as aliens.

The dispute has immigrant advocates calling on retailers to pull the costume from its shelves, while a group that supports strict immigration laws says it's all a to-do over nothing, with freedom of speech being turned upside down by political correctness.

Since Friday, when the Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights in Los Angeles first raised the issue, companies including Target, Walgreens and eBay have removed the costume from their inventory. Still, many local retailers continue to stock the costume that also comes with a "green" card which technically makes the alien legal.

Somebody go pull the rod out from this coalition's dairy air. Grow a humor bone. Now if it looked mexican or something like that...yeah, maybe they have a beef. But it's an ALIEN...a little green guy from Outer Space.

I've heard the story....people need to quit taking everything so seriously. Another example of political correctness run a muck.
