About 50 students at New York University have signed up to play a game, “Find the Illegal Immigrant,” created by student members of the College Republicans. One student is chosen to wear a tag identifying her as an illegal immigrant, and the first student “immigration enforcement agent” to find the tagged student wins a prize.

About 500 students have signed up to protest the game, which they consider “ignorant” and “dehumanizing.” NYU has issued a statement supporting the College Republicans’ right to free speech and the resulting debate that is created by the illegal immigrant hunt.

A CNN news segment is available here.
