If the goal of the Young Republican Club at New York University was to create debate about illegal immigration in the United States, the organization surely succeeded with it's Find an Illegal Immigrant contest. Not only was there debate, but there were several protests.

We went to the campus to randomly interview students about the game. Not surprisingly, given the largely liberal student body, those we interviewed found the game appalling.

I found it interesting that the NYU chapter of the ACLU joined voice opposition to the game. Wasn't the ACLU formed to protect free speech, even when that speech is distasteful?

Now the New York City Council is contemplating a resolution "banning" the use of the "N" word in New York City. Racists, rappers and free speech advocates shouldn't feel too concerned. Like the congressional resolution in opposition to increasing troop strength in Iraq, the New York initiative is non-binding.
