Just when you thought the members of the ultra-conservative group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) couldn't get any more tasteless, they decide to send used underwear to undocumented immigrants.
William Gheen, president of the anti-immigration group ALIPAC, urged members to send their "gently used underwear" to President Obama, John Boehner and undocumented immigrants.
The post came as a response to the Department of Homeland Security's request for thousands of pairs of clean men's underwear due to the recent flood of Central American immigrants crossing illegally over the U.S.-Mexico border, according to Think Progress.
"Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and D.C. 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," Gheen said.
This is not the first time the ALIPAC leader has urged members to take hostile actions against undocumented immigrants and anyone who supports immigration reform. In September of last year they compared undocumented immigrants to terrorists, asking Americans to "speak against amnesty on 9/11!"
ALIPAC is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
They have been called racists and bigots by other anti-immigration groups. The founder of the Minutemen, a border patrol advocacy group, wrote in an email that Gheen and his cohorts are “incurable racists who limit activist participation to only white persons, bigots,” according to The Raw Story.
