Follow-up: Hundreds protest NYU immigrant “game”

Several hundred people demonstrated in front of NYU’s Silver Center (image) criticizing a “Find the Illegal Immigrant” event organized by the university’s student Republican club. Though one of the participants of the “game” admitted the event was “politically incorrect,” several protestors decried the lack of “promoting discussion and dialogue.” Even U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer stepped into the fray by deeming the “game” as “obnoxious.”
