Raymond Herrera was interviewed in the Mega Spanish language television station, Los Angeles, beamed via satellite to the Florida television station of the Maria Elvira en vivo show.
A guest - an activist preacher “Eduardo” and former illegal alien - demanded the Halloween costumes be banned from stores. The activist preacher was present with Maria Elvira in the Florida television station.
In the clip above, Herrera explains that in the U.S. freedom of expression exists. Herrera stated that the illegal alien Halloween costume is intended to be humorous. He joked that he will be an illegal alien – carrying a Minuteman card in hand for Halloween.
Maria Elvira surprised her in-studio guest Preacher Eduardo with a person who appeared on stage in a taco costume. Her guest Eduardo also objected to the taco costume – claiming tacos are associated with Mexicans/Hispanics and therefore the taco costume and the illegal alien space costume should both be banned at Halloween. He declared both costumes offensive.
Maria Elvira indicated that to ban a taco costume is excessive. Herrera commented that there are also hamburger and hot dog Halloween costumes. The guest maintained the taco costume was inappropriate.
Herrera was asked about Sheriff Arpaio of Maricopa County. Herrera stated that Sheriff Arpaio is upholding and enforcing the laws of the United States.
(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
