This is important to me because all immigrants are human beings, and deserve the opportunity to live with dignity in every state without ridicule. The YCT consistently uses their free speech to promote bigotry and this "game" legitimates racist ideological warfare in an effort to maintain their political strongholds in Texas. People of Mexican and other Latin heritages are routinely harassed and treated as suspects on university campuses in which they are legitimate students. Such "games" promote an environment of intolerance. What's next, "catch the runaway slave?" If they want to "spark a discussion" I suggest they play "hunt the white, privileged, racists" who believe they are more entitled to the former land of Mexico, now known as Texas than those who were here and kicked out. Then they could understand and discuss how profiling renders some people as criminally suspect based solely on their skin color.

People must not be rewarded for having social misconceptions of an entire race, culture, or heritage. And they should not be rewarding others who agree with them over something as stupid as catching an illegal immigrant.

As an alumni of the University of Texas, I was proud to attend a school with a diverse student body. It helped me to gain cultural knowledge and tolerance of people from all over the world. The friendships I made mean the world to me. This hunt is horribly racist and were I still a student, it would make me terribly uncomfortable to see in the public. The school's slogan is "What Starts Here Changes the World". Don't allow the racist demonstrations by the YCT change the world.

Take a stand for what is right, Tyler Grant. We are losing what made America the land of dreams. FAST

Making racism & labeling people as illegal immigrants a "game" is inhumane. WE as a people of America should respect every culture that enters the US because that is the reason why we've all come to America; to not be judged, to be safe, to have rights. The people of the YCT are abusing the "free speech". This organization needs to be taken off the registered orgs list for the safety of the students at the university.

This is totally wrong from any perspective that you can look at it. I could write a book as to why this is wrong and why we should revoke yct. This student organization if you can call it that is no different then any other racist group. To allowed them to form as a legal group at one of the best Universities in the capital of Texas would be outrages. It's not what the UT campus is about and most def. not what Texas should be about. If you can't go to school without being bullied then what's the point of going to school? Is it not to educate ourselves and learn to understand others? With "organizations" like these what can we expect from a school that is founded in a state that has had six different flags. I sign this petition with the hope that the UT campus lives up to my expectation of being a highly diverse and cultural school. Please revoke this anti illegal group. Thank you.

In the middle of a collaborative push to pass new Immigration Laws, this kind of activity detracts from good connecting and inclusion for all. My family were all immigrants.

Because we are also all citizens of the world and the US is not the world, only a very small part of it! Aside from that, my ancestors are indigenous to this entire hemisphere! If anyone is an "illegal immigrant" it are these members of the YCT whose ancestry come from Europe! If anyone is here illegal, it are the European stock. Now, once we can establish or accept that fact, then we can start reversing this particular "game" and everyone go catch themselves a YCT member! Just saying.......
