The long-buzzed-about day finally happened, thanks to the University of Michigan's Young Americans for Freedom chapter. Only one student participated in the chase, while many others protested, the Michigan Daily says. One surprise twist: the dress code. Some protesters wore specially made yellow T-shirts that said, "Michigan Immigrant," while the costumed "illegal immigrant" was dressed as Christopher Columbus¬óbecause, explained the YAF chair, the explorer's 1492 conquest is a good analogy for modern illegal immigration.
