The head of a campus conservative group has agreed to cancel a planned event, known as the “Catch an Illegal Immigrant Game,” after negative feedback from University of Texas officials, immigrant rights groups, Democrats and Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott.

In a statement, Young Conservatives of Texas Chairman Lorenzo Garcia announced he would call off the event, which was planned for Wednesday.

“After the University President and the Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement released statements denouncing the event we planned as violating the university’s honor code, I spoke with our chapter’s members, and they are both concerned that the university will retaliate against them and that the protest against the event could create a safety issue for our volunteers.”

At least one counter-demonstration will go ahead as planned. The University Leadership Initiative will march from the UT tower to the district office of Congressman Roger Williams to call for a conversation on immigration reform.
