A student organization says it posted provocative signs about illegal immigrants at a Minnesota college as part of a social experiment.
    
The signs were posted Monday at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter and said "white Americans" had a "civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens," calling illegal immigrants "criminals."
    
Students tore down the signs.
    
The Diversity Leadership Council, which represents 21 student groups at Gustavus, said a subcommittee of the group and a social justice theater troupe posted the signs.

The group reportedly stated it hopes the campus will reflect on the social experiment, but apologized to anyone who may have been hurt.
