On April 23, 2010, Arizona Governor Janis Brewer (R) signed Senate Bill 1070, the most radical immigration legislation in the United States, effectively permitting racial profiling in the state of Arizona. The law requires police to demand immigration papers from anyone who they have a "reasonable suspicion" is in the country illegally. This blog will chronicle the major events regarding this racist and inhumane law.
We enthusiastically encourage a boycott of the State of Arizona until the law is repealed.


Adrian Gonzalez: Boycott All-Star Game in AZ

"Ok, it's one thing for Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen to say he would boycott next year's All-Star Game in Phoenix if Arizona's new immigration law goes into effect...

But when San Diego Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, a two-time All-Star threatens a boycott, we're all ears.

Gonzalez told Tom Krasovic of AOL Fanhouse that he will not play in next year's All-Star Game if the law is in affect, and would even like to see Major League teams boycott spring training in Arizona.

"I'll support the Players Association 100%," says Gonzalez, who grew up in Tijuana and Chula Vista, a suburb south of San Diego. "If they leave it up to the players and the law is still there, I'll probably not play in the All-Star Game. Because it's a discriminating law.

"I know it can't be done, but they should take spring training out of (Arizona) if it's possible."" (READ MORE) (VIDEO)
