Immigration Rights Groups To Protest Today's Game At Fenway

New, 2 comments

The boycotts continue.

The Boston Globe is reporting that immigration rights groups will gather at Fenway Park today as the D-backs take on the Red Sox to protest Arizona’s Senate Bill 1070.

Peter Lowber, one of the rally organizers, had this to say:

“We think the Arizona law’s a travesty. It’s ridiculous. Our response by our politicians here in Massachusetts to the Arizona law is, ‘Oh we need some of that here in Massachusetts.’ "

Meanwhile, experts around the United States are still trying to figure out what SB1070 has to do with baseball and how boycotting MLB games changes anything in the discussion over who can and cannot be in this country.
