Immigrant-rights advocates are planning to protest the Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Phoenix next week, citing Arizona's controversial immigration law, which they say is anti-immigration.

Advocates have launched the "Unite AZ: We Are All Stars Campaign," asking others to wear white ribbons and "take a stand against divisive, hate-based legislation" on game day.

Enrique Morones, from the non-profit, immigration rights group Border Angeles told the San Diego Union Tribune that  "we're outraged, don't support Major League Baseball. They didn't support us."

This segment aired on July 6, 2011.
