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."
