A radical open-borders group known as the “New York Immigration Coalition” (or to be precise, the N.Y. Illegal Immigration Coalition) is organizing a protest on Thursday (July 8th) against Major League Baseball, which is scheduled to hold the 2011 All-Star game in Arizona. The Arizona-bashers will head to MLB’s Park Avenue headquarters to demand that the venue be changed:
Rally Urging MLB to Move 2011 All-Star Game Out of Arizona!
Thursday, July 8, 2010
It’s time to send a message to Arizona: we oppose the un-American law (SB1070) that threatens civil rights and undermines basic notions of fairness. We call on Major League Baseball to do the same by moving the 2011 All-Star Game OUT of Arizona!
Join us for an exciting rally on Thursday July 8th outside the Major League Baseball Headquarters in New York City!
WHAT: Rally to move the 2011 MLB All-Star Game out of Arizona and protest Arizona’s anti-immigrant laws
WHEN: Thursday, July 8, 2010, 12 noon (please arrive at 11:45am)
WHERE: 245 Park Ave @ 46th Street (MLB Headquarters)
WHY: Moving the 2011 All-Star game from Phoenix, AZ will send the message that baseball, the quintessential American sport, will not accept the un-American treatment of its players or its fans.

No word on where they want the game moved. Perhaps a cash-starved, ailing illegal alien sanctuary city such as Maywood, CA?
