Robert Menendez doesn't represents the American people.

He represents illegal aliens.

If I could go I would go! All AZ is doing is enforcing a law on a state level that is a federal law that the feds have not enforced since the 1990's.

No one who was going to attend the All Star game will listen to a word Menendez says. Their boycott will be as successful, as the call for people to boycott the state. Democrats live in a little blue bubble that floats above the Universe.

I went to an Astros game against the Diamondbacks because of the "boycott". Yep, even got myself a hat! I had a good time harassing some protestors too. They really didn't like it when I told a group of them that the country really doesn't need any more uneducated peasants. They don't get what so many of us do.

Funny, but I asked a cop if he wasn't tempted to use his gun. His response, "no comment."

So does this childish anti-American Menendez have a clue how many players both in the majors and minors are Latino? Oh, the liberal irony of it all.

Love the Twins, but my second fav team JUST became the AZ Diamondbacks.

Menendez and his ilk have become the enemy from within, destroyers of the Constitution, traitors, sell outs and unamerican.

They would rather coddle and protect the Illegal alien invaders than to enforce the Immigration laws that protects America, Americans and our sovereignty ....

The are responsible for the Illegal alien invasion. They are responsible for the murders of 15-25 Americans EVERY day by the Illegal alien invaders.

The are a clear and present danger to America, Americans and the rule of law.

So why doesn't Mendez call for a boycott of the Washington Nationals? Washington D.C.'s immigration laws contain EXACTLY THE SAME language as Arizona's law! In fact, Washington D.C.'s laws existed first!! C'mon, Mendez, be consistant!
Or be a hypocrite.

Menendez is not the only one:

"An Arizona sheriff said today that he has 'no intention of complying' with the state's controversial new immigration law, calling it 'abominable' and a 'national embarrassment.'

"....
The defiance by Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik was perhaps the sharpest rebuke to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer for signing into law last Friday a bill that empowers police in the state to stop people they suspect may be illegal immigrants and demand identification."

Dupnik needs to remember that Sheriff is an ELECTED position.
He'll need votes if he wants to keep his job.
His refusal will be remembered at the polls.

I am so sick and tired of these senators with an "agenda" of their own. Please write to your congressman and senators and tell them how you support this law. These "special interest" groups are distroying what our men and women have fought for for years. People!!! remember it is not about racial profiling--its about being in this country legally!!!! I think Jan Brewer is the only politician in the US that has the balls to stand up and "do the right thing!!!" Our representatives should be concerned about protecting us--Madam Governor--please think about running for president. You will have my support!! Good job and well done

They can change their shirts to Los Diamondbacks.
Will that make all the wet-backs and bleeding heart liberals happy?
