Los Suns: The Latest Example Of Why Sports Should Stay Out Of Politics....

Welcome to the age of politics invading everything you ever held sacred. I like many consider sports an escape from the harsh realities of our times, yet somehow we have an event or action which causes the spectrum's of the two to collide causing mass discussion around the country and worldwide.

The latest clash is the latest legislation passed in the state of Arizona which could be considered the toughest measure in American history against illegal immigrants, directing local police to determine whether people are in the United States illegally.

To say simply that the country does not have an illegal immigration problem is simply foolish, we do need to do something to correct this problem. I think we simply just cannot open the borders to everyone who wants to come in because that simply will create more problems than create more good for the country.

However, sports should really keep their noses out of this political issue because it simply does nothing to either fight or further the cause. I came to this opinion after seeing last night's San Antonio Spurs/Phoenix Suns match up last night where the team from "The Copper State" sported their alternative Los Suns jerseys for the game.
