ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW COULD COST US WORLD CUP

Rate this Entry

The Arizona Republic reports that US bid to host the 2018 World Cup may be jeopardized by plans to include the University of Phoenix Stadium as one of the venues. This quote from the story caught my attention:

'We've got 18 cities that are part of the bid, and it's a long way between now and 2018 or 2022,' U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati said last week when asked if Arizona wouldn't be included in the bid. 'At this point I think it'd be premature to make any decisions given the fact that the law is being challenged in a number of ways both legally and obviously in public opinion.'

At first glance, it sounds like Gulati is saying that the Arizona law is no big deal. But reading between the lines, he seems to be warning Arizona that the World Cup is at risk if the courts or the voters don't get rid of SB1070.

    I disagree. Only dark/brown skinned ones will be asked. White people won't have problems.

    Same way people perceives that only certain races are illegals, terrorists, possible visa-overstayers, etc...

    May be they should send Ms. OK to appeal our case!
