Protesters Gather At Red Sox Game

BOSTON (AP) – A coalition of immigrant groups are planning a

protest outside Fenway Park as the Red Sox begin a three-game

series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Tuesday's picketers are voicing their opposition at stadium

entrances and holding signs to protest Arizona's controversial new

law targeting illegal immigrants.

The law, set to take effect July 29, requires police conducting

traffic stops or routine questioning to ask about immigration

status if officers suspect those being questioned are in the

country illegally.

The Diamondbacks have faced similar protests in Chicago, Miami

and Los Angeles.

The law has sparked protests and calls for boycotts of Arizona

products, including a recent call to move next year's baseball

All-Star game from Phoenix.
