Today, I heard that a high school in Illinois is not letting its girl’s basketball team participate in a basketball tournament in Arizona. What would cause them to make a decision like this?
Simply and logically put, POLITICS!
These girls our being used to spread a few people’s opinions about the illegal immigration law that Arizona just signed. Basketball has absolutely nothing to do with the illegal immigrant issue. And the administration at the school wants to defend their decision by stating that they are afraid of what might happen.
This is ludicrous!
This has nothing to do with the safety of the girls or for the school. It has to do with the agenda of some of the administration and how they feel about the immigration law. They want to boycott Arizona, plain and simple. I say, fine. You stay out of Arizona, administration. I am sure Arizona would be happy to know that you were nowhere near its borders.
As for these girls, they need to find a way to get to the tournament that they have worked so hard for.
