Julio Varela started this petition to MLBPA Major League Baseball Players Association

Arizona has literally become the police state for Latino Americans in the United States and the vast majority of undocumented individuals who struggle each day to achieve the American dream.

With the All-Star Game being played this year in Phoenix, we are urging the Major League Baseball Players Association to send a visual and powerful message to show their opposition to SB1070, an anti-immigrant, anti-Latino law that is dividing Arizona and this country.

Latinos make up for 27% of all the players in MLB today. These players predominantly come from places such as the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Mexico, and Central America—the very same places where others risk their lives to achieve their dreams in the United States.

MLB Latino ballplayers are blessed: not only do they are blessed to play a boy's game and make millions, they are also not threatened by laws such as SB1070. Or are they? It's time to TAKE A STAND AND SEND ARIZONA A MESSAGE. Follow the legacy of Jackie Robinson and Roberto Clemente. Stop injustice!
