Tony LaRussa supports Ariz. immigration law 

ESPN has the Cooperstown-bound manager’s thoughts on the Arizona illegal immigration bill:

La Russa says Arizona has a problem that the national government has failed to remedy. The manager, who lives in northern California, spoke this week before a game in St. Louis between the Cardinals and Arizona Diamondbacks.

“I’m actually a supporter of what Arizona is doing,” La Russa said. “If the national government doesn’t fix your problem, you’ve got a problem. You’ve got to fix it yourself. That’s just part of the American way.”

U.S. Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.) has asked baseball commissioner Bud Selig to pull the 2011 All-Star Game from Phoenix in protest of the law, which allows police to check the immigration status of those already arrested or detained.
