Activists boycott Diamondbacks-Cubs game

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago-area immigration reform activists opposed to a tough new Arizona law say they'll be back at Wrigley Field the next three days as the Cubs play the Diamondbacks.

About 40 protesters chanting "Boycott Arizona" and "Reform Not Racism" gathered Thursday afternoon.

Most fans heading into the game seemed bewildered by the protest.

Cubs fan Tom McGrath says protesting outside a baseball game made the cause seem silly.

Activists nationwide have called for a boycott of Arizona tourism and businesses, including its athletic teams. The law lets police question anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant.

In Chicago on Thursday, a lone counterprotester holding two large American flags yelled that protesting Arizona is protesting America.
