Roy Beck of NumbersUSA Slams Santana's Baseball Game Rant!:

An Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies baseball game yesterday was used by Carlos Santana to slam those who support Georgia's new E-Verify law.

Santana was there to receive a civil rights award and took advantage of the event to push his own views on the issue.  

Roy Beck pointedly takes on the aging rocker and tells it like it is in an article at  The article, "Hate Speech against new Georgia law tarnishes Civil Rights ceremony at Braves game," is available at:

Beck vs. Santana?

My money's on Beck.

Beck makes powerful points and supports the unemployed, of whatever race, in America:

"Let's take a look at the Americans Santana is calling racist for wanting laws to keep employers from keeping Americans unemployed by hiring illegal foreign workers. 

Of young American adults aged 18-29 with only a high school degree:

  • 40% of all these young adults don't have a job.
  • 43% of the Hispanic-American young adults don't have a job.
  • 50% of Black Americans of this group don't have a job."
These statistics are quite concerning.  They indicate a fundamental problem in our nation.

Looking at Utah, how many of our young people without a high school degree are unemployed?

Are those who are defending HB116 taking these young Americans into consideration in their rush to see things from the perspective of illegal immigrants?

Or have they just pushed them out of their thoughts and concerns?
