viva los suns!

The Phoenix Suns in Game Two of the Western Conference Semi-finals of the 2010 NBA Playoffs against the San Antonio Spurs at US Airways Center on May 5, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. The team wore ‘Los Suns’ jerseys on Cinco de Mayo in response to an anti-immigration law recently passed in Arizona.

President Barack Obama has given a shout-out to NBA’s Phoenix Suns, who are wearing jerseys that say “Los Suns” to honor the Latino community, diversity and the state of Arizona.

Obama made the remarks at the beginning of a Cinco de Mayo celebration in the Rose Garden.

The president said: “I know that a lot of you would rather be watching tonight’s game – the Spurs against ‘Los Suns’ from Phoenix.” The line drew applause from the crowd.

Arizona adopted a hard-line immigration law that cracks down on illegal immigrants. Civil rights groups say it could lead to racial profiling. Obama has called it “misguided.”
