Phyllis Schlafly: Ban Foreign Players From Major League Baseball Because They ‘Take Jobs That Ought To Go To Americans’

Yeah, that Votto guy is a menace…

“Baseball owners are doing the same thing that big corporations do: Bring in foreign labor to take jobs that ought to go to Americans. American baseball players are better, as the awards and Hall of Fame prove, but perhaps baseball owners think that foreign players are cheaper and easier to control.

It is time to cut off visas for foreign baseball players, and return our national pastime to Americans.”
