Does Sergio Romo Look Illegal to You?

This was the scene yesterday, during the San Francisco Giants World Series victory parade.

From “The Splash” blog on

“In between bounding out of his car and high-fiving fans, TV cameras caught Giants closer Sergio Romo wearing a shirt that said, “I just look illegal.”

Romo, who is of Mexican descent, was born in Brawley, Calif., less than 30 miles from the Mexican border. Growing up, he crossed the border to play baseball in Mexicali during the winter.”

The Latino pitcher hasn’t commented on the shirt yet, but we’re not sure that he needs to.  It’s pretty obvious where he stands on anti-immigrant laws like Arizona SB 1070 and its copycats.

Romo’s shirt certainly adds some levity to the very serious issue of immigration, but it’s also a great reminder that these laws are still on the books.  These laws have to go yesterday!

So, Romo only looks illegal.  What about the folks in the video below?  Do they look illegal?
