Phoenix Suns To Wear 'Los Suns' Jerseys
STEVE INSKEEP, host:

This holiday celebrates a victory by the Mexican army. And on this Cinco de Mayo, the Phoenix Suns turn their jerseys Spanish. The Arizona team is responding to Arizona's immigration law. That controversial law aims at illegal immigrants, but raises concerns of racial profiling. The team says it wants to honor our Latino community. So in a playoff game, players will wear the words Los Suns.
It's MORNING EDITION.
