I'm sure the stands will be full of La Raza-type Mexicans who will wave Mexican flags, boo or whistle down the US team, boo or whistle at the US anthem, throw beer on US players/fans, and cheer on the Mexican team. These are the “dreamers” and others eager to gain the benefits of US citizenship while retaining their Mexican identity, sympathies, and loyalty. I say this because that's what they've done at previous match-ups of these teams. Perhaps they will act differently now at the advice of the Leftist lawyers advising them in their push for amnesty.

Well, you have to choices: 1. go to the game and cheer for the USA, or 2. sit and whine about it.
