KSDK -- Cardinals Manager Tony LaRussa says he stands behind what Arizona is doing in terms of immigration.

During an interview before tonight's game against the Diamondbacks, he had little to say when asked about a contingency from the local Tea Party that planned to show its support for Arizona and its controversial new immigration law in the stands.  In fact, he said he didn't even know they were coming.

LaRussa did say he felt any kind of political demonstrations being made in the stands would be easy for his team to ignore. 

He also voiced his support for Arizona's new approach to immigration. "This is America. You are supposed to have opinions and disagree," he said.  "I'm actually a supporter of what Arizona is doing... you know if people don't fix their problems they have to take care of it themselves."
