Palin says Illinois school should play in Arizona

Posted: Updated:

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has railed against a suburban Chicago high school for skipping a girls' basketball tournament in Arizona because of concerns over that state's new immigration law.

Palin said Wednesday night that people should help the Highland Park team get to Arizona even if the girls have to "go rogue."

Palin says an economic and political boycott of Arizona is not the way to secure the country's borders.

But district assistant superintendent Suzan Hebson says the trip "would not be aligned with our beliefs and values."

Players in the northern Chicago suburb had been selling cookies to raise money to travel to the December tournament. They found out about the decision Monday.
