Sound off: Should city boycotts affect Arizona’s immigration law?
Several cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, have implemented or are considering boycotts against conducting official business with Arizona in response to the state’s new law the allows law enforcement officers to demand proof of residency from people they suspect are in the country illegally. However, a spokesman for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says the boycotts are an unconstitutional blockade that will only hurt the people of Arizona.
In light of these boycotts and the impact they may have on the state’s economy, should Arizona consider amending or eliminating its new immigration law?
