On April 23, 2010, Arizona Governor Janis Brewer (R) signed Senate Bill 1070, the most radical immigration legislation in the United States, effectively permitting racial profiling in the state of Arizona. The law requires police to demand immigration papers from anyone who they have a "reasonable suspicion" is in the country illegally. This blog will chronicle the major events regarding this racist and inhumane law.
We enthusiastically encourage a boycott of the State of Arizona until the law is repealed.


Revenge: CA Tea baggers Warn SF for AZ Boycott

Tea baggers show their stripes every public appearance. Their gatherings are about as diverse as a KKK meeting. If the action on Arizona accomplishes anything, it will remind the extreme right wing of the U.S. who has dominated press coverage this year what an effective protest is.

The passion they are showing for Arizona's racial profiling law demonstrates how fluid their principals really were. With all of the paranoid fantasies of a "police state," implanting microchips, and losing their government, if anything you would think they would be supporting Arizona's assault on American citizens. I would love to see a typical Teabagger's reaction if they were pulled over and asked to produce "papers."

Good luck on your racist boycott of San Francisco. They will get as much support as South Africa did in before dumping Apartheid or Arizona did before accepting Martin Luther King Day.

"California Tea Party groups are calling San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's boycott and raising him a ... boycott.

The mayor raised the ire of California Tea Partiers this week when, in response to Arizona's passage of a controversial immigration law, he announced a boycott of the state, barring San Francisco city employees from entering Arizona and threatening to cut off economic ties." (
