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We enthusiastically encourage a boycott of the State of Arizona until the law is repealed.


Call League of Arizona Cities and Towns NOW

The League of Arizona Cities and Towns is asking you not to boycott their state for it's racist legislation. Unfortunately they make no calls to the legislators who they are up the street from who are most responsible for the boycott. The boycott is obviously having an early effect. Make a call to the Arizona League of Cities and Towns and ask them to lobby the Arizona state government to repeal SB 1070 now.

"The implementation of an economic boycott to any degree will result in an inverse outcome, hurting small business, local governments and most importantly our residents...

However, to isolate Arizona's constituency via boycott tactics is an unacceptable, misdirected response, given that this issue will continue to evolve and re-form into the future. We respectfully ask you to refrain from implementing boycott resolutions, as they are an assault on local government and residents with unintended socioeconomic consequences."
