LOS ANGELES APPROVES ARIZONA BOYCOTT

Rate this Entry

The Los Angeles City Council has approved a measure barring city workers for traveling to Arizona on official business and also banning the city from contracting with Arizona businesses. Some contracts for key infrastructure items are not affected, but the LA Times estimates that the vote will cost Arizona upwards of $8 million per year. The biggest contracts not affected are those involving the airport and sea port. But the civilian panels overseeing them are considering canceling contracts worth $26 million. 

On Monday, Boulder, Colorado will vote on a similar measure. San Jose votes next month.

    Yeah and AZ is thinking of boycotting the boycotters. Can someone explain to me how that will help them??

    Cities turning against each other. This is generating hatred among people. What is federal govt doing? Sleeping? Will they only wake up when this situation gets out of hand?

    Based on their testimony and interviews, it is obvious that, like AG Holder, the L.A. Council members have not even read the law so it would not be surprising if they didn't even bother to consider whether their actions are even constitutional.

    Jack, you obviously read the bill. Out of curiosity, exactly how long (how many pages) is the AZ bill?

    Jim, the text is about 5 1/2 pages based on a 'Print Preview'. Here's the link:

    Jack conveniently forgets that the first part of this article makes it pretty clear that there can be no way of enforcing the AZ law without any racial profiling component in the "reasonable suspicion" approach.
    Whether the boycott approach taken by Cities of LA, SF etc...is constitutional or not is almost secondary when the primary legislation that provoked the bans cannot be enforced without racial profiling which is unconstitutional in the first place!
