    Boston councilors OK resolution to boycott Arizona

    link

    BOSTON—The Boston City Council approved a resolution Wednesday that urges the city to curtail economic ties with Arizona by pulling investments, ending city contracts and halting purchasing agreements to protest the state's recently passed immigration law.

    The resolution, passed by a voice vote, also asks city employees not to travel to Arizona for city business.

    "We're asking that the people's money, the people of the city of Boston ... that their money (not) be used to support something like this," said Councilor Felix G. Arroyo, who co-wrote the resolution with City Council President Michael Ross.
    Time to boycott Boston? I hate to say it because I am a native New Englander and love the city, but this is just stupid and misguided. Boston is on the side of the illegal immigrants!

    Well you're talking about their voter base or future voter base here... they're going to defend it and the hell with the Laws. These are "in the bag" Democrat voters we're talking about here.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Does this mean that no Red Sox players will play in the All Star Game?

    Conservatives: Supporters of state and local power, except when it disagrees with them.

    Why shouldn't Boston be able to do what they want in this case?

    They can. And they reserve the right to be complete morons.

    And that includes the lying newspaper:

    , which requires police to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally

    Another lie by the liberal media. They fail to mention the police have to be engaged in a lawful action that has nothing to do with immigration before they can ascertain legal status.

    Of course, this DOES come from the state that was home to the famously intolerant Puritans... Great history the Bay State has...

    And why shouldn't people who support our nation's laws decide they want to boycott Boston?
