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!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.
