    So you are proud of your hometown lying to the public and punishing a state in the name of partisanship? Los Angales has no right to step in and try to twist Arizona's arm over a good law. They may have the legal right, but they are using it and acting like partisan children. They are lying to the public and hurting a state over an issue that doesn't apply to them.

    That's all fine and well except these aren't "people". These are our elected officials throwing a priss fit with our money and trying to use our taxes to hurt another state.

    I'm not ok with that.

    I don't think this is good policy, but they have the right.

    How is it a productive use of our city officials' time and resources to throw a butthurt tantrum over something going on in Arizona? In case you hadn't noticed, our city is bankrupt as it is and should be making decisions based on economics, not what leverage they can hold over another state.

    If we weren't in economically dire straits right now, I would less problem with it. But that's not the case and it's idiotic stunts like this rather than actually showing the care to govern that got us here in the first place.

    I doubt the boycott will cost Los Angeles much money. To begin with, just contract some other state.

    For all we know, it is a pretense to get out of economic relations with Arizona while 'keeping a moral high ground'.

    If they are exploring ways to cancel millions in contracts without incurring legal problems, then they are already spending money paying city attorneys to make those inquiries.

    That's fine if the bid is lower. Right now, every decision needs to be based on cost and the city's abyssmal budget shortfalls, not on what Arizona's immigration stance is.

    The bid would undoubtedly be lower now, since Arizona's work will no longer be done by illegal aliens. LOL.

    Public attorneys get paid no matter what they are doing and already tend to be vastly overworked, especially in California. I doubt they'll hire new ones, they'll just displace the existing case loads among the already existing pool.

    They probably already know it is.

    These are just ignorant a-holes that think that everything is racist and that we can't do anything that proportionately affects minorities more negatively than whites, even if it is just defending current law.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
