    How so? Los Angeles is a vastly diverse cultural city that recognizes the stupidity in the Arizona law.
    Again...if it doesn't apply to us, then we shouldn't be doing any business with them in the first place, should we.

    Thanks.

    Love,

    Im just wondering what the rest of us have to do to permanently have all of California boycott us and stay the hell in their own little 50-60 billion dollar in debt utopia.

    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 don't see how this affects us much at all economically. I think its important for our city to take a moral stand against this law. We should be keeping our money here in Los Angeles, or at least in California, rather than doing business with states that don't uphold our moral values.

    Why is the law unjust? What about it is unjust? is INS unjust when they investigate illegals? Is it unjust when you get pulled over to actually have to produce your drivers license? Is it unjust when you cash a check you have to show ID? When you fly are you incensed and outraged that you have to produce ID or (GASP) a passport if you are leaving the country?

    Good riddance. California would be better off. We have the 9th largest GNP in the world. The United States would have a difficult time surviving without us.

    Whew... I just called 14 numbers!
    Left 9 messages and the rest I conveyed my approval to the AZ 1070 decision. I also called the Phoenix PD and told them how much we appreciate their hard word and the stress they are under.

    Now we need to get the Dodgers to move their spring training back to Florida and out of Arizona.
    You can have them. You can have our illegals too. Is LA or CA making the statement that all State or Local policies should be blessed on a National basis?

    Since the boycott when enacted is going to hit the motel/food businesses in Arizona. Less demand, less jobs I guess is the goal. Looks like this will help drive out the illegals. There won't be any work for them at least in the tourist industry and ground keepings. Thank you LA and SF.

    You do know don't you that the Phoenix PD as well as most law enforcement groups across the country have denounced this law, don't you?

    Considering that a great deal of the Arizona economy depends on California, you'd better hope that not too many other California cities follow suit.
