Los Angeles Boycotts Arizona

La Opinión, Posted: May 12, 2010

LOS ANGELES--The city of Los Angeles agreed yesterday to declare a boycott against the state of Arizona, reports La Opinión. The boycott signals the city's rejection of the recently approved Arizona Senate Bill 1070, which makes it as a state misdemeanor crime for an immigrant to be in Arizona without carrying legal documents.

The city of Los Angeles will suspend business with Arizona and will not sign any new contracts to doing business with that state.

Other components of the boycott will not go into effect immediately, but must first pass through the Committee on Information, Technology and Government Affairs to determine which and how many city contracts may be terminated.

The day after Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed SB 1070 into law, La Opinión published an editorial calling for a national boycott of Arizona.

Onti, what do you mean you have nothing to worry about? What about the first time the cop says: What papers did you give me? You didn't give me anything. To the back of my car Mojado! yeah, idiot, you got nothing to worry about, except being stopped every time you drive, or every time you walk, or every time you look brown. You're a dumass, you don't know history. You're a total moron.

I was pulled over this morning for running a stop light. Had to show my driver's license, registration, and insurance card. If I hadn't had them they would have run wants and warrants on me. As it was, I had it all and I am pretty sure they ran wants and warrants on me anyway. They then gave me a ticket and told me not to run any more stop signs. It isn't the first time anyone checked my paperwork.

I think AZ should pull the plug on LA. Let's see what they think about sitting in the dark.

I just have to put this out there for everyone who doesn't understand how AZ works, no i am not defending them just explaining a little about how their minds work. First off, a bill gets passed every time they get a chance to limit or or inconvenience immigrants. No one ever noticed till now because they never followed through with their passed legislation. For example, do you know how many times they tried to make english a required language? Every chance they got, but not once did they ever follow through with it. Thats just how they work. They pass certain laws, the old folks say, "finally!" and everyone pretends it was never passed to begin with.

I am hispanic, and in no way does the new Arizona SB1070 come across as racist. If you are not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.
