The city of Los Angeles — which is inundated with illegals — has voted to boycott the state of Arizona over the latter’s new immigration law. The law merely enables Arizona to enforce the federal immigration laws that the feds refuse to enforce. (Don’t be a MSM-brainwashed robot, read the actual facts on Arizona’s law HERE.)
As reported by Nick Allen of the UK’s Telegraph,
The Los Angeles City Council voted 13-1 to stop from conducting business with Arizona unless the law is repealed. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has already said he will approve the boycott which could affect contracts for airport, harbour and trucking services. The council will also consider suspending travel of its employees to Arizona, and refraining from making any new ones.
The resolution claims that Arizona’s new law encourages racial profiling and is unconstitutional. In so doing, Los Angeles joines several other cities across America which have passed similar resolutions but L.A. is the largest city yet to boycott Arizona, with $52 million worth of contracts with the state.
Excuse me for asking: But isn’t Los Angeles cutting off its nose to spite its face, given the parlous economic circumstances of the state of California, including Los Angeles?
California’s 2010 budget is already $20 to $40 billion in the hole, requiring a new round of cuts of entire programs. As an article in Uncoverage.net points out, “California is on the cliff’s edge.” While Demonrat officials in California ( the mayors of San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, the State Senate president pro temp) continue their time-wasting “Boycott Arizona” blather, why don’t they pay attention to how many companies and jobs are leaving the state?
In the years 1990-2007, California has lost 25% of its manufacturing jobs. As many as 129 companies had left the state for greener pastures due to its hostile tax, environmental and business climate. Joseph Vranich, the Business Relocation Coach, has compiled a list of 129 companies that have left or “de-invested” in California — a list that the California state government conveniently does not provide. For the long alphabetical list of companies that have left California, from Abraxis Health to a Yahoo data center that was installed in Quincy, Washington, go to http://www.uncoverage.net/2010/05/ca-1990-2010-jobs-and-businesses-leave-the-state/.
We must stand with Arizona!
The Dallas Tea Party, Arizona Tea Party Patriots, Tea Party Patriots, and many other organizations are supporting a buycott in Arizona and are hosting a rally on Saturday, May 29th, Memorial Day Weekend.
For more information, go to StandWithArizona.org. From their website:
Arizona is under heavy fire from the left-wing bullies for tryign to protect its own citizens from the ravages of illegal immigration. The entire state is being attacked as “racist,” “nazi,” and “extremist.” The left-wing bullies believe they can target, isolate and neutralize Arizona, and thereby pressure the people of Arizona to stop enforcing the law. It’s time for all of us to…
STAND WITH ARIZONA!
On Saturday, May 29th, patriots from across the United States will be coming together in Tempe to Stand With Arizona and against the left-wing bullies. You are hereby invited to JOIN US on May 29th at Diablo Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.
