Those of you on the vine know that I am a liberal. However, I am tired of everyone bashing our state because of illegal immigration and the new law. I feel that people are misinterpreting what is happening here in Arizona. I have a question for those of you who are against the new law. How would you feel about the federal government paying for all of the expenses that our state incurs because of illegal immigrants? Would you say, no problem as long as our state gets rid of the new law? Or, would you object to that idea as well? What do you think is the answer to stopping illegal immigration or should we just let anyone come into our state without documentation?
At any rate, I have made my own list of cities (and probably the entire states) that I am boycotting! We are being punished for something that we never voted for or asked for. By the way, you are not only punishing our state, but the LEGAL Hispanic citizens who work here in Arizona and who own small businesses. Just a little food for thought.
Here is my current list.
LOS ANGELES, CA
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
MILWAUKEE, WI (they tried to pass a boycott, but failed)
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA
ST. PAUL, MN
NEW YORK CITY, NY (they considered it)
I would suggest that anyone who agrees with me that this law is NOT racial profiling and that, although this law is not perfect, we need to do something to stop illegal immigration, to join me in my boycott. Thank you.
