Dont you realize thats the purpose of a boycott. To place presure on the State to make the State to make the change.

Ain't gonna happen. Arizona will stick with this law unless or if it gets overturned. The boycott is dumb because it hurts everyone including Hispanic citizens and the illegal aliens who are working in that state. Sounds like cutting off one's nose to spite one's face.

Boycotts are not inherently nice or beneficial to any party involved.

Again, clearly, the radical left (marxists, socialists) amnesty democrats and the pro illegal open border lobby and other ethnocentric groups plus the far left media are pulling the strings creating this hysteria about Arizona's new law in an attempt to prevent other states from considering joining the bandwagon of states with new laws similar to Arizona's new law. The radical left wing marxist, socialist amnesty democrats pull the strings and the left wing sheeple only ask how high to jump. If a bunch of states jumped out and passed a similar Arizona law it would be impossible for the Washington traitors to continue using the misguided argument. Perhaps the Washington traitors would finally consider securing the border, enforcing immigration laws, all without any amnesty.

Opposition to the AZ immigration bill will not be the proximate cause of lack of fans at Dback games, although demagogues will certainly try to skew it that way.

Spot on. All this flamboyant posturing is to scare other states from trying the same thing. The thing is, a candidate for Georgia governor pledges he would push for it in his state.

They really need to keep goin' on like the crying Wombats they are. I literally am feeling re-energized about the issue. I didn't support going to certain extremes to fight illegals but now I'm reassessing my views. I now feel we should instrument a massive national deportation program. All Visa holders need to be tracked aggressively. When birthright citizenship is eradicated, I now feel that all current birthright children should have their citizenship repealed. Mandatory jail time(6 months) and lifetime barring from ever entering the United States for people caught trying to get in or are in the country illegally. Good job guys....

I agree but; needless to say: any Anchor age 18 or above should be grandfathered in as a US citizen (but its illegal alien parents would still need to leave)

Oh I can see it now. Die hard baseball fans will not attend games because illegals and their supporters feel miffed. Oh wait that is about as likely as seeing pigs grow wings.

Hey. Someone bolded in red "national deportation program". I am offended. My favorite color is blue not red. Deport, deport, deport, deport, deport....
Oh, by the way. I look hispanic, was married to a Mexican female, and deplore racist people. Hitler was a blubbering, weak, cowering scum. I support affirmative action. I am an avid supporter of the environment. I believe in gay rights. I hope all nazi's, white supremacists and the KKK all rot in the lowly crab infested bowels of hell. Spanish is a beautiful language. These are all true, so what does that make me? I absolutely support the stabilization of the American culture and the English language in this country. I support enforcing immigration laws. I'm sorry but I can't help but to hate all these people supporting illegal immigration. I feel this way because I know in this day and age the reasons people support this disease are racial and/or financial in nature. For these donkeys to actually physically threaten Americans is the line last crossed. This war is close to an end. Demographic facts are in my favor. (Birth Rate). hahahaha
