First San Francisco, now Los Angeles, Cali.

Quote:
The two council members, Ed Reyes and Janice Hahn, introduced a resolution which urges the city of Los Angeles to "refrain from conducting business with the state of Arizona including participating in any conventions or other business that requires city resources" unless the immigration law is repealed.

"It's important that the second-largest city in the country respond to a legislative act that, in essence, promotes persecution and racial profiling of a group of people that make up a large number of this country's citizenry," Reyes said.

It's probably a good idea for other reasons for California politicians to stop spending their taxpayers' money in other states.

They also need to keep some of that California money at home because they can expect a huge onslaught of new people. Since California doesn't have enough jobs to go around, they are going to be hit up for a large number of government services.

I guess LA, like SF is concerned about the thousands of illegals who will flee there once they leave Arizona.

Also the city of Los Angeles faces budget problems - so it's really not the smartest timing for more of that: "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Sure it sounds good - but how is California going to pay for them all? Some parts of California now have more than 1 out of 5 people out of work. And they want to encourage more unemployed people to move in?

Janice Hahn is a pathetic piece of garbage. The only thing she has is the name recognition she inherited from her father. As for Reyes, he's yet another Hispano-Mestizo Nationalist and is motivated by his racist views. I'm surprised Tony Villar hasn't jumped into the fray yet, but he was probably busy with a different photo op.

They're doing the exact opposite of what they should be doing if they don't WANT the illegals in Arizona moving to California.

I suspect they want them because they need some grateful voters when they can't give more unemployment extentions to their unemployed citizens.

No kidding. The LA of today is a dump compared to when I lived there in another time (and it was deteriorating then).

California better be careful. With the national support this law has, a backlash against California might be the undesired effect. For example, even though I have family in California, both North and South, I won't be going there anymore because of this. They can come visit me if they want. Although I'll probably be forced to accept a bail-out of a soon to be bankrupt California anyway.
