They can not go to Arizona on OFFICIAL BUSINESS(of the state). As has been explained many times.

Gavin Newsom is famous for pulling publicity stunts.

But to answer your question, right from Article 1 of the 14th Amendment: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

The way I read it, the mayor of SF has violated constitutional law. It's not the first time he's thumbed his nose at both CA and US law for a photo op.

No he hasn't violated consitutional law, in any shape or form. Going to any place you want on the state's dime, is not a "priviledge or immunity of a US citizen".

I agree with you about using the public dime and business trips, but I was responding to a post that claimed they weren't allowed to use their paid vacation in Arizona.

Arizona can do what they want, until this law is found unconstitutional that is, but in the meantime...make them pay for it..

Very true! If there are no jobs, there will be no incentive to come here. But try telling the wealthy they have to hire legal immigrants to raise their children, landscape their yards, cook their food, pick their produce, clean their homes etc.
