AZ's passage of a controversial anti-immigration law could cost the state Major League Baseball's All-Star Game, potentially depriving an already battered economy of millions of dollars.

A New York congressman who called for the league to move the 2011 game from Phoenix is the latest person to push for an economic boycott against the state in protest of the new law. Companies have been pulling conferences out of Arizona resorts while others have suggested consumers shun companies, such as US Airways, that are based in the state and have yet to condemn the the law.

All these boycotts could cost many illegals their jobs. Where do you think they work?

Not sure where they work in AZ since it's a big dry desert.
However, I'm pretty sure the legal immigrants will not be effected.

In any case pressure needs to be applied to AZ to repeal their racist laws.
