The West Hollywood City Council has approved a resolution to boycott Arizona in response to the state's law attempting to combat illegal immigration.
The council voted 5-0 Monday night to approve the boycott. Fox11 reports the action immediately suspends official travel to Arizona and calls for developing official sanctions.

I wonder what exactly they bought from Arizona to begin with. Not surprising anyway... isn't that one of the more liberal parts of the area?

west hollywood has a very large jewish liberal population, as well as a very large gay population, at 41%.

the per capita income for the city was $38,302. About 7.3% of families and 11.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 10.0% of those under age 18 and 10.5% of those age 65 or over.

i suggest that all arizona illegal immigrants who are not happy with the "persecution" that they are facing in arizona move to the friendly city of west hollywood to get their needs met. west hollywood needs to put up or shut up.

I think they (illegals) should all move to hollywierd, and United Van Lines should do it.

More insignificance. The fact remains, the majority of Americans support the law in Arizona.

I won't be spending my gay dollars there (not that I ever did); however, I know many gays that say one thing, but do another, so I expect to see quite a few of them show up here in AZ periodically anyways...

Large Jewish liberal population? uh- no. Weho does have a large gay popul, 1/3 last time that I checked. It is also home to a significant russian immigrant popul, who occupy most of the eastside. They are quite scammy and rude. It is a sham how they were able to qualify to be citizens of this country. I would not call them "liberal" though and they are not all jewish. some claimed "persecution" from russia back in the 80s and recruited all of their families from the old country to move there off the fat of the land to qualify for welfare, food stamps, section 8, Medi-Cal, etc. The Council is made up of many gay folk and gay friendly folk, who lean Liberal. West Hollywood, though small is symbolic in the minds of some gays who lean activist imo, espec so californians.
if the illegals could find vacancies there, good luck! there is alot of competition since hetros have invaded the city in recent years. It is also VERY expensive with a not so special 1 BR apr going for at least $1200/mo last time that I checked.
