I don't believe there has to be a backlash. California is going to see a flood of people coming over. The politicians have put the word out that any illegal will be given the red-carpet welcome, the arms of the California politicians are open and eager to embrace all who will come.

Illegals will scratch off Arizona and head on straight to California, and illegals fearful of Arizona laws are right now packing their bags and looking for the fastest route to California.

The California politicians will soon be busy enough finding the money for the additional social services they'll soon have to have and figure out what to do with millions of people coming to a state with very high unemployment.

One question---If CA doesn't buy electricity from AZ, where will they get it? Where can they go to replace that loss?

If they do get electricity from AZ then for a true boycott, the California politicans would have to tell their voters that it's going to be lights out for a while.

Other states have a right to express their opinion, but to take an action, such as a boycott, against another state is akin to Mexico's president demanding the US pass laws favorable to illegal Mexican aliens. It's none of his business what laws the US chooses to adopt, and enforce, regarding illegal immigration, and it's no other state's business what laws Arizonsa chooses to implement.

Yes, that would be a lot like some city politicians in Texas insisting they have a right to override the governor of Michigan on policies they don't like.

It's hardly constitutional that local politicians in one state have anything to say regarding the state laws of another state.
