Most illegal alien advocates usually bypass any truth and fact to perpetuate their "cause" thus leaving us scratching our heads. Well, when the Axe falls, they'll be the ones scratching.

Are Arizona businesses also going to boycott all the other American cities who have called for a boycott or are in the planning stages? Boston\ New York\ Washington DC\ Milwaukee, etc. The list keeps growing along with the anxiety of Arizona businesses.

Arizona is a little state with very little influence when compared to California. Do you honestly believe that California is one bit concerned about a few businesses in Arizona?

Did you even read the article either? The point is not to boycott California. The point is if California wishes to attack Arizona's new immigration law, they should do it with dialog, not boycotts, but Arizona will take its business elsewhere and encourage its residents to as well if needed.

California better be concerned. Why I say that is think of the 'canary' (Arizona) in the 'coal mine' (growing public anger across the USA against illegal immigration) and the possible impending explosion (overt prejudice against anybody who looks 'Latino') could be extremely ugly. Read that the illegals best leave NOW-----------no questions asked. Things will become much more vicious soon.

BTW: I live here in Arizona the prejudice against at least illegal aliens from Mexico, is growing---------if my conversations with people here are accurate.

Yes; I am starting to become worried that true blue Americans who look stereotypically 'Latino' (of any actual race/ethnicity) may wind up paying for the sins of the border hoppers.

I'm sorry to read your words. Obviously this is something that concerns you. But you don't take things into your own hands. It isn't smart. Remember how the South was straighten out over their prejudice\ mistreatment of Blacks? The moral outrage alone would only worsen against Arizona. What I do think needs to be done is for congress\ president Obama to take more leadership. Once the border is secured there will not be any more problems.
