Yeah, not like they are currently doing such a good job at it or anything.

Yes, because that has been working so well up until they wrote the law in AZ. Duh! Hasn't 'the nation' been expecting the feds to do their job in keeping illegals out of our country? What a farce.

AZ is not going to drop the law - they are going to reap billions in money saved by purging their state of illegals - these pathetic "boycotts" are not going to have the effect that the hispandering ethnocentric tribalists are hoping for. And poll after poll, the evidence is that the majority of Americans are FOR the AZ law, and AGAINST boycotts of AZ.

I just heard on Fox news that the California legislature just voted to boycott Arizona over the immigration law that they,(Arizona) passed.
Well Arizona sells California electricity and by law they cannot refuse to sell the electricity to California, but they can set the price.
I think if Caliweirdo wants to boycott Arizonia's immigration law, they,(Arizonia) should charge Caliwierdo $1,000,000 a kilowatt for it and see how long all of those ILLEGAL ( put in caps as some do not understand the meaning) aliens enjoy swealtering in the heat.

Let's hope they start putting their money and their votes where there mouths are! Otherwise, I think free transportation should be provided from Arizona to the public Malibu Beaches in front of all those Hollywood Homes, where tents can be put up for the Illegals that the Hollywood Set are so prone to defend. Second stop - Sacramento!

It's amazing the poll got as high a number as it did in support of the law, considering it was taken by the Los Angeles Times, and the University of Southern California, both very liberal.

I am not sure I would want them to put hospitals at risk, but I agree with you that AZ should raise the price to the roof for our electricity. We do have to make up for the boycotts and income lost to AZ. Right? Great post.

My wish would be for Tom Hanks to go out to get his morning paper and step in a pile of poop and look upon the sight of those campers on his lawn.

Hey, that's interesting that some of the Californians who came to AZ were left-wing too. I knew that many right-wing Arizonans came (partly because they were fed up with California)

I do think that in a fiscal sense, Arizona would be better off if it had passed less contentious or less contestable anti-illegal immigration legislation or at least legislation that had been well-designed to the start (the last-minute changes that were made after the bill was announced told me that the Arizona government members did not give proper preparation to the bill). For instance there's a thread about Massachusetts passing anti-illegal legislation, and I don't see a lot of controversy in the media about it.

Phoenix came close, while both Tucson and Flagstaff are generally considered left-leaning. If McCain had not been from AZ and had not run for president, AZ most likely would've become a blue state. In addition, "Texas conservative" is much different from "Arizona conservative" as Arizona is more of a fiscally conservative state with a live-and-let-live environment. The issue with illegal immigration in AZ has more to do with common sense (reducing crime, tired of flipping the bills for illegals, securing the borders) rather than being a state that doesn't encourage any types of immigrants (legal that is).

Amazing really, considering California is taking the brunt of the infiltration of illegals and all they do to destroy a state.
Not so amazing really. As long as the "Governator" gives his tacit approval for the political sub-divisions of his state to wage economic warfare against another state by doing nothing to quash this stupidity, then the entire state of California must suffer the brunt of his inaction. What the people want is irrelevant. It is what the State does, or fails to do, that matters.

California may have the economic clout to harm Arizona, but I can assure you the nation will make a much bigger economic dent on California. I, for one, will not be spending well over $1,000/year in California on fruits, vegetables, TV, movies, or wine. I have recently learned that Arizona's Verde Valley makes decent wine, so I will give it a try.
