Why would Arizona want tourists who advocate law breaking in their state anyway? They will get twice the tourism from law abiding Americans who do give a damn about the rule of law. So stuff that in your pipe and smoke it!

Now who did you say would be freaking out about lost revenue?
Hmmm...

AZ lost revenue < money saved from enacting SB1070

CA lost revenue < money spent to support illegal immigrants new to CA from AZ

Sounds like it balances out just fine!

Arizona cost of living is way more sensible than Californias. My neighbors property taxes are $250.00 a year, and no, it isn't a truck camper on a tiny lot down by the sand wash.

The latest CNN poll shows that 82% of Americans are firmly against the boycott and will NOT participate. If L.A. really wants to boycott Arizona, then they should terminate their red light camera contracts. L.A. contracts out to Arizona for most of the cameras in the county--servicing and collecting. The Arizona company with the contract receives a portion of each paid ticket and sends the balance on to L.A. As strapped as they are for cash, do you really think they'll be terminating such a sweet deal and risk having the company come in and pull all of their cameras out of the county? Highly unlikely.

A boycott may sound politically righteous in theory (if you're in the idiotic minority who have yet to read the bill) but practically speaking, it won't really work. The economies are inextricably intertwined. This boycott is going nowhere fast.

I don't think the math favors Arizona since any benefits of the law will likely take some time and will hardly dent the economy anyway. Remember, employers readily hire illegal aliens [esp large companies\ construction & agriculture]. The immediate effects of the boycott far overshadow cost savings years from now. California does not want more illegal immigrants just like Arizona. But California does not want the Arizona law to be enforced because of violations to the constitution.

Nonsense, because this law is not in violation of the Constitution. Calif. is a lib state with many sanctuary cities and the highest number of illegal aliens in the country and a reconquista L.A. Mayor. There lies your answer. What Arizona does should be of no business to Calif. or any other state anyway.

The long term benefits of returning the state of Arizona to the rule of law are immeasurable. There are many things more important than money.

Arizona spends approximately three billion dollars per year on illegal immigrants. If they all leave, there's three billion dollars back in Arizona's coffers right there.

As far as the constitutionality of the bill?

Arizona's controversial new immigration law probably would withstand legal challenges on constitutional grounds, according to a panel of three University of San Diego law professors. Professor Lawrence Alexander, who teaches constitutional law at USD, said that argument would fail because the Arizona law does not conflict with federal immigration law. The state law is only seeking to enforce the federal law, he said.

"I don't see anything in this law that is going to fail a challenge on the grounds of federal supremacy," Alexander said. Alexander was a panelist along with professors Donald Dripps, a scholar on criminal law, and Maimon Schwarzschild, who specializes in constitutional law.

LAUSD, with it's 50% graduation rate, has a few more important things to address than boycotting AZ.

Guess that explains the ****-poor grad rate. LAUSD sucks.
