Los Angeles County is joining the economic boycott over Arizona's illegal immigration law.

After a heated debate, the Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 Tuesday to ban new contracts with Arizona-based companies and review those that could be canceled.

The county has more than $26 million in contracts with Arizona companies this year.

The cities of Los Angeles, Oakland and San Francisco passed similar measures.

Blowhards.

Let's see them put their money where their mouths are and cancel the red light camera contracts which bring in millions and millions of dollars of revenue to the county every year.

What a joke. Wait until the rich people boycott California because the state wants them to pay for all the welfare programs. California will be an economic wasteland.

Much like the rest of the nation, not much is "made in " California anymore....Not buying "nothing" accomplishes " nothing....

What should we "not buy" that is produced in Your state ? And how will that solve the problem of illegal immigration ?

Let them hold their breaths for all I care.

So I guess the savings in 26 million will go towards illegals.

It might be smart to buy Mexican grown products and boycott California products. Just make sure you wash the lettuce before eating.

It's kind of ironic. Cesar Chavez organized boycotts of California products because the growers were bringing in all kinds of illegals to keep the wages way down and benefits non-existent. Now California is organizing boycotts to bring in all kinds of illegals and keep the wages way way down and benefits non-existent.
