How did a boycot which just took effect a month ago, have an effect going back a couple of years?

And I alone will stand and notice that if the law EVER goes into effect, it will do little to reduce the number of undocumented aliens in that state.

And on the day the US Supreme court rules this Dog-of-a-law unconstitutional, I alone will pat myself on the back for a job well done.
While SB1070 may not do anything directly to secure the border, it has had an effect on border security since BO has just sent 1,200 National Guard secretaries to relieve Border Patrol Agents from paperwork so they can concentrate on enforcement.

I also heard on Phoenix TV that 100,000 illegal aliens have already left Arizona after passage of this law.

It looks like half the restaurants in Phoenix are Mexican food. The boycott will surely hurt them.

The boycott of Arizona is economic warfare. The next step is real warfare.

What you have to keep in mind is that the 1,500 (or is it 1,200?) national guard is more lip service than anything.. bush sent 5,000 national guard and it's debatable if there was any effect on illegal immigration. That was a horse and pony show to make it seem like the Fed's were doing something.

I actually agree with you. The gesture of putting 1200 troops on the border is nothing more than to appease. Until there is real border security the problem of controlling immigrants will continue.

One more factoid I left out. A Bullhead City business woman said that Memorial Day weekend was the best she had seen in years. Many CA cars here.

I am leaving on a 500 mile roundtrip to Phoenix for the big pro-SB1070 rally on Saturday. Hope some of you can make it and are prepared, like I am, for 107 degrees.

I just have to relay something that happened today in a local grocery store. I was standing at the gourmet cheese dept (yes we do have gourmet items even in hillbilly country) and some guy next to me, mentioned he was about to buy the cheese but realized it was produced in Ca and he wouldn't buy anything from Ca because to the reaction to the AZ law. At that point I choose not to use the 50 cent off coupon I had for Ca cheese as well. You may not think the boycott is spreading and backfiring but it is. So for all of you who think AZ is going to suffer unrepariable damage, you might want to re-think this.. I know I am giving a very small reaction, but if we are seeing some of this here, you can imagine how many other states are feeling the same way.
