 The city of San Francisco took action against the state of Arizona Tuesday in response to the governor there signing a controversial immigration law last week. … San Francisco city leaders Tuesday afternoon kicked off a boycott against the state of Arizona that has some SF business interests concerned. … San Francisco Supervisor David Campos also introduced legislation that would ban new contracts and examine existing contracts with Arizona-based companies.

I’m sure the Arizonans will be disappointed that left-wing extremists might not pour into their state at prior rates.

Additionally, this gives the state government of Arizona the opportunity to be gracious and magnanimous. Instead of responding with a similar boycott of San Francisco, they should take a tip from South Park… and start a free charter bus service for illegal aliens straight to SF. Let them know about all the welfare goodies they can obtain in SF, how the California gun laws leave the citizens of that state virtually defenseless compared to the citizens of Arizona, how San Fran refuses to work with the feds on rounding up illegals, etc.

It’s a win-win.

BONUS: a list of “sanctuary cities” that provide protection for foreign criminals. Several in Arizona. Perhaps the AZ state government might save a step and simply release concicted criminals from foreign lands directly into these cities.

    Thanks for the list of sanctuary cities.

    It’s a good article, and I’ve passed the links on to the usual victims.

  • When Shakira stated “that I am pretty much undocumented” is absolutely ridiculous. She came to our country with documents. When entering into the United States legitimately you must show your passport, which Shakira certainly did. By challenging Arpaio to come and get her because she left her passport at her 5 star hotel clearly indicates Shakira does not understand the Arizona Senate Bill 1070. By Shakria not carrying her passport or identification does not mean she will be arrested. One must engage in illegal activity to be arrested and asked for identification, which most likely Shakira will not be engaging in illegal activity. For someone to rally other individuals without fully understanding the SB 1070 is irresponsible. People (including Shakira) need to take the time to fully understand the law before grand standing to an audience who expects her to be informed. Shakira should respect the United State’s freedom of speech and should be fully educated on the law before leading an emotional charged crowd. This law is not new, it is enforcing what is already in place by the Federal Government. It is a Federal crime to be an illegal alien thus the term “illegal alien.” Crime has become an increasing problem in Arizona. The law is designed to punish criminals for being criminals not for being illegal immigrants. Which all members of our community should embrace. If the Federal Government would take illegal immigration seriously there could be alternatives for this law. But the Federal Government ignored Arizona’s immigration problem and decided they could not rely on the Federal Government for help. Arizona’s actions are directed against the members of the immigrant community that are criminals. Anyone, citizen or non-citizen, should agree that the increased violence around our boarders needs to be addressed. Immigrants and citizens need to work together to reduce crime. Shame on you Shakria for further inflaming a passionate subject that should be addressed rationally. Shame on you everyone else for not educating yourself on the SB 1070. For those of you that want to be educated you can read the full law here
