The boycott against Arizona was and is stupid. It merely mirrors the Federal law. Anyone who is against Arizona is uninformed and has not bothered to read the Arizona law.

This is so crazy. We are the UNITED STATES. Are we to be divided by ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Is the greatest nation in the world going to allow its self to be divided by people invading our nation?

Antonio Gonzales states:

"I think it's very important that Los Angeles stand proud as the anti- Arizona, the counter-narrative that celebrates the inclusion of immigrants in our society and says '(SB 1070) is not fair and we're not going to continue business as usual with the perpetrators of these policies that, in essence, create an immigrant apartheid South Africa style in our midst,'" .

Listen up Antonio, We the People of the United States of America stand proud as United Americans against the illegal invasion of OUR Country by immigrants who try to cheat and steal their way into this country.

The vast majority of AMERICANS support the great state of Arizona. The politicians are too afraid they will lose the hispanic vote if they were to come out of the closet and publicly support Arizona. Shame on them.

"We felt the spirit of the boycott of Arizona could still be preserved," she said. "This company actually pays the airport $1 million a year. The boycott was about us not giving our taxpayer dollars to the state of Arizona. It was about banning travel to the state of Arizona."

This could only come from a politician. The boycott is stupid.

Many Mexican Americans who were born and raised in Los Angeles SUPPORT ARIZONA AND SB1070. Illegals have ruined our city, over crowded our schools, shut down our health clinics, refuse to speak English. They demand free services. If they ever receive amnesty our federal budget will triple because they will use everything our country has to offer as they do now without being legal. They get cash cards, they get food stamps, free health care when legal senior citizens can't afford it now. Its time to start raiding downtown LA and using E VERIFY

I support The Az. law and yes I have read and understand the measure, and I am a child of legal immigrants and have sponsored my In-Laws as legal immigrants, and I am on the hook financially for up to 5 years if they take any gov't hand-outs.

But I like your LA law makers, again the trait of "Do as we say, not as we do" I guess You illegal aliens loose when money is involved

Typical traits of certain type of folks, change their minds

Ridiculous. You meglomanics need to chill out. All this " WE THE PEOPLE" horse crap has to stop. Support for this law is an opinion held by some, it doesnt represnt everyone, stop trying to distort it as if it does.

Support for this law is held by the majority not some.

I tell what crap that needs to stop. People like you that minimize such a crucial issue.

As much as I despise the Arizona law, do these self-righteous council member realize that when they boycott private businesses in Arizona, the ones that suffer will disproportionately be lower income minority workers, the same whose jobs they seek to preserve in CA by boycotting their own boycott in certain cases. Let's call a spade a spade; if an Arizona company is generating dollars for here, we are willing to exempt them. It is about money over principles.

The whole boycott idea is stupid and ridiculous on the first place. We're just making California a safe haven for illegal immigrants.

BY boycotting Arizona you will be helping the unemployement rate go sky high. There are a few other states that have the same law, why arent we boycotting them? I thought American was a free country, and the people had the right to vote on the laws. But when they do, the government has to get involved. Why the hell do we vote? I thought the people had a voice. I guess not. when the people use there voice they get boycotted.. Why the hell is California getting involved in Arizona's laws, we have enough of our own problems. I myself have been refused work in my own country cause I dont speak spanish, is that not against the law. But when I raise that point I was called a racist. This is America, Speak english, California DMV wastes millions of dollars having drivers books and tests made in at least 14 different languages, WHY? all the sign's and alerts are in english. if they cant read or speak english why post the alerts or have signs????

The City Council have more pressing issues to deal with but there was Janis Hahn (as usual) grand standing now she's trying to cover her ass for the stupid boycott she helped write. Its about time LA started voting these council members out of office the whole city needs a change from the Mayor on down
