A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 14% of Adults think itís a good idea for cities or states to join that boycott. Ten percent (10%) donít care one way or the other, and nine percent (9%) more are undecided.

Forty percent (40%), in fact, say they would avoid doing business with any city or state that boycotts Arizona. Forty-three percent (43%) disagree and would continue to do business with boycotting cities or states. Seventeen percent (17%) arenít sure.

Fifty-five percent (55%) of voters nationwide favor passage of a law like Arizonaís in their own state. When asked specifically about the chief provision of the Arizona law, support is even higher. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of voters believe a police officer should be required to check the immigration status of anyone stopped for a traffic violation or violation of some other law if he suspects the person might be an illegal immigrant.

I just came back from vacationing in Arizona, the Grand Canyon has never looked so beautiful. I dropped a couple of thousand dollars in the Arizona economy and I have several friends getting ready to head out west to do the same, screw boycotts of Arizona. The law is the same law as ever, it is just now being enforced.

The support for AZ in this issues is astounding! What is even more amazing is that the media doesnt seem to cover it-all that much. OH-they cover the poor illegals-call people against illegals racist names etc...

But in the end the people are speaking out and it is great! Better late than never. This problem has been ignored by the govt thru many presidents! Rep, dem alike-have passed legislation to allow illegals to rome freely and sack our services and resources.

You are right - and the public sits by with our finger up our ass doing nothing - while politicians on both sides have sold us down the river.

F these Illegal Aliens! This is a long time coming and a insult to all that came here legal. I wish the Government would grow some balls, and deport them all. Along with there children even if they were born here. It would lower our taxes, free up jobs, gass & food prices would drop, the list goes on and on. THANK YOU ARIZONA, for having the balls to do whatís right for us Americans!

Who cares what you think? AND with the money AZ saves by kicking you out, and the money they bring in via the BUYCOTT Az campaign, I think they'll be doing just fine. AND to show you I'm not completely heartless I learned to say goodbye in Spanish. ADIOS.

Thursday june 24th 12 noon to 2

As you all probably know by now, Sacramento passed a resolution to boycott all AZ business associations until SB1070 is repealed. Tomorrow there will be a rally to recall the city council in front of City Hall. I am attaching the web site address so you can read about it further. According to the radio show this morning on 1380, the City denied the permit to hold the rally and Paul Smith, who is running for Congress, who is putting on the rally had to get a Federal injunction against the City for denying his right to free speech, since they have already allowed 3 anti-AZ rallies.

Here is the website for news on the rally:
http://newsblaze.com/story/20100621161550zzzz...

Hope you can make it - it is at 12 noon as noted on the website.

Obama agrees with you. He shares your mantra that America is an awful Country which must be destroyed.

SO WHY DID I HEAR 95% OF the american people are against illegal aliens being in the country. and so why do only 65% want the arizona law past. someone is lieing thats why. if all the states want to pass similar laws and even better laws, then who is lieing. Well now I would have to say LA city council the mayor and B.O. People who are against the arizona law should be looked at twise. Are these people who side with terrorists, are these people who except millions of dollars from the drug cartel, who by the way are now working in the United States. So why are certain people against the law, when the rest of the majority of americans are for it. Is there a reason why cardnal mahony enjoys touching little boys and girls on there privates? answer me that.

Many feel that Californians are simply so ashamed of NOT standing up for America and American citizen families in the face of the Illegal Alien infestation that we are just too far gone to be worthy of any decent citizens admiration.

it is only natural that Proud American citizens consider the Calif. Bullys, and Boycotters nothing but unprincipled, ungrateful Trash.

Hay you know your right. just like the people in mexico who are to coward to stand up to there own government. so they run away to another country and corrupt it until laws have to be passed to get rid of them. NO AMERICAN should lose there job to an illegal alien. But we did, and now the countrys broke. But as you can see were doing something about it. It doesnt take much for 380 million americans to push back. As you can see all the states want arizonas law. And even tougher laws .

that means as a democracy all
Americans should muster around the voice, 68% is very high are the Courts now going to say that the U.S. Constitution says that Mexicans have a right to enter the nation illegally and so they are exempt I am ready for the stupidity of the U.S. Supreme Court reflecting some ideotic reasoning that this law which is a mirror of the I.N.S. law, is not Constitutional the American people are the voice of the Court We the People run this place not the Court or the President or any other single entity in America it is the whole if 68% say out Mexicans have to leave.

Americans have spoken we want the filthy leeches gone, the best way to remove the trash is to punish those who offer jobs to illegals. Shutdown the gravy train of free items - no more medical benefits, food stamps, no more of anything. The filthy bastards will leave on their own, bye bye maggot illegals.
