Why should there be a boycott. Georgia like some other states have had enough of the Federal government lack of enforcement of the immigration laws. The people have had enough of throwing their tax dollars out the window to non-citizens.

There's no boycott because there is no backlash. People have sat down and analyzed the message. Despite the cries of racism, xenophobia, fascism, etc, people understand that enforcing the law makes sense.

It's that simple; any attempt to obfuscate with all order of extraneous charges is falling on deaf ears.

Soon this will not even be considered controversial - it will be considered essential and wise for individual states to support and protect their law abiding citizenry from the ill advised aid and abetment offered to the illegals from the federal government.
The feds are putting a noose around their own neck with this molly coddle towards the illegal alien and the employers who hire them - the law abiding citizenry has enough evidence to convict the illegal immigration apologists at the ballot box with the vote and kick them soundly to the curb.
GET THE VOTE OUT - send these apologists out packing their bags in 2012 be it at local, state or federal level.

Why boycotts? Georgia has a HUGE gang problem with Cartel affiliations. The potential boycotts can go to a Sanctuary city if they love Illegals so much and the associated crime that goes with them. Go Georgia go!
