L.A. County votes to boycott Arizona over immigration law
What does this face mean?
By a 3-2 vote, the board moves to suspend travel, terminate contracts and divest bonds. The public speaks out on both sides of the issue
By a 3-2 vote the board moves to suspend county-funded travel to the state, possibly terminate contracts with Arizona-based companies, and divest the county pension fund of Arizona state and municipal bonds. Residents attending the meeting spoke out on both sides of the issue.
After heated debate, Los Angeles County supervisors voted 3 to 2 Tuesday to boycott Arizona in response to the passage of its controversial illegal immigration law, a decision that came the same day the Los Angeles Unified School District condemned the law.
American Patrol Report Comment
Ten years ago we warned of that immigration was "threatening the bonds of our union." Now it is obvious.
If it is to survive, America must enforce its immigration laws.
The Obama administration will never seal the border, even though to do so would be a simple matter. Following Arizona's lead, other states will move to protect themselves, but there will be a fight.
Americans must now gird their loins and face this battle head-on. Nothing less than the survival of the union is at stake.
