Skip to comments.Cancel Arizona travel, Minneapolis mayor urges
Posted on 04/30/2010 5:34:23 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak has urged department heads and other city officials to cancel any pending official travel plans to Arizona in the wake of new immigration legislation in that state.
Rybak urged city officials to find alternate ways of accomplishing the same business ends without traveling to the state. Arizona law makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally and authorizes police officers to ask people for proof of citizenship and hand illegal immigrants over to federal enforcers.
This is a terrible law, and I do not want any public dollars to be spent there, Rybak said. Furthermore, I am deeply concerned that this terrible policy could put our city employees who might be traveling there on official business at risk of being unlawfully racially profiled, detained or harmed.

How about we cancel our MN travel.
I would urge a boycott of Minneapolis, but it would be redundant, because nobody — and I mean NOBODY — wants to go to Minneapolis.
Have you ever noticed how many ‘RATS and RINOs are pro-criminal and anti-U.S.?
Boycott Minneapolis and San Fransisco all the way to my grave.
Any other @sshole cities or states that are against protecting Americans in Arizona against the damn illegal alien criminals?
Come, come to Arizona and experience home invasion, identity theft and car theft. Enjoy!
I go there once a year for the big gun show at the MPLS Auditorium......
And Phoenix is currently the kidnap capitol of the world....
What a fruit cake...
A gun show? In Minneapolis? Is it held in someone’s one-car garage?
Isn’t it just like Dems? They know thier constituancy is so stupid that they have to be told to be outraged.
Hey, Ryback....thanks for the help...the Arizona law is meant to keep the dregs of society like you OUT!
“”””””A gun show? In Minneapolis? Is it held in someones one-car garage?”””””
It’s at the Minneapolis Convention Center and it is hugh.
They like the money.....
“What a fruit cake...”
The mayor with no first name......
“Its at the Minneapolis Convention Center and it is hugh.”
Just cancel any travel to Mpls. or St. Paul
Got married in SanFran 38 years ago this month, before it became a cesspool. Wife wants to visit there to see the city of our nuptials ... I keep putting it off. Would rather remember it in better times. ;-)
Contact TARGET and let them know you will no longer be shopping there unless they slap this mayor down.

I’d sure like to see the expense accounts from these dippy mayors on how much they have spent in Arizona in the last 5 years....bet its zero...just mouthy for their lib voters..
I shop at Target. I don’t buy anything. I just shop....
I love to walk around with the Sig on my hip, while the rent-a-cops stand there with their walkie-talkies....
Oh, go. You might get lucky! Then SF can be the place where you did the dirty deed the first and probably last time.
LOL! At my age, it could be, in fact, the last.
Liberal government workers everywhere should quit their jobs to protest Arizona protecting their international border.
Thanks for the heads up, richard cranium.
I am trying to figure out if I can free travel budget up this year to make a trip to Arizona, as well.
Yes, this is from the mayor of Jihad Central.
I boycott stupidity and this man is “Stuck on Stupid, big time.”
I wish there were a way we could get a huge group to start promoting travel to ARIZONA! I think it would be great to get tea party folks and like minded conservatives to do everything possible to elevate business and trade in Arizona! We could bust these worms who want our laws to continue to be broken!
Canceling Minneapolis travel now...
I just freed up some travel budget to not go to Minneapolis with. I feel rich!
I think I will cancel Minnesota for travel too.
Are these people just plain stupid?
I think we’re going to see a lot of people moving to AZ; in fact, I’m seriously wondering if there isn’t going to be a huge shifting of population among states on political grounds alone. I’ll stay in MA while my parents (in their 80’s) live, but could be talked into seeking political asylum very easily.
I am planning to fly to Arizona this winter ..... and spend lots of money on businesses that do not hire illegals. I will even ask them first.
So, yes, I am joining the “Buy”-cott!
They are beyond stupid, more like morons who
put Al Franken in the Senate.
I guess it’s the ego you get when you’re a city of just over a 3rd of a million of people and the only other major city that’s around you may as well be a part of your city since you’re so close together. The mayor, much like many other Minneapolitain, have this air or unearned arrogance. It’s because Minneapolis has made a living seeming as though it’s more significant than it actually is by stealing Saint Paul’s thunder for ages. The Mayor’s bought into the hype that his city of 380 thousand people actually means something nationally. It doesn’t. It’s a small sized urban outpost located by another small sized urban outpost when put together, make up a medium sized urban outpost of around 600K people and falling. He’s just the mayor of the western half of a remote, Denver sized city. It’s so small that I usually tell people I’m from the state of Minnesota when I go out of town, since few people have heard of Minneapolis.
Oh, and Minneapolis is full of militant vegans.
“Are these people just plain stupid?”
(Chris)Coleman, Rybak, Klobuchar, Franken, Ellison.....
SWA flight in, bus downtown; do a meal, bus back, SWA flight home.
Boycott Minneapolis! (Who goes there anyway?)
I’m do research now on the places I can visit in Arizona. It’s a magnificent state. Like ALL things beautiful, the liberals are determined to destroy it. As has been suggested, I woulddn’t even change a plane in Minnesota or California now. What in the h..l is wrong wtih these idiots?
“(Who goes there anyway?)”
Along with Hispanics, that have taken over East Lake Street.
Head north on 35W and get off on E. Lake. Look for a business that has a sign in English.
Good luck and drive it like you stole it.....
Never been to AZ....but, I’ll be there before I make the 15 minute trip to MPLS.....
What are the comments of people you know, if any, about the recent story in the Pioneer Press of the illegal immigrant who had about 4500 bucks taken from him by an FBI special strike force or some name like that and was awarded seventy thousand dollars!!! by the unit’s insurance group because his “rights” were violated. The story was front page on the Press thursday. The illegal immigrant’s lawyer said his fourth and fourteenth amendment rights were violated. I read the story shaking in anger. He’s an ILLEGAL!!! immigrant. He’s a criminal.
As far as I’m concerned, both the FBI and the illegal were criminals. What in god’s name is the FBI doing seizing people’s money, illegally here or legally here anyway?
