Los Angeles County Vote to Boycott Arizona; LAUSD also Denounces SB 1070
San Fernando Sun ^ | June 2, 2010 | Alex Garcia

Posted on 06/03/2010 12:47:43 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Los Angeles Unified School District [LAUSD] joined the city of San Francisco and West Hollywood and signed on to denounce SB 1070, the Arizona law that criminalizes undocumented immigrants.

...The boycott calls for a stop of any official county travel to Arizona, as well as a revision and end to any contract with that state.

...Meanwhile, Supervisor Mike Antonovich, who last week had come out against the proposal, calling it "stupid," ratified his position this week, adding that as elected officials they must uphold the law.

"We need solutions, not boycotts. Solutions, not more lawsuits," he said. "Legal immigration is the lifeblood of our country, but illegal immigration is illegal across the world."

He added Arizona should be commended for passing SB 1070 and for showing the need for immigration reform.

...Also against the boycott was Errol Valladares, member of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly.

"This boycott is going to hurt the very Latino people it alleges to help," said Valladares, who is of Guatemalan descent. "Los Angeles County shouldn't meddle in or interpret Arizona law. This boycott is not going to changeArizona law."

Meanwhile, LAUSD also insisted on making fools of themselves. Does any sane patriotic person still have their kids enrolled in L.A. City "schools?"

Re LAUSD:

The Board also requested that Superintendent Cortines ensure that civics and history classes discuss the recent laws with students in the context of the values of unity, diversity and equal protection for all people.

"Discuss"=code for brainwash, lie, etc.

You’d never know these bozos are on the verge of bankruptcy. Old commie trick. When your up to your ass in gators, try to focus their attention somewhere else.

Hey, LA residents...I heard sticking a pebble under your tongue helps out with being thirsty. Don’t what to tell you about not having electricity. Just gotta figure that one out for yourselves.

AZ should immediately call them on that and end the electricity supply contract. Tell them that if they want electricity, they can negotiate for a new contract, starting at triple the current rate. I'm sure AZ could sell the electricity to other states.

According to the Border Patrol the public is being mislead as to WHO is coming into the US from Mexico.

Proof positive these liberal idiots (sorry for the redundancy) don’t care about their constituencies. Their county/city/ISD is going to hell and they worry about ARIZONA?

Less than 35% are capable of graduating from High School. That should tell you something.

Arizona should cancel all trips to LA and other cities that boycott them.

I was raised there in the 40’s. One of the best cities in the country at the time. But I agree, it’s a “cesspool” today.

My guess is they are bound by contract. BUT, when that contract expires, put it to ‘em and pull the plug. sd

I’ll suggest it again. Shut the transmission lines down for a few days of “routine maintenance.”

As far as I know, electrical power is under the jurisdiction of L.A. City government, not the County. L.A. City derives 25% of its power from Arizona, but as already discussed AZ could not be authorized to cut it off.

Now how to fight this current garbage !!! Maybe move?

I have a feeling the citizens of AZ are going to be taking fewer trips to California this summer and instead will be seeing the sights in their own state, such as the Grand Canyon. In the long run, this immigration law could even give an economic boost to AZ as conservative citizens from throughout the US specifically choose AZ as a travel destination, to offset the impact of left-wing boycotts.

I bought a 3 year old Airstream trailer in April of this year. I have been updating it and looking to freshen her up.

I called the parts department of an Airstream dealer in California. I had them give me their prices for a large list of items.

When the gal was ready to take my order, I told her thanks for the time, but that I was going to order my parts from a dealer in Arizona because of their dumba$$ boycott.

I asked her to be sure to tell her boss that this was the reason they missed out on a $3,000 order. I told her that I was going to get as many people as I can to do the same thing....

Do it... it’s fun.

This does raise the question of why they were spending so much money in AZ in the first place. Shouldn’t L.A. County be supporting our own state’s economy?

Maybe move up to the Thousand Oaks area or Ventura county. You can still get into downtown LA fairly quickly from there and you wouldn’t have to put up with the awful LA schools.

We are trying hard to look at private schools for next year. However we are on a fixed income and in our 70’s and raising a 11 year old grandson. Not easy.

We Arizonans could really make it rough on the fruits and nuts out there in LaLa Land if we wanted to. Not only can we cut their electricity off, but we could also cut about 60% of their drinking water off by shutting down the Lake Havasu aqueduct.

"Shouldn’t L.A. County be supporting our own state’s economy?"

That was the first thing that came to my mind when this boycott BS started. They're BROKE!!

And I loved Brewer pointing out the boycotts would be chump change compared to the money they'll save by removing Illegals from the social service rolls.
