Skip to comments.Los Angeles County Vote to Boycott Arizona; LAUSD also Denounces SB 1070
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."

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.
73% Mexican with one of the lowest test scores in America.
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.
Tests are RACIST!
According to the Border Patrol the public is being mislead as to WHO is coming into the US from Mexico.
Just pull the lever on the power they source from AZ....
Stupid is really popular with the left.
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 lived there from 1999-2004, it is a serious cesspool.
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.
Nice to know what the future holds. How about we give LA over to the Mexies now?
My guess is they are bound by contract. BUT, when that contract expires, put it to ‘em and pull the plug. sd
