Calif. Resolution Urges Arizona Economic Boycott

Wednesday, 23 Jun 2010 07:00 PM


A group of California lawmakers is urging the state to boycott Arizona over its controversial immigration law.

Cities around the country have approved boycotts, but California could be the first state to do so if it adopts a resolution introduced Wednesday.

Sen. Gil Cedillo's resolution calls on the state to issue a travel advisory, cease state investments in Arizona and urge Major League Baseball to reconsider letting Arizona host the 2011 All-Star Game.

More than 40 lawmakers, all Democrats, have signed the Los Angeles Democrat's resolution as co-authors. It now goes to a legislative committee for approval.

Arizona's law requires law enforcement officers to check the citizenship of anyone they believe might be in the country illegally.
