2 Calif. City Councils Vote to Oppose Ariz. Law

Two municipal bodies in California have taken action against Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigration, and a third is expected to.

On Monday, the West Hollywood City Council voted 5-0 to boycott Arizona, while the San Diego City Council voted 7-1 in favor of a resolution urging Arizona lawmakers to repeal the law.

The Carson City Council is scheduled to vote on a boycott of Arizona on Tuesday. The resolution would bar any official city travel to Arizona and prevent the city from conducting business in the state until the law is overturned.

The cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles also have talked of cutting off deals with Arizona and its businesses.

Arizona's law requires local police to question people suspected of being in the country illegally.

The San Diego resolution says the law encourages racial profiling and violates the Constitution.

The San Diego City Council's resolution says the law encourages racial profiling and violates the Constitution. Councilman Carl DeMaio says he voted against the measure because Arizona passed a subsequent bill that specifically prohibits racial profiling.
