AZ Governor Dismisses Threat of Economic Boycott

Tuesday, 27 Apr 2010 07:34 AM

Gov. Jan Brewer is dismissing the threat of an economic boycott over the new state immigration law she signed last week.

Appearing Monday at an Arizona Town Hall in Tucson, Brewer said she doesn't believe the law is "going to have the kind of economic impact that some people think it might."

U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva, a Tucson Democrat, has called for a boycott of convention business for the state and other calls have come for a boycott of Arizona goods, services and tourism because of the nationally controversial immigration law.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Brewer says outrage over the ability of police to ask people for citizenship documentation will fade. She recalled how another uproar faded when she was secretary of state and rode herd over a requirement that voters show ID at the polls.
