Actor: Boycott of Arizona Over Law Not Warranted

Wednesday, 05 May 2010 02:59 PM

Actor and activist Danny Glover says a boycott of Arizona may not be an appropriate response by critics of the state's sweeping law targeting illegal immigration.

The "Lethal Weapon" star said Wednesday the law is misguided, a disservice to the state and a reaction to an extraordinary level of fear.

But he believes Arizonans and their leaders will resolve what he calls a moral crisis.

Critics contend the law will result in racial profiling. Supporters deny that and say the law will pressure illegal immigrants to leave the country and save taxpayers money.

Provisions include a requirement that police question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they're in the country illegally.
