Boycott Arizona? That's 'stupid' Says LA Co. Supervisor Antonovich
Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich has offered his two cents on the movement in California and within his own board to engage in a financial boycott of Arizona, and he thinks the idea is "stupid," according to a press release issued today.Antonovich says that it's not a prudent use of local officials' energy to cut financial ties to Arizona as a result of their passage of the SB 1070 state immigration law. He calls the movement a "knee jerk reaction to support law breakers at the expense of law-abiding legal immigrants and other residents," and hails the effort as "irresponsible."
But it's not just foolish, according to Antonovich, it's also kind of phony.
