A move to ban business with Arizona was unanimously approved by the West Hollywood City Council last night. Most public comments were in support of the resolution, including a someone who read a letter from community organizer Dolores Huerta, according to a city hall staffer present at the meeting. Rumors were afloat that around 75 West Valley Tea Party members were going to show, but they never
materialized. The ban was quickly approved under consent.

San Diego approved a resolution calling on Arizona to repeal its tough immigration bill. [For the Record: an earlier version of this post indicated it was a ban, not a statement of opposition].
