A word on California’s supposed boycott of Arizona.
I’m not going to comment much on the Arizona illegal immigration bill because capable thinkers have already made comments on it. Me personally, I’m ambivalent on the bill. I don’t think it will address the problem of illegal immigration, but it is a bill that is desperately asking the Feds to do their jobs and enforce immigration law. What I find funny is that many cities in California and possibly the state itself will be boycotting Arizona because of the law. I think that would actually help out California: the budget hole that that state is in is so deep that banning its own government employees from spending money in the state will actually help it shore up its finances. Maybe what California should do is extend its boycott to the rest of the country; it’ll find itself out of budget deficit in record time if it did this.
