Boycott San Jose!

From a news article that I read today:

"San Jose officials Friday joined those criticizing Arizona's new law that empowers police to detain people suspected of being in the United States illegally.

Critics have assailed the law as a green light for cops to harass Latinos regardless of their citizenship status. Under terms of the Arizona law, even legal immigrants must produce proof of citizenship or legal residence on demand.

San Jose council members Ash Kalra, Madison Nguyen, Sam Liccardo and Rose Herrera jointly called for the city to join in boycotting Arizona by not making official trips to the state or purchasing goods or services from companies based there.

The proposal also calls for San Jose to officially denounce the Arizona law, and it states that the city won't report the immigration status of otherwise law-abiding local residents to federal authorities."

“We cannot pass laws that allow someone to be stopped on the street because of the color of their skin,” said City Councilwoman Rose Herrera."

I say that we BOYCOTT SAN JOSE! Just like other fear mongers they lie. The law does NOT allow anyone to be stopped based on skin color. There is NO RATIONAL REASON to fight this law. When any citizen is stopped for a violation, they are required to provide their proof of citizenship...their driver's license. So stop pretending that this is about anything accept harboring illigal aliens for whatever reason you may have!
