Calls to boycott Arizona over its outrageous new immigration are mounting, the New York Times reports.
Herrera said: “Arizona has charted an ominous legal course that puts extremist politics before public safety, and betrays our most deeply held American values.”
He noted that a similar boycott 20 years ago, which included the National Football League’s decision to move the Super Bowl from the state, led to Arizona finally dropping its refusal to recognise to Martin Luther King Day.
A Democratic congressman from Arizona, Raúl Grijalva, is also calling for an economic boycott against what he described as “unjust and racist” legislation that will damage Arizona’s prestige and credibility. He was forced to close his office at the weekend after receiving two death threats.
