San Francisco’s push to boycott Arizona because of its new stringent immigration law could be headed for the state level.
Arizona’s controversial new law, which goes into effect this summer, makes it a crime under state law for anyone to be in the U.S illegally.
San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera on Monday called for the City to discontinue business with Arizona in protest over what he calls a “Draconian law.”
Now, California Senate President Darrell Steinberg is joining the call for the state to take a stand and sent a letter to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger saying the law amounts to racial profiling and urged the governor to cancel the state’s contracts with Arizona.
