L. A. Has $56 Million in Arizona-Related Investments

Los Angeles Times: Responding to calls for an economic boycott of Arizona, the top policy analyst for Los Angeles on Tuesday identified a total of $56 million in Arizona-related investments and recommended that the City Council suspend travel to the state, refrain from entering new contracts and review current ones for possible termination. L.A. officials joined with other cities across the country in calling for an economic boycott of Arizona after that state's lawmakers recently passed a tough immigration law that critics say will lead to racial profiling. The law, which will take effect July 23, makes it a state crime for unauthorized migrants to be in Arizona and requires police to check the immigration papers of those they suspect lack legal status.
