On Countdown with Keith Oberman last night the top issue was the Arizona’s new law. Here is what their new law is costing them so far:
San Francisco debates canceling all contracts with Arizona.
Mexico has issued a travel alert warning that it might be unsafe for its tourists to travel in the United States of America, specifically in the state of Arizona. Mexico is Arizona’s top source of tourism.
The Mexican state of Sonora pulled out of its annual meetings with Arizona.
Mexican legislators are pondering a trade boycott with Arizona which sends nearly a third of its exports to Mexico.
L.A.‘s city council today introduced a boycott resolution there.
D.C.‘s city council is expected to consider one as well.
At least six conventions have canceled plans to conduct their business in Arizona.
“Governor Brewer signed that law, she dragged the state of Arizona into a bigger dark hole economically than any one convention or San Francisco not doing business with Arizona—billions of dollars of trade, billions of dollars of retail sales, visitation, tourism—all from Latin America.” ~ REP. RAUL GRIJALVA (D), ARIZONA
