Arizona tourism and business boycott

To protest Arizona’s recently passed immigration law, several U.S. cities no longer allow their public employees to patronize Arizona on business:

“Arizona’s tough new immigration law has led more than a dozen U.S. cities, organizations and foreign governments to warn against traveling there. Many hotels say guests have canceled reservations. In a state that depends on tourism and conventions, business owners who had been looking for signs of an economic thaw are concerned.”   Click here for the full text-based NPR report.  Click here for the audio NPR report.

At least one company wants to distance its brand from Arizona – the owner of AriZona Beverages stresses that his products are sold and distributed from Long Island, NY.
