How dare California boycott Arizona

I just wanted to give my opinion on the Arizona boycott.

I am disappointed with our unpatriotic gesture at suggesting we boycott Arizona. It is exercising its right in asking anyone who commits a crime to prove his or her right to be in our country. You don't think Mexico would check our "papers" - our right to be in their country, if we committed a crime?

Even Mexico's president told a reporter that they'd check our papers and send us back if we had a criminal background or if we were illegally there trying to get a job. What a hypocrite.

I am so very tired of hearing the race card played here. It has nothing to do with race. It's about stopping crime from illegal immigrants, no matter what country they are from.

Arizona has to do something to stop all the crime that's devastating it. People are getting robbed and murdered, for heaven's sake. I bet if one of those politicians who oppose it had a relative killed by an illegal immigrant, then they would change their tune real quick.

And for the record, I don't know where they are getting their percentages when they talk about all the people who don't like the law. Almost 100 percent of the people I know support it, and we wish we had it in California.

So not only does Arizona have the right to enforce the "already existing" federal law, but it has the obligation to protect its people from harm.

How dare California boycott Arizona. We have no justifiable right to do that. We, as a country, should stick together.

So I totally support Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich when he says the boycott's stupid. I personally will take every opportunity to buy anything I can from Arizona to support it and its wise decision, and so will many, many of my friends.

Shame on California. Shame on any American who doesn't stand up for fellow Americans who need support when another country is harming them.

And us Californians should be doing this next and real soon.
