City workers banned from official travel to Arizona

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom announced today a moratorium on official city travel to Arizona after the state enacted a controversial new immigration law that directs local police to arrest those suspected of being in the country illegally.

The ban on city employee travel to Arizona takes effect immediately, although there are some exceptions, including for law enforcement officials investigating a crime, officials said. It's unclear how many planned trips by city workers will be curtailed.
(Probably zero...)

The move comes amid a cascade of criticism of Arizona's law, which has been denounced by civil rights groups, some police officials and President Obama, who said it threatens to "undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans." Legal challenges are being weighed to overturn it.

San Francisco's move comes as the Board of Supervisors introduced non-binding resolutions calling for comprehensive immigration reform and a boycott of Arizona because of the new law, which requires police to try to determine the immigration status of anyone they reasonably suspect of being in the country illegally. There are also online boycott campaigns calling for everything from a boycott of the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team to the Grand Canyon.

Oh no, Gavin's homo, lesbo, transgender and other freaks from San Fran will be banned from travel to AZ. What a loss.:rolleyes:

Maybe the AZ Gov. could send a letter to homo Gavin that state employees will be banned from that shithole by the Bay.

Arizona should take all illegals rounded up, put them on buses, and deliver them to the sanctuary city of San Francisco where they will be greeted with open arms. What a wonderful media moment that will be.

Arizona is threatening to send back to California a bunch of inmates being housed there and Arnold is now shying away from the whole boycot thing. If I was the governor of Arizona I would drive the inmates to the border, take off their handcuffs and shackles and then shoo them across the state line by shooting at their feet.

Kalifornia is broke and Newsome wants to further cut revenue? Sounds like a libertard. AZ will just return the favor. Other states will likely be disgusted with Newsomes idiocy. The population of Gavin's little city compared to the entire SW isn't a contest.
