After Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) called for a boycott of his own state should the GOP's immigrant crackdown bill become law, an unnamed individual allegedly threatened on Friday to blow up his Tucson office and murder his staff, according to published reports.
In response, Grijalva announced the closure of his offices in Tucson and Yuma later that night. While they are expected to reopen on Monday and the FBI is looking into the alleged threat, to Democrats across Arizona the message is abundantly clear: do not speak out against the state's immigration crackdown, or else.
The congressman had in recent days sparked a political firestorm by calling on businesses and organizations to boycott his state over its recently-passed immigration reforms that, in the name of cracking down on illegal Mexican immigration, empowers authorities to detain and interrogate anyone based solely on the officer's judgement of behavior and appearance.
