Arizona tourists are biting back against San Diego for its city council's decision to boycott the Grand Canyon State over its immigration law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer last month. Would-be tourists have notified the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau and some hotels that they are canceling their scheduled travel to the coastal vacation destination, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. According to the newspaper, the convention bureau has received about 25-30 emails from Arizona residents, with some saying they are canceling their reservations and taking their money elsewhere.
This is an interesting twist. The boycot seems to be backfiring on them. With an already shaky economic base, the tourism industry is going to take the fall on this one.
“It’s sad that people would cancel their plans to come here in reaction to that, but I still think we did the right thing,” Jackson told the Union-Tribune. “Certainly, we know how important tourism is to San Diego, and it wasn’t my intent to impact the tourism trade.”
"oops. My bad" doesn't seem like it will cover this.

Governor Brewer is starting to act like palin, oops too late she is already friends with palin, associating with palin bad move politicially. Only serves to make brewer into another palin, and you all saw how fast palin and mccain lost the presidency.
Brewer will be just a memory of the past soon, I'm sure she'll be removed from office replaced by someone with a better mind, and not so crazy. Brewer is making enemies, look at the suns, they don't like her or her politics.
Arizona citizens should vote her out of office or look to impeach her.
Brewer is going to cost the state possibly millions in revenue, time for a change of governor I think.
Look around people you really want more crazy laws passed by a buddy of palin's. Having Palin back brewer doesn't show her to be very smart. I wonder how long it will be before brewer has things written on her hands.
Well since you're comparing Arizona's immigration law to the nazis, how about I compare your debate tactics to that of Glenn Becks? Glenn Beck compares a lot of things to Nazis too. If this is the opposition's best argument against Arizona's Law, then I say Arizona wins by default.

I kind've assumed that he was serious. After all, there are some people who think like that, so I figured maybe this guy is for real. Why isn't he/she banned yet? Isn't trolling against the T&C or whatever?

Seriously, this guy is a troll... he shows up a couple of times per immigration thread, doesn't read anything past the headline, leaves two or three paragraphs decrying human rights violations, facism and calling those who want stricter border control nazis and then leaves... waste of carpal tunnel to respond IMO.
Don't feed the trolls...
