Boston Vote to Boycott Arizona

BOSTON - The Boston City Council is scheduled to vote on a resolution calling for the city to pull investments from Arizona in protest over the state's recently passed immigration law.
The vote is slated for Wednesday afternoon.

City Council President Michael Ross and fellow Councilor Felix G. Arroyo said their resolution would ask city officials to end city contracts and purchasing agreements with Arizona and Arizona-based companies. The resolution also would ask city employees not to travel to Arizona for city business.

Councilors have reported a slew of angry calls over the resolution after area conservative talk radio shows urged listners to call councilors.

Immigrant advocates also have phoned councilors urging them to support it.
Washington, D.C., New York and Los Angeles are considering similar measures.
