I can say this is a new low in state politics. This is the state that gave us Ev Mecham, John McCain, Kyl, now Brewer and too many more to name. ( On the plus side we've had Mo and Stuart Udall, Raul Castro and Raul Grijalva). The economic repercussions of the immigration law are already being felt. But like any boycott or economic embargo, it's always the little people that will be hurt. It happened in Cuba, Iraq and many other countries. The rich Repubs behind this BS won't be affected. The poorer folks, the construction workers (already suffering), the waitresses, the small businesses. I have seen many posts here on DU calling for the cutting off of federal funds, and much more. The rich will continue to drive their BMWs, the road workers will lose their jobs.
What's the answer? I don't really know, perhaps the legal challenges will put this new law on hold for a while. But the boycotts and embargoes only really hurt the poor.
