We're people. What can we do?
Attorney Michael Yaki, writing at SFGate, has some thoughts:
Illegal immigration is a problem. Perhaps this law galvanizes a reluctant Congress and Administration to tackle it. But mere displeasure, even outrage, at federal inaction is no excuse to enact a law that has its antecedents in a dictatorship, not a democracy, and certainly not American democracy.
There is one way to express displeasure and opposition to the outrageous action of the Arizona legislature. Boycott the state. Cancel conventions. Shift golf vacations to Oregon, New Mexico, Florida, the Carolinas. And as painful as it may seem, if the state of affairs continues next year, it may be time to think the unthinkable -- missing the annual fan and beerfest known as spring training.
That's change we can believe in. Don't drop any coins to support Arizona.
