Salt Lake City won’t join boycott of Arizona
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Council has decided not to boycott Arizona businesses over the state’s tough immigration law. Salt Lake City does about $21 million in business with Arizona firms each year and was urged to join a growing boycott of the state by the Los Angeles City Council. Salt Lake City Council members say they’re worried a boycott could have unintended consequences. Critics say the law encourages racial profiling. Austin is among at least two dozen cities or other government agencies across the nation that have passed resolutions to boycott the state or curtail economic activity with Arizona.
