Salt Lake City won’t join boy­cott of Ari­zona

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

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.
