Los Angeles to boycott Arizona

It may be largely symbolic, but Los Angeles has become the biggest US
city to boycott Arizona. City Councillors voted to stop doing business
with companies in the neighbouring state - in protest at Arizona's
controversial new immigration law. In reality many contracts between
the two states will stay in place - it would be impractical to change
them. But the message from LA is loud and clear: Arizona's new law
"encourages racial profiling and is unconstitutional."
