Grijalva: Boycott Still On!

United States Representative Raul Grijalva says his call for a limited boycott to pressure the state to reconsider SB 1070 is still on.

Congressman Raul Grijalva of Arizona's 7th District tells the Friday Roundtable on KUAT-TV has unveiled a new coalition to fight Arizona's new immigration law offering an alternative for artists that might otherwise cancel performances in protest. Groups that are going ahead with scheduled performances are being asked, at a minimum to allow voter registration tables to be set up.

Meanwhile, the congressman responded to Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard's request that Grijalva drop the boycott. Grijalva says it is unfair for Goddard to single him out as the reason organizations have opted out of Arizona.
