Boulder mulls response to Arizona immigration law

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – A commission that advises the Boulder City Council plans to discuss whether the city should boycott Arizona in response to the state’s newly approved immigration law.

City Manager Jane Brautigam already has ordered a halt of city travel to Arizona.

The four-member Human Relations Commission plans to discuss on Monday other possible responses, such as cutting ties with Colorado businesses with offices in Arizona or passing a resolution opposing the law.

The Arizona law gives police broad powers to check the paperwork of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. Critics say it will lead to racial profiling, while advocates say it’s necessary because the federal government has failed to stop illegal immigration.
