Yesterday evening at the unveiling of Senate Democrats proposal for immigration reform, I asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, if she supported a resolution in the city of San Francisco to boycott any company doing business in Arizona. Here is her full response (Click on image below for VIDEO- partial transcript below):
“San Francisco is an island unto itself. Apparently, before the board of supervisors there is a resolution for the city to boycott any business with which the city carries out with any firm in Arizona. I do not think that is a smart thing to do. I think the way we handle this is the way it has to be handled, which is a comprehensive bill passed by the federal government, and I don’t think that boycotts or things of that nature really help. They just polarize people.”
Ms. Feinstein is also the former mayor of San Francisco.
