US Gov Engaging in Arizona Boycott - Ignoring Boycott Watch Warnings
Summary: Arizona Deserves Better Treatment Than Cuba
    Earlier this week, Boycott Watch wrote about how President Obama is inherently justifying the Arizona boycott by threatening a lawsuit and why that is dangerous to America. Yesterday on Your World with Neil Cavuto, Stuart Varney reported the U.S. Border Patrol and the U.S. Department of Education have both cancelled events in Arizona. Later in the day, it was learned that the California Legislature wants to adopt an official state boycott of Arizona.

    Although Boycott Watch has correctly predicted the boycott will fail, Boycott Watch continues to warn America of the dangers of the national rift the boycott creates. As stated in our first article about the Arizona boycott, this is the first time states have boycotted other states since Abraham Lincoln was President. Now, the U.S. Government is getting in on the act, compounding the dangers of this boycott: Federal participation is likely to be the single factor which makes the Arizona boycott effective.

    "It is disturbing that U.S. government agencies are participating in the boycott, and for some reason President Obama has remained silent. I hope these event cancellations are isolated incidents, otherwise thus may quickly evolve into America's Second Civil War." said Fred Taub, President of Boycott Watch. "All politics aside, there is no excuse for any President to take sides in dividing people. Since President Obama found the time for his Beer Summit, surely he should make time to end this state-to-state boycott, as well as reject any federal venue changes because of his personal objections to any states laws. I reiterate, therefore, my call for President Obama to make direct statements against boycotting Arizona. Additionally, we remind President Obama that Arizona does not deserve the same treatment as Cuba and that Legal challenges belong in the courtroom, not in the wallets of individuals."
