Arizona Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick is calling for an end to the boycotts in Arizona over the state’s new immigration law.
The Democratic congresswoman says the boycotts could stop Arizona’s economic recovery in its tracks and cost Arizonans their jobs.
She says residents and local businesses don’t deserve to be hurt over the debate the immigration law has sparked.
Critics of the law that makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally have called for boycotts of Arizona.
Kirkpatrick urged critics to drop the effort and help push Congress to secure the border and fix what she says is a broken immigration system.
