Los Angeles County continues to fight Arizona's immigration law

This from the Los Angeles Times:

After heated debate, Los Angeles County supervisors voted, 3-2, today to boycott Arizona in response to the passage of its controversial illegal immigration law.

"This law simply goes too far," said Gloria Molina, the boycott's primary sponsor. "A lot of people have pointed out that I am sworn as an L.A. county supervisor to uphold the Constitution. All I can say is that I believe that Arizona's law is unconstitutional."

Molina's boycott was supported by fellow Supervisors Zev Yaroslavsky and Mark Ridley-Thomas. It was opposed by Supervisors Mike Antonovich and Don Knabe.

"We need solutions, not boycotts," Antonovich said.
