On May 17, a male caller to Chip Franklin’s morning show on AM 600 claimed that the Hotel del Coronado was losing reservations from Arizona residents unhappy with the City of San Diego and the San Diego Unified School District’s boycott of Arizona due to their new immigration law.

I spoke with a Hotel Del reservation agent named Jessica, and she confirmed that they have had some cancellations from Arizona because of the boycott, but agents point out that the hotel is in the City of Coronado, not San Diego. She said reservations agents at the Del were surprised at San Diego mayor Jerry Sanders’s pronouncement against Arizona.

“We all against the boycott,” said Jessica. “And we still have a lot of guests from Arizona. They love us. It hasn’t really hurt us at all.”

I'm still waiting for Los Angeles to follow through on their boycott and stop buying 25% of their power from Arizona.

These "boycotts" couldn't possibly be nothing but grandstanding, could they? Surely, our elected leaders are people of principle who know that the electorate will cheerfully follow them off of a cliff for principle, right? And the fact that 60-70% of us disagree with their pro-illegal-alien position... bah, just background noise!

Immigration is a very complex and divisive issue-I stay away from it in public........it is like abortion, no one of going to change your view, no matter what that view is.
