AZ boycott not the answer

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

State Assembly Speaker John Pérez thinks the Arizona immigration law is "fundamentally flawed and fundamentally unfair" but he isn't buying into the need - so far - for economic boycotts. "I don't think you need to go boycott until you've exhausted all other kinds of remedies. I think boycotts are effective tools but ought to be used limitedly," he said this morning on MSNBC. Pérez was at the head table during last night's state dinner for Mexican President Felipe Calderon. (from Capitol Alert)
