Stirring the Melting Pot

Stirring the melting pot:

“Now to the growing national backlash against the state of Arizona over its tough new immigration law that says police can stop people just on the suspicion they might be there illegally.”

NBC’s Brian Williams

“It’s now gone beyond protest to threats of a boycott, as Arizona becomes a laughing stock to some.”

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

“Critics are having a field day with this, Sheriff Arpaio, as you know. Some are calling for a business boycott of the state of Arizona. The Homeland Security Secretary, used to be the governor of Arizona, says she doesn’t like this, this bill. Editorial cartoons are making fun of it. Here’s one where a guy goes up to a fast food counter and orders nachos and is immediately surrounded by police for probable cause. Are you worried that it affects the image of your state?”

NBC’s Matt Lauer to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
