Los Angeles City Council Bans official travel and future dealings with Arizona

Another action today that took place around the Arizona immigration law was Los Angeles City Council's 13:1 vote to boycott Arizona, encouraging city heads to avoid future business with Arizona, ban official travel to the state, and investigate whether it can legally cancel any of about $8 million worth of contracts.  I imagine the legal issue is the constitutionality of such a ban and its impact on interstate commerce.

This response by Los Angeles City could spark serious reconsideration of the Arizona law and the Federal Law it is supposedly based upon, and conversation has already begun amongst Senators to overhaul the immigration system.
