SB1070 Cost Arizona $141 Million

From New America Media 

WASHINGTON —The state of Arizona has lost $141 million due to the cancelation of conferences and conventions, part of a national boycott that was launched against the state following its passage of the immigration law SB 1070 three months ago. A new report released Thursday by the Center for American Progress found that some  2,761 jobs were lost in the convention industry. Hotels an conference venues lost $45 million, according to CAP.

Gov. Jan Brewer signed SB 1070 into law in April, requiring law enforcement officials to inquire about the immigration status of anyone they suspect to be undocumented while police are enforcing state and local law. 

CAP, a liberal think tank in Washington, D.C., reports that the news should serve as a warning to states attempting to pass similar laws.
