    patronizing AZ by boycotting them without hurting Native American businesses. They're really in a world of hurt as it is.

      to the tribes and to nonprofit organizations that help and support the people who are the victims of this situation in more ways that one.

      There are also thousands of businesses in Arizona that are owned and operated by Hispanics and other minorities and people who are basically caught in the crossfire. I am suggesting that rather than a broad-brush boycott, people could support those who are trying to stay and fight this law until it's repealed or overturned.

      Visit the reservations.  Stay in hotels on the reservations.  Eat in restaurants on the reservations.  Gamble in the casinos.  Have a great time.   Revenue from the reservations doesn't go directly to the state in any way.

      I hope those folks traveling through Arizona will still patronize our businesses but even if it hurts we'll support the boycott. We're brown too and racist police already stop us for DWB but this makes it even worse to be brown in Arizona. Besides we live on both sides of the border so this law will hurt us in both ways.
