SB 1070 Protest: A Day Without A Mexican in Nogales

Posted By on Fri, May 14, 2010 at 10:20 PM

The Nogales International reports on a "Day Without a Mexican" in Nogales protest of Arizona's new immigration law:

“It’s dead,” said one Morley Avenue merchant who asked he not be identified for this story. “We should be closed today, but we don’t want to hurt our employees.

“These people should not be boycotting Nogales; they should be boycotting Phoenix, because that’s where the damn politicians and the people who vote for them are.”

“For 130 years, as long as Nogales has been established—because before it was a community called Isaactown—“we have been dependent on trade with Mexico,” he said. “Without that trade we know what the situation would be.”
