The City of Austin didn’t like Arizona’s controversial immigration-enforcement law — SB1070 — when it first passed in 2010, and it still doesn’t like the measure today as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments for and against it.

In 2010, the City of Austin quickly passed a resolution that urged city departments to sever ties with businesses in that state.

Council members said then they wanted to send a message that they opposed racial discrimination of any kind, and they didn’t want to risk subjecting city employees to “unfounded detentions while on official city business” in Arizona.

There is a big difference in racial discrimination and NOT ALLOWING ILLEGAL ALIENS TO COME AND TAKE JOBS meant for the citizens.
Here in my subdivision the WCID 17 has been doing a lot of work on the water lines and repaving the streets. NOT ONE CITIZEN IS OUT THERE ALL ILLEGALS WHO SPEAK NOT ONE WORD OF ENGLISH. I guess this is what the city wants illegals employed and legal citizens without employment.
