What do you suppose the meaning of this ad is?

 

This ad ran in the Arizona Republic. Doesn’t seem too welcoming, does it? 

In the “comments” section there is a 1-800 phone number from someone at the Mexican tourism board.  If you call that number, they will tell you it’s a “mistake”.  Somehow, I just don’t believe that.  I’ll let you be the judge.

    Is Mexico declaring war on Arizona?

  • Barb AZ says:

    They are certainly warning residents of Arizona to stay away! WHY? Aren’t they supposed to draw people from Arizona to travel there? The “Tourism Board?” This LOOKS like a real threat!

    I think the ad is meant to say “we want you in Sonoara, please come” — it tries a bit of humor by poking fun at current events (AZ immigration law). I think it’s a good ad from a nice group of people with a sense of humor.

  • I have heard a lot more folks discussing that the law is Unconstitutional under the Supremacy Clause. The Supremacy Clause forbids state and local laws that contradict federal laws in matters exactly where the federal government has authority to act.
    Once again it only applies in situations exactly where the law contradicts the current law. Arizona’s law requires that State/Local authorities hand over suspect illegals to the proper federal authorities. Maybe you have forgetten (since we haven’t enforced these laws) but it is still a crime to enter our country illegally.
    But as long as we are talking about Constitutionality let’s talk about the Commerce Clause from the Constitution (Article I, Section 8). This clause prohibits states and localities from passing laws that burden interstate or foreign commerce by, among other things, creating “discriminations favorable or adverse to commerce with specific foreign nations.”
    Boycotting Arizona is UNCONSTITUTIONAL so knock it off already. Also to the Arizona government, how about we step up and actually file suit against these cities?
