The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,Arizona Lodging and Tourism Association, Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and Greater Phoenix Leadership released the following statement regarding threats of a boycott of Arizona:
“We condemn any discussion of an Arizona boycott. Boycotts only hurt our economy, negatively impact hardworking Arizonans and divide our citizens.
“Arizona is headed in a positive direction, and the governor has helped set an inclusive and welcoming tone, including improved relations with Mexico. The groups behind this threat are doing more to hurt those efforts than to help them.
“Instead of trying to damage our state’s economy and reputation, they should be focused on constructive solutions that bring Arizonans together.”
