According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Arizona residents are giving the city of San Diego a taste of its own medicine for its city council's decision to boycott Arizona over its illegal immigration law.
Many Arizona residents who were planning to vacation in San Diego have notified the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau and some hotels that they are cancelling their scheduled vacations there. The convention bureau has reportedly received 25 to 30 emails from Arizona residents, with some saying they are cancelling their reservations and taking their money elsewhere.
So now tourism officials appear to be in panic mode, urging Arizonans to consider the resolutions as merely symbolic and local politics at work. The president of the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau, Joe Terzi, is quoted as saying, "This affects all the hardworking men and women who count on tourism for their livelihoods, so we're saying, don't do something that hurts their livelihoods."
Perhaps the city of San Diego should've thought of the hardworking men and women of Arizona and the impact a boycott would have on their livelihoods before deciding to take the action they did.
