When the sanctimonious liberal twits running San Diego joined San Franfreakshow, La-La Land, etc. in denouncing Arizona for taking a tentative step toward enforcing immigration law, they forgot that San Diego needs Arizona much more than vice versa.
San Diego tourism leaders and hoteliers fear they could lose a sizable chunk of business this summer from valued “Zonies” who are so angered by elected leaders’ recent censure of Arizona for its illegal-immigration law that they’re mounting an informal boycott of their own.
The San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau and several hotels report receiving e-mails and letters from Arizona visitors saying they intend to change their plans to travel here in light of local outcry over their home state’s anti-illegal-immigration stance.
Traditionally, the brutal summer heat in southern Arizona sends a stampede of tourists to San Diego every year.
Still struggling from the prolonged economic downturn, San Diego’s visitor industry can ill afford to lose any of the 2 million Arizonans it counts on annually, said ConVis President Joe Terzi. … Charles Holladay, manager of the Ramada Plaza in Mission Valley, noted that as much as 50 percent of his summer business originates in Arizona, and he already has received a cancellation from a regular customer.
Arizonans will be reminded that it’s nice and cool in the northern part of the state, and there’s plenty to see up there. Who wouldn’t trade a crowded beach for the Grand Canyon? Thanks, San Diego libs, for helping to stimulate the local tourism industry.
