The Los Angeles City Council [2] passed a resolution Wednesday that calls for cutting some of its business ties to Arizona [3].

The council’s move comes amid controversy over Arizona’s tough immigration law — SB 1070 [4]. Thirteen of the council’s members approved the resolution.

That makes LA the nation’s largest city to boycott Arizona over SB 1070.

“Los Angeles the second-largest city in this country, an immigrant city, an international city. It needs to have its voice heard,” said Councilman Ed Reyes. “As an American, I cannot go to Arizona today without a passport. If I come across an officer who’s having a bad day and feels that the picture on my ID is not me, I can be… deported, no questions asked. That is not American.”
