Red-faced Boston city councilors who boldly voted to shun the state of Arizona over its new immigration crackdown are now showing signs of boycotter’s regret.
The grandstanding pols kept a low profile when the target of their boycott came to their city on Saturday. Some acknowledged taking a pass on the much-hyped protest of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer for weekend vacations and other engagements - while one councilor even admitted the embargo was ill-conceived.
The non-binding measure, sponsored by Council President Michael Ross and Councilor Felix G. Arroyo, calls on city officials “not to participate in any business activities substantially connected with the State of Arizona and municipalities in Arizona.”
