    These guys are so ignorant!!! They should get a clue, read the law and then make an educated decision. I hate when musicians & Hollywood personalities use their celebrity status and jump on the “Bandwagon” without researching the issues for themselves. There is a significant difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration and Arizona is not fighting against immigration all together, just ILLEGAL. Why should Arizona be punished & boycott for being the only state to actually enforce the Federal Immigration Laws?

    Wake up & educate yourselves before you start boycotting. I use to be a fan of Maroon 5, …I guess I’ll be chucking that CD right over the border fence!!

    That’s right Volleyball Girl . . . and if we were to turn that same flawed logic on them, we would assume they are racist for having an all white band!
