Professor Reynoso Publishes Op-ed on Arizona Boycott in Bee
Professor Cruz Reynoso published an essay in the Sacramento Bee on the City of Sacramento's proposed boycott of Arizona in the wake of the state's passage of a controversial new immigration law.
Professor Reynoso's essay, "Another View: Arizona boycott is morally right," responds to a May 27 editorial in the Bee that suggested the boycott was "not a wise option" and urged the Sacramento City Council to vote against it.
"When government jails people who are guaranteed basic liberties of travel and speech, moral outrage through public opinion - including economic sanctions against Arizona - is morally imperative," writes Professor Reynoso.
A member of the UC Davis School of Law faculty since 2001, Professor Reynoso is an internationally known civil rights leader, the first Latino to sit on the California Supreme Court, and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. He has been awarded the UC Davis Medal, the university's highest honor, and the Law School has established the Cruz & Jeannene Reynoso Scholarship for Legal Access to help students with financial needs.
