Grijalva closing Tucson, Yuma offices after death threats

U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva is closing his Tucson and Yuma offices at noon Friday because of multiple death threats. 

Police are currently stationed outside his Tucson office, according to an email sent out by Grijalva spokesman Adam Sarvana. 

On Tuesday, Grijalva, a Democrat, said the rest of the country should boycott his home state of Arizona if a tough immigration law is signed by Gov. Jan Brewer. Reports say Brewer will sign the bill into law Friday.

Grijalva was responding to SB 1070 that requires police to check the IDs and arrest anyone who they have "reasonable suspicion" might be in the country illegally.

"It's a horrible, horrible precedent for the nation, and we can't allow it to continue," the Southern Arizona congressman told Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's "Countdown" on Tuesday.

What is going on down there? I am glad that the Congressman is standing up for PEOPLE! How do these geniuses plan on paying for the enforcement, transportation,incarceration and/or deportation of undocumented people that are detained? How are they planning to pay for the lawsuits brought by the documented workers and legal citizens that they are going to violate the Constitutional rights of? I thought that Arizona is broke?

Sorry, we missed your input...
