    They may call themselves "sanctuary cities," but very few of them are offering sanctuary to the illegal immigrants in Arizona who now face possible arrest and deportation.

    As San Francisco and other "sanctuary cities" declare war on Arizona over its new law cracking down on illegal immigrants, most state and local governments that provide a safe haven to undocumented workers refused to publicly roll out a welcome mat for the estimated 440,000 illegals in the Grand Canyon state.

    Several mid-size cities and states with policies that seek to protect undocumented workers either declined to comment to FoxNews.com on whether it would accept Arizona's illegal immigrants or said the possibility had not been considered.

    "We don't have any actions planned," said Jillian Schoene, a spokeswoman for Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski. "If I have a chance to take this up with the governor, I'll call you back."

    Schoene didn't call FoxNews.com back.

    Bill Begley, a spokesman for Mayor Mike Moncrief of Fort Worth, Texas, told FoxNews.com that he couldn't comment on whether the city, with its population of more than 700,000, would take in any of Arizona's illegal immigrants.

    "We'd have to sit down about any overt offer that would address that issue," he said. "That's not something I can talk about off the top of my head."

    Denver Public School employees travel alot to Arizona for work related business do they?

    The Arizona economy is really going to take a hit on that one. :rolleyes:

    Typical liberal symbolism over substance.

    DPS is just one example. Arizona is chasing away business that may end up in Colorado. I am sure the Centennial State won't mind the revenue their neighbor is alienating.

    The flip side is that some people may support Arizona enough to decide to travel there for vacations etc. for the purpose of off-setting any such boycotts.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Grand Canyon again.

    Have you heard about the calls to boycott of Arizona Ice Tea ? :laugh:

    Online, misguided tea fans vowed to switch to Lipton or Snapple, said the report.

    "Dear Arizona: If you don't change your immigration policy, I will have to stop drinking your enjoyable brand of iced tea," read one Twitter post cited by the newspaper."
