Thousands marched to Arizona's state Capitol to protest the tough new immigration law on Saturday, March 29, 2010.
The City Council on Tuesday voted 9-2 to denounce the immigration law, prohibit city employees from traveling to the state on official business and support legal challenges filed by other groups. But council members said they didn't think a boycott was appropriate, given the city's financial troubles.
San Jose has contracts with Arizona companies for garbage collection and stun guns that are worth millions of dollars.
Arizona's new law allows police enforcing other laws to question people about their immigration status.
