Grothman demands that MATC board rescind Arizona boycott

    State Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) today called on the Milwaukee Area Technical College board (MATC) to rescind its 6-1 decision to boycott Arizona-based companies and conferences held in Arizona because of that state’s actions to curb its problem with illegal immigration.
    “The MATC board apparently views their new mission as punishing municipalities who do not hold their political views,” Grothman said. “I believe their action would be unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  If every political subdivision were like the MATC Board, we would be back to the days of the Articles of Confederation in which states fought amongst each other.  It is particularly embarrassing that an educational institution would take the lead in dividing our country based on political belief.”
    Grothman called for the Milwaukee area school board presidents who appointed the “six radicals” to the MATC board to pass their own resolution condemning the board and see if they can remove them from the board.
