Senator Johnson: Arizona Iced Tea is Long Island Business; Boycott Misguided

“The proposed boycott of Arizona Iced Tea is a misdirected response to the new law that has been imposed in the state of Arizona. The Arizona Beverage Co. is based in Woodbury, Nassau County, where it employs more than 200 Long Islanders. The company was founded in New York and is a bonafide Empire State success story. I personally believe the Arizona law is wrongheaded, politically motivated and will likely not survive a court challenge. It also does nothing to advance us toward a national solution to the problem of illegal immigration.

Senator Kevin Parker’s latest comments this morning, calling members of the Senate “white supremacists,” are disturbing, disgraceful, disruptive and reprehensible and have no place in this government body or any other.
