— A Nevada group is pressing the cities of Reno and Las Vegas to support a boycott of Arizona over its sweeping new immigration law.

The Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada wants the city councils to reject any new contracts with Arizona-based companies to protest the law.

Reno City Councilman Dave Aiazzi questions whether the request would have any practical effect, saying he's unsure whether his city does any business with Arizona companies.

About 50 people staged a protest over the law Saturday night outside the ballpark of the Reno Aces, the Triple-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Among cities that have passed resolutions or urged boycotts to protest the law are Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle and Austin, Texas.
