Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar suggests she supports boycotting Georgia after Gov. Brian Kemp's voting law was signed into action, even if the boycotts have impact on working class minorities. Omar was on CNN and said, "boycotts have allowed for justice to be delivered in many spaces; the civil rights movement was rooted in boycotts. We know that, you know, apartheid ended in South Africa because of boycotts."

So far the MLB all-star game is being removed from Atlanta and that could have a big impact on revenue and potential jobs, hurting the city in terms of money and anyone who might have been called for jobs if extra staff might be needed to work at the stadium or businesses nearby. Omar also said, "So our hope is that, you know, this boycott will result in changes in the law because we understand that when you restrict people’s ability to vote, you create a democracy that isn’t fully functioning for all of us, and if we are to continue to be beacon of hope for all democracies around the world, we must stand our ground..."
