With the new sanctuary cities law going into effect, 2 US Senators suggested SXSW move out of Austin.
That's way too much to ask and it goes against everything that Austin stands for.
After I read the Statesman article, the idea is ridiculous. Like SXSW started in Austin, hell it is Austin. It contributes massively to the economy and even Mayor, Steve Adler, said he was dumbfounded at the thought.
Mayor Steve Adler, wrote a letter to respond to the suggestion.
