Exactly. It seems the exact opposite to me. Snowbirds come here to mooch, while illegals come here to work.

I'll take the snowbirds and their seasonal boost to our local economy any day over illegal immigrants and their drain on our tax dollars.

I think the government is suing sheriff Joe now, but if they come and arrest him, and put him in prison for catching too many illegal aliens,I think we could loose a lot of the snowbirds, and that would not help our economy.
But hopefully it would not make too much difference, but maybe it could.

Since they obviously live here year round, they take pride in the area. They love paying their taxes and contributing to the community. They would never just come here for a few months, drive on our streets, enjoy all of our public services...and not pay AZ tax. No, they would never do that.

Default A change of mind

Was thinking of coming to AZ for a little respite from our weather here in Canada, but, after reading some of these posts I think we might reconsider. Brave the winter and then spend all our money here in Canada, next summer. Take a longer summer holiday. There are lots of great places to kick back and enjoy. We don't mind seeing the Americans up here during the summer or any other time of the year either, helps our economy.

I agree. But who would not want to live here in Arizona?
In my opinion, half of Canada would want to live here, and half of New York State, half of Florida, California, Alaska, Russia etc.
