Census data released Thursday show Arizona's population rose nearly 25% in the past 10 years to almost 6.4 million, but population in most areas did not measure up to expectations, said Tom Rex of Arizona State University's W. P. Carey School of Business.
Phoenix and Tucson, the two largest cities, each grew by less than 10% during that period.
Rex and other experts said the state's passage of tough immigration laws and increased enforcement against undocumented immigrants probably caused an outflow of Hispanics and may stunt growth in the future.

But 25% is always impressive

Interesting read, Jellal, in spite of the Dennis Wagner's offensive comment . . . "but the recession and an exodus of Hispanic residents appear to have slowed the pace"!

I cannot speak for everyone in Arizona, however, I do not believe the latest Anti-Illegal Laws were intended to encourage or force Hispanics to leave the state, ONLY INDIVIDUALS IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, regardless of their heritage and/or country of origin.

Obviously, Mr Wagner has difficulty comprehending the difference between productive positive growth and the adverse effects related to the safety, both personal and financial, directly attributed to the Illegals.

For sure. If we fall a couple hundred thousand short of projections based on a dearth of illegals, this is good news indeed! I certainly would welcome 200K fewer illegals instead of one more right wing representative in Congress.
