The Associated Press: Immigrant families leave Arizona and tough new law

I guess they were too chicken to put the word "illegal" in the title.

Of course they were. The AP is very politically-correct and liberal.

From the article:

Ruiz, 38, and her husband, who builds furniture, came to the U.S. from Los Mochis in the northwestern Mexican state of Sinaloa about six years ago on tourist visas, which expired long ago. Two of their kids, ages 9 and 13, are here illegally, while their 1-year-old was born here. The family is moving to Clovis, N.M., where they have family. "It's calmer there," Ruiz says.

So now we in New Mexico are going to get stuck with more illegals. But NM does not have the jobs that AZ does, nor TX. We do have a busted state government and a pro-illegal alien governor, and neither of those bodes well for NM.

We've been stuck with them for years in TX.

Too bad all of the states (especially the other border states) don't pass similar legislation to help get rid of illegals. I hope it gets to the point where ALL illegals are running scared, and there is no option for them other than to go home.

yup, I doubt too many LEGAL immigrant families (if any) are fleeing Az.

From the article
Quote:
Back at the garage sale, the three friends have a row of tables strewn with Barbie dolls, bicycle helmets, old movies and a Jane Fonda workout video. A laundry basket is overflowing with children's toys, and a shopping cart is filled with clothes.
They are selling off pieces of their lives.
BOOFnHoo - welcome to the world of the LEGAL American unemployed, who maybe when these people leave can once again have JOBS.

From the article: "Ruiz, Suriano and Arias are representative of many families facing what they consider a cruel dilemma. To leave, they must pull their children from school, uproot their lives and look for new jobs and homes elsewhere."

This is what they did when they left their home country, so how is this different now?

Not a cruel enough dilemna apparently to make the decision to go BACK where they came from and can BE legally.
