Good thread benicar.
As many of us have been saying enforcement will force illegals to self deport saving the US tax payer the burden of paying for 12+ million deportations.
If the Fed would only do its job this would relieve the unfair burden placed upon the states.
Most reasonable people can see and understand the fact that every victim of an illegals crime is a victim of a crime that could have and should have been prevented. Secure our borders and enforce our laws.
Every job an illegal has is a job denied to a legal citizen.
10% unemployment this nation can not justify turning a blind eye to the illegals any further.
Some have said this is a republican disaster.
What house speaker said that it is unamerican to enforce our immigration laws?
What state is known for its sanctuary policies?
The past is the past. We need to learn from it and act with extreme vigor.
We owe nothing to illegals except due process for when they caught and then deportation.

We call them Illegal Trespassing Parasites.

Have people left because of SB1070, or the Arizona's bad econony?

Quote:
Although concrete figures are not available, anecdotal evidence suggests Hispanics, both legal residents and illegal immigrants, are starting to flee.


The report suggests that the immigration law is compounding demographic trends that have already significantly curtailed illegal immigration during the past two years. The bad economy has been the primary deterrent to many Hispanic immigrants seeking to enter Arizona, says Jeffrey Passel, a demographer at the Pew Hispanic Center in Washington.

“The economy is always the primary factor in determining migration flows,” says Professor Gutierrez. “It might appear as if these laws are turning back demographic tide in Arizona, but economic forces are a much more important aspect of that development recently.”

Hispanics Abandon Arizona, Fleeing Economy, Immigration Law
Given our current economic crisis, if illegals are leaving Arizona due to the bad economy, why isn’t there a mass exodus from this entire country? Why do illegals continue to enter this country on a daily basis?

"Everyone is selling up the little they have and leaving," said Villasenor, 31, who is headed for Pennsylvania. "We have no alternative. They have us cornered."

"They wanted to drive Hispanics out of Arizona and they have succeeded even before the law even comes into effect," said Aguilar, 28, a mother of three young children who was also offering a few cherished pictures and a stereo at one of five sales on the same block.

"They're just afraid - they can't drive - can't walk out - go grocery shopping not even go to doctor," said church volunteer Michael Fernandez. "They're just fearful they're going to be stopped because of the color of their skin."

Arizona's tough new immigration enforcement law is fueling an exodus of Hispanics from the state seven weeks before it goes into effect, according to officials and residents in the state.

Though no one has precise figures, reports from school officials, businesses and individuals indicate worried Hispanics — both legal and illegal — are leaving the state in anticipation of the law, which will go into effect July 29.

The study also predicts that remittances -- the money sent home by migrants working abroad -- won't recover their peak value of about $26 billion until 2012 or 2013.

At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, – Arizona’s

return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or US money.
Paybacks a M@!*&%#@!.

Was Arizona's economy that much worse than their neighbors?
9.8% unemployment across the country would indicate that the economy is pretty much in the tank nation wide.
What is more likely is that because AZ was the only state at the time attempting to crack down on illegals that the illegals opted to relocate to friendly states.
Note: Not unlike cockroaches when you turn the light on. They flee to places where it is easier to hide.

Every here of this guy named Ronald Reagan? Rumor has it that not only was he a Republican, he passed amnesty during his tenure.
