I swear that ever since the Employer Sanctions Act was signed into law; the one that is supposed to take effect early 2008, Latino immigrants seem to be getting thinner on the ground.

I live in the edge of a Latino immigrant enclave here in Scottsdale and it seems to me that more and apartments are emptying out.

Part of it is due to 'urban renewal' admittedly; as apartment leases run out, the affected units are being boarded up.

Stiil; the area is definitely showing signs of people clearing out.

NOTE: the adults have that 'look' of having lived harder lives than people born/raised here in the USA hence probably being illegal immigrants from SOB and possibly points further south.

Maybe I ought to consider moving to Scottsdale after all. SoCal is just ridiculous packed with illegals these days and the CA government loves it. Too packed to go back.

They are just shifting around in the US, they need to be deported and not let back in.

And more and more Americans of generic 'Mestizo/Hispanic' are applauding as well------they are uber pissed at being associated with illegals.
