More and more States are passing laws against Illegal Immigration but I suspect these are feel good laws to make the public feel that something is being done. In the final analysis the laws will not be enforced much at all. I understand that there has been no one arrested or charged in Oklahoma since the new Anti Illegal Immigration Law was passed a few months ago. Georgia has a new tough anti illegal immigration law but it is not being enforced and more and more illegal immigrants are moving in every day.

I suspect the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will stop the Arizona Law but in the mean time it will also be quietly ignored.

It is a wink and a nod thing. Big business works closely with the State and Local Officals to see that nothing is really done but every once in a while people will talk about illegal immigration to get re elected.

In one word: yes.

The 9th has made a ruling already.

The Employer Sanctions law goes into effect on Jan 1.

And, I can give you a guarantee that AZ will be enforcing the new law against EMPLOYERS - not, illegal immigrants

Considering the law was voted in by such a hefty margin here in Arizona . . . I have a feeling the elected officials will pay attention.

and I know of two landlords who have evicted their tenants who could not prove their legality.
Also, more than one employer has replaced their wait staff with new faces who speak our lingo....
I think it is working

I believe so. With the national debt over $9 trillion and rising and the housing bubble bursting, there are big economic problems on the horizon.

It's becoming clear that very much greed and fraud was involved in the big housing "boom" and many houses are being foreclosed and many new houses sit empty. That will mean rampant construction of new homes is going to come to a halt. As we all know most illegals are not here picking lettuce -- a great number of them were the low-wage workers for housing construction.

Without jobs -- there's only two things that can be done -- the state figures out what to do with hundreds of thousands of unemployed drywall hangers and painters which means providing them some kind of unemployment handouts or they must leave the state. I don't think Americans are up to any new big tax to provide illegals unemployment handouts.

Also look at the example of one famous deportee -- Elvira Arellano. No one is suffering by her being back in her own country. Even her own son is adjusting well to being in Mexico.

It's not as though there won't be many happy endings with this. Many Mexicans upon being deported, simply return home to their families and friends, find some work to do and go on with life. Many have children who are thrilled to have parents back home again.
