llegal immigration dominated Arizona's political debate during the 2004 and 2006 election cycles, as voters passed half a dozen ballot measures aimed at toughening immigration enforcement and denying state benefits to illegal immigrants.
But this year, with conservative border activists unable to garner enough signatures to make use of the ballot and as economic concerns dominate the agenda, immigration appears to have fallen by the wayside.
There's only one immigration-related measure on the ballot this year, and it does the opposite of those previous ones it actually weakens provisions of the state's employer-sanctions act.
Good read.

Maybe because they already passed all those measures before?

Too at least here in Arizona, the illegals are fleeing in terror.

G/F and I went a Wal-Mart yesterday that is normally infested with with illegals (Spanish speaking Mestizos/Indians) and I swear........there were about 50% less of them compared to even 6 months ago

A significant percentage of the Indians there were our local Apache, etc.---------the Salt River Rez is about 3 miles away.

I dare say, it would be on the "back burner" of the entire country if we were to suddenly have a 50% reduction in illegal immigration. Thanks for the revelation.
