I pass by a street corner in Mesa every day heading to work and; in just the last month or so, the number of day laborers loitering is down an honest 30-50%. Note this is a Hispanic enclave that already has 'lost' about 20-30% if its population starting in 2007 with the passage of Arizona's employer sanctions law. Read that the area is/was loaded with illegal aliens---------Americans of Mexican, etc. lineage have no reason to fear ICE.

"Arizona Moves to Criminalize Undocumented Immigrants"

I'm not exactly surprised that the home of immigrant-hating, power-abusing Sheriff Joe Arpaio wants to break nativist ground as the first state in the country to criminalize undocumented immigrants.

Under legislation currently in the Senate, beautifully titled, "Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhood Act," getting caught in the state without documents would be a misdemeanor the first time, a felony charge the second. Hmm ... I guess by "law enforcement" they mean Arpaio and his cronies. They couldn't mean the law enforcement that supports immigration reform, is concerned with protecting undocumented immigrants, and found that immigrants have lower rates of crime -- making our neighborhoods safer.

The bill would also bar any policies that restrict or exempt law enforcement from implementing state or federal immigration law, known as "sanctuary policies." Instead, it would encourage the waste of money and resources on hunting down resources that Arpaio started, and eventually led to him getting cut off. In 2006, former governor and current Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano vetoed a similar bill as an unfunded mandate. But in this time of recession, apparently Arizona doesn't have anything better to spend its money on.

Drove through the neighborhoods near the above street corner: an honest 25-30% of all apartments are vacant--------which jibes pretty neatly with my original observations.

Finally, Arizona is eventual in getting back to the beauty it is so known for

Several years ago I was in Phoenix and fell in love with the city, the landscape and people. Nice to have eyes on front views, thanks ArizonaBear.
