Default Will Arizona's Law 1070 have a Domino effect?

I am really hopeful that this Law goes through and that taxpayers will see dramatic savings from not having to provide schooling, healthcare, financial assistance, social services to ppl who have no right to live in this country. They are paying the least amount of taxes, but sucking up services left and right. If Ariz' financial problems and budget deficit could be fixed, it would be a good blueprint for other states to follow and implement. Let's hope that they don't kill it like they did Prop 187.

I hope it does pass....it's only fair to those that actually went through the whole legal process already to become citizens here before.

First of all Illegals get NO financial assistance,No health care and Yes they pay taxes and cannot get refunds like the rest of us.

Second, it will cost the state of AZ about 23thousand dollars each to detain & return the illegal home.
We currently have a deficit here to the point where the state has even sold some of its buildings and is now renting them.

I personally know of someone who is here illegally and was deported. I was shocked because he was back in Phoenix in 9 days.

Now call me crazy but, I would rather work on the border to prevent crossings in the first place and make our country safer by preventing any ole terrorist from entering and then work on the illegal problem.

We also now have Mexico itself warning its citizens they may have trouble if going to AZ.
Well they happen to come here and spend Billions annually shopping here.
Way to go AZ.

We agree on pretty much nothing but I'm with you 110% on this. Rep coming your way!

That would be a BIG NO. Arizona is already getting cancellations for visits to it's state. And all the RICH Mexicans that love to shop at malls, in border states like AZ, TX...you can say good-bye to all that $$$ too. The pressure is starting and only going to get worse for AZ. Set back, watch, and learn what's happens to states that intend to harass it's citizens.

The illegals' kids are the recipients of many taxpayer benefits due to the perversion of the 14th Amendment which considers them to be natural born citizens. Children also qualify for food stamps, healthcare, etc. while the illegal parents pay little in FIT, exception for those who work bajo la mesa. Costs for detaining them? Just pass the bill on to the Feds. They'll just print some more $$ to pay for it. I did read that Mexican visitors spend some $2.3B/yr, some of which may be missed. Perhaps it'll be a wash.
As far as fleabag Mexico warning its citizens, who cares? The ultra-rich whities that control Mexico should create opportunities for the majority mestizo popul so that they don't have to flee their native land.

Fix it's budget? AZ is going to LOSE so much revenue, it's going to make their heads spin. So many companies are going to stay AWAY from Arizona. Superbowl....Don't expect one, anytime soon.
