Do they feel it will be part of their burden to provide for the thousands of illegals who potentially will flee from Arizona to parts of California? The Mexican government certainly doesn't seem like they want them to come back.

Maybe but it's extremely unintelligent of the California politicans to broadcast what great humanitarians they are and how California would gladly embrace anyone who wants to come here illegally or otherwise.

I believe this will have the effect of California now getting many illegals now from Arizona as well as any who were planning to cross the border and head into Arizona. Texas and New Mexico politicians are laying kind of low - for this very reason I think.

Next thing you know, the State will start buying radio, TV and print ads advertising for the illegals to come to Calif with enticements of great schools, FREE Medi-Cal, public assistance, subsidized housing, etc. well, 3 out of 4 ain't bad.

Yes with some counties in California with already over 20%, 25% unemployed people, it's time to hold off with all the "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Sure it sounds good, but how do they really expect to pay for them all once they arrive? Wait until the politicans tell the Americans out of work for months that the unemployment checks can't go on any longer yet they're doing all they can to entice more of that cheap labor to move on in.

California's unemployment rate is sky high as is Arizona's yet Mexico itself has an unemployment rate any American state would envy.

Mexico's unemployment rate is 4.81%.
