Arizona immigration law could drive Latinos out of state

Adriana Miranda leaned against the door frame and started to sob. Her husband hasn't found steady work in a year. Then, on Friday, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the tough anti-illegal-immigration law that will allow police to arrest illegal immigrants like her. It was the last straw. After seven years in Arizona, the family was moving.

Phoenix resident Adamaris, a 22-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico, said she thinks many illegal immigrants will leave Arizona. "The economy is already bad here, and now with this new law ...," she said. "No, we don't want to stay here." Adamaris, who asked that her last name not be used because she is afraid of being deported, said she plans to wait two months to see if the law survives legal challenges before deciding whether to leave.

Is this bad news?

But it gets better...because now lawyers are avoiding Arizona too...

Arizona immigration bill: Lawyers group to boycott Arizona

The American Immigration Lawyers Association has vowed to boycott the state of Arizona, canceling their fall national convention at the Scottsdale Marriott...The venue's penalty for canceling the event is approximately $92,000...

And The Arizona Hotel & Lodging Association said the estimated economic value of the cancellations ranges from $5,000 for the smaller groups to $45,000 for the larger.

Arizona's immigration law has ripple effect

So, the boycott has cost $45,000 in cancellations but the lawyers have to pay $92,000 for cancelling.

Split the difference? Illegals AND lawyers leaving Arizona in waves...can the news get any better?
They are kidding, this law was drawn up by Lawyers in Kansas so they could make millions suing municipalities.
This is a lawyers dream.

As for the cost the Hotel owners are reeling from cancellations

Maybe when more states crack down on illegal immigration and all illegals
move to DC the government will notice how bad the situation is?

The law will have the desired effect but taking 200-400,000 people out of an economy will have adverse effects - rental vacancies, unsold homes, lower retail sales, lay offs, decreased tax revenues....

The nice thing is that they don't have to climb a fence to leave.
