GOP: Arizona-Style Immigration Crackdown in California Unlikely - HispanicBusiness.com

Quote:
Conservative Republicans in Sacramento want California to approve a similar crackdown, but they realize it's next to impossible in a Democratic-controlled Legislature.

"California is not Arizona," said Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-Chino Hills. "I don't think we have the same political climate that's prepared for that. The population's feelings are different from state to state as well."

I agree...California bears little resemblance to Arizona, and it won't happen here....whether or not it happens there.

It won't even happen in AZ, is my guess. This is going to get overturned and backfire on AZ badly. Good job AZ, you just shifted the spotlight off illegals and onto your policy, you also just energized the Hispanic voter population which has been historically inactive in AZ...30% of the AZ population are Hispanic.

Epic Fail.

Best part of the linked article:

"Racial profiling is just a tactic used by pro-open borders people to get the law misinterpreted so people feel it's an oppressive law against a certain people," said Raymond Herrera, founder and president of We The People California's Crusader, a Claremont-based group opposed to illegal immigration. "It's not aimed at Latinos; it's aimed at illegal aliens."

Well I for one as a California native would LOVE if they passed a bill like AZ's.

The status Que isn't going to work. We either enforce our borders so that we curb this invasion or we change our social service network, modify the 14th and ensure the only residents getting social services are Americans.

Wheretdo the people backing this open border idea think the money is going to come from to support their social service network? Seriously? CA is nearly broke, my County is nearly broke and my City is sure as heck hurting in a big way.

How about people start to pay their own way?

Cracking down on Employers is the only solution. As long as they hire them, they will come. I don't see why this is so hard to do. Take the hiring managers to jail, fine the CEO, freeze their bank accounts ...charge them as Capital Terrorists.

As someone with ties to both states I always chuckle when I hear statements like this. For all the differences between the 2 states I've always felt they have many similarities. It's funny how many midwestern transplants in AZ have so many misconceptions about CA and how when I'm in CA my family and friends there think AZ is basically Mississippi in the desert. It's funny how wrong both parties are.

That might change if Arizona's law is upheld and instituted.You will have Illegals flooding out,with California being the destination for most of these undesirebles.Then you will see Californians take action.Remember there was many who said it wouldn't happen in Arizona,Now Look!

illegals may flock to CA for protection, but with our high costs of living, i can't imagine them being here for long. we already have a high unemployment rate and a very high number of unskilled foreign workers, there just aren't enough jobs here to support a flood of low income workers. even if you get free social services, you still have an income to feed your family and put a roof over your head. i'm not quite sure we'll see a significant amount of reverse migration back to mexico and central american, but i'm guessing many will move on to other states to the north and the east of AZ rather than to the west. the ramifications of this new law in AZ are quite interesting to ponder: immigration patterns, local economies, potential supreme courts hearings, etc...
