The USA Today states that Hispanics are fleeing Arizona, however, they, of course, mean illegals. Which is kinda the point of the law: to get the illegals to get the hell out
Arizona’s tough new immigration enforcement law is fueling an exodus of Hispanics from the state seven weeks before it goes into effect, according to officials and residents in the state.
Though no one has precise figures, reports from school officials, businesses and individuals indicate worried Hispanics — both legal and illegal — are leaving the state in anticipation of the law, which will go into effect July 29.
So, in the second paragraph of the story, we find out that the entire premise is all hyperbole and guessing. Apparently, some businesses are seeing lower traffic, and some schools are seeing lower enrollment. Well, gee, it’s a real crying shame that the People of Arizona will no longer have to pay for the schooling of people not entitled to it.
“They’re leaving to another state where they feel more welcome,” he said.
How about just leaving the country?
Businesses serving the Hispanic community say business is down, signaling that illegal immigrants are holding on to cash in anticipation of a move from the state, said David Castillo, co-founder of the Latin Association of Arizona, a chamber of commerce for nearly 400 first-generation Hispanic business owners.
“(Brewer) signed the law, and everything fell apart,” Castillo said. “It’s devastating.”
Jorge Vargas plans to move to New York City because his air-conditioning business relies mostly on Hispanics. “My business is completely dead,” he said.
Let me ask you, Dave and Jorge: do you rely on business from thieves and con men? You know, people engaged in breaking the law? Pretty much the same thing when we are talking about illegals. Personally, it sounds like your business models, well, suck.
Juan Carlos Cruz, an illegal immigrant who has worked in plant nurseries for 20 years, huddled with dozens of relatives over the Memorial Day Weekend in the backyard of his brother’s Phoenix-area home to plot out the family’s next move to avoid what they say will be harassment by police. Virginia and California are the front-runners.
“If I were alone, I’d try to stay. But I have a family, and I have to find a place where we can live with more freedom,” said Cruz, who hopes to move July 4 to blend in with holiday weekend traffic. “This is getting too hard.”
You are not entitled to freedom here in the US, Juan. You are breaking. The. Law.
