Fleeing Arizona’s Immigration Law « The Washington Independent

Fleeing Arizona’s Immigration Law « The Washington Independent

The Washington Post provided an interesting look Sunday into the life of an Arizona woman who illegally entered the country a decade ago. The woman is married to an American and has two U.S.-born children, but fears deportation or violence as anti-illegal immigrant sentiment heats up in the state. She spends much of her time fearful that she will be arrested and deported or attacked by her neighbors, and tells the reporter she has heard rumors of immigration sweeps at shopping centers and bus drivers asking riders for immigration papers.

Of course, the story only focuses on one woman, but it’s nevertheless interesting to note that some illegal immigrants are continuing to leave Arizona even after a federal judge blocked most of the controversial portions of SB 1070. So far, there have been no official statistics on how many people may have left Arizona due to the law, but anecdotal evidence such as lower enrollment in predominately Latino schools points to at least some departures. This could have unintended negative consequences for Arizona, as the non-partisan Migration Policy Institute’s Marc Rosenblum told me in August: “Businesses are feeling an impact, both because they may find a shortage of workers but also a shortage of customers.”

That SB1070 is motivating illegals to self-deport is good. In fact anybody opposed to SB1070, are also opposed to the US Constitution, and should exercise their free will and human rights to leave the US and seek citizenship some place else.
