Illegal immigrants plan to leave over Ariz. law

The law is having the desired effect and it hasn't gone into effect yet.

"Nobody wants to pick us up," Julio Loyola Diaz says in Spanish as he and dozens of other men wait under the shade of palo verde trees and lean against a low brick wall outside the east Phoenix home improvement store.

Many day laborers like Diaz say they will leave Arizona because of the law, which also makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. illegally and directs police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are illegal immigrants.


The law is hugely popular in Arizona and gave the governor a boost in the polls. Now, everyone one wants a similar law. Eleven more states want Arizona's law.

Once again, we see Obama, Pelosi and Reid on the wrong side of what America wants.

Judging by the folks at the link, this law is annoying all the right people on the Left. Another bonus.

It is surprising how even small things can have big benefits. My own state, Tennessee, used to have a "don't ask, don't tell" on driver's licenses. Ads were running on Spanish language radio stations explaining how to get a driver's license, and leverage that into other documents. Fixing that has drastically reduced the problem, and you can now renew your license without waiting several hours. What matters more than what you do is that you follow through rather than just pass cosmetic laws which are not enforced.
