Migrants sell up, flee Arizona ahead of crackdown
- read more on news.yahoo.comAs news reports break out on Arizona's Immigration Law due to take effect this Thursday. It seems the News Channels keep on trying to make it all out to be a bad thing. I'm sure most of us know better though.
What they don't seem to realize in most of these articles is that it's already working and it hasn't even taken effect yet.
See as more people leave. More people are able to find work. More people can find affordable housing, and less ID theft is going on. These are just some of the things I don't see the News talking about. Yet it's in all these articles.

A few paces up the street, her undocumented Mexican neighbor Wendi Villasenor touts a kitchen table, some chairs and a few dishes as her family scrambles to get out of Arizona ahead of a looming crackdown on illegal immigrants.
"Everyone is selling up the little they have and leaving," said Villasenor, 31, who is headed for Pennsylvania. "We have no alternative. They have us cornered."

The state's Republican governor, Jan Brewer, signed the law in April in a bid to curb violence and cut crime stemming from illegal immigration.
Polls show the measure is backed by a solid majority of Americans and by 65 percent of Arizona voters in this election year for some state governors, all of the U.S. House of Representatives and about a third of the 100-seat Senate.
Opponents say the law is unconstitution

It is obvious that these people will self deport when there are no jobs and the law is enforced. This article is a good example but we must realize that some will seek refuge in sanctuary cities and states. The law must be applied to all states and since it is a copy of the federal law then this administration must enforce the law.
Ok, class... How many ways can you say 'illegal'?
- Arizona's new law which aims to crack down on illegal aliens is set to take effect in just a few days. Ahead of the July 29 implementation date, lawsuits are flying, and the media are trying everything they can to draw attention to this "controversial" law. The problem is that it's not controversial. It's straightforward, inline with federal law, and is supported by vast majority of Arizona residents. That, of course, doesn't stop liberals from trying to make controversy where controversy doesn't exist.
It's amazing what so-called journalists will do to either stir things up in their favor or tone things down in order to draw sympathy for their cause. Take this Reuters story as an example: Migrants sell up, flee Arizona ahead of crackdown. In it, we can see that it becomes a challenge for the writer to see how many different ways he can describe a person in this country illegally without actually using the word "illegal."
- The author does start off by using the phrase "illegal immigrant" at first, but even that term is misleading. If people have no intention of learning the American culture and adopting the American way of life, are they really "immigrants"?

Arizona immigration law opens farm jobs to unemployed
- read more on www.azcentral.comFor years, both sides of the immigration issue have debated whether immigrants take jobs that Americans won't.
Now, high unemployment and a tough new Arizona immigration law will test that idea in a $9 billion industry: Arizona agriculture.
Arizona needs about 50,000 temporary workers to harvest winter produce, and only 25,000 of those workers typically come from the U.S. side of the border, according to an Arizona farm lobby group.
At least some workers from past years say they won't be returning to Arizona this season.
