Here’s another reason Texas should follow Arizona’s lead. It is WORKING already!

From the AP:
Illegal immigrants plan to leave over Ariz. Law

Arizona’s sweeping immigration bill allows police to arrest illegal immigrant day laborers seeking work on the street or anyone trying to hire them. It won’t take effect until summer but it is already having an effect on the state’s underground economy.

“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.

Now, there is some change I can believe in.

If we treated illegal aliens like Mexico treats them:

And at Pundit and Pundette
Obama “sides with the lawless”

    Good one Robot. I think the MSM is going to have to go into extra spin mode for this one. That should be fine, it’ll just accelerate their failure.

    Personally I think Arizona’s new law is a great law. We all recognize that we need to allow a better path to citizenship, but since the state can’t grant the citizenship the only way we can protect ourselves is to enforce harsher penalties against all illegal immigrants. We can’t sort the good and the bad until the Federal government acts. Instead of protesting our actions people should be petitioning their congressmen to reform immigration laws. We just want to keep the criminals and drug dealers out of our state.

    This isn’t a big step towards profiling. If your involved in a crime officers already ask for identification. As American citizen do you think officers shouldn’t be able to ask for identification ever?

    Has anyone even bothered to read the new law instead of repeating what they heard?

    Hey, I don’t care if you’re an automaton, as long as you’re not an Obamaton.
