    Hispanics flee Arizona ahead of immigration law

    By Alan Gomez, USA TODAY
    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.

    Schools in Hispanic areas report unusual drops in enrollment. The Balsz Elementary School District is 75% Hispanic, and within a month of the law's passage, the parents of 70 students pulled them out of school, said District Superintendent Jeffrey Smith. The district lost seven students over the same one-month period last year, and parents tell Smith the Arizona law is the reason for leaving.

    Looks like the new law is having the desired effect. Now if they would just do the same (enforce our current laws) on a national scale, the problem would be solved. Good job Arizona.

    The desired effect is to chase away hispanics?

    I thought it was about illegal immigrants. According to the story, the exodus is not limited to illegals.

    What problem did it solve again? Was the purpose just to kick Hispanics out of the State then? Cause that's the effect and you claim that's the desired effect. Kicking Hispanic people out. Where, pray tell, do you think they're going? Mexico? Back home? To another US state? And what, pray tell, do you think is the root cause of the acceptance of illegal immigration. Oh sure, some of us like to run our mouths; but how many are willing to pay the price at the grocery store or on lawn care or the numerous other ways we've exploited illegal immigrants to get cheap labor? I dare say not as many as there are those running their mouths about this.

    In the end this is our fault because we support it through our consumerism. If you don't like it, you're going to have to stop supporting it. But while there are people pretending to be big, telling these people to go home, or thinking we need to get tough on it; most of those people would not accept a disruption to their everyday life for it.

    If this is illegal immigrants leaving the state, then that's good. If this is legal immigrants or natives that are leaving the state because they're afraid of being discriminated against, then that's bad for everyone involved

    Speculation is that the legal immigrants that are leaving fear that they are guilty of aiding and abetting a crime....... in other words, they fear they will be prosecuted for helping their friends and relatives to come here ILLEGALY. As they should be.

    I don’t care if others leave, that is their choice….. I do care that the ILLEGAL ALIENS are leaving, that is what the law was intended for.

    Thanx for your opinion, I disagree.

    So you don't care how many innocents get caught up so long as you can get after your percieved threat. And you're willing to use any and all government force necessary to accomplish the job; against the innocent and guilty a like. Nice, real nice. Fascism, just so you're aware, never ends any place good. Sure right now you're going after the hispanics, but you've no guarantee it will stop with that group.

    I know you do. You seem to favor draconian, large, and intrusive government while taking no personal responsibility for any of your actions. In sort...a neo-con.

    Man, I remember when conservatives stood for small, responsible government and people owning up to their actions and the consequences there of. Ahhh the good ol' days.

    Nothing in your article that I see backs that claim. You got something to back it up? It sounds...far fetched to say the least.
