Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

NY TIMES SLAMS ARIZONA OVER LOOMING NEW LAW

Rate this Entry

On January 1st, Arizona will enact one of the nation's toughest immigration laws barring action from the courts. Employers found to have hired unauthorized immigrants will lose their business licenses and all employers will be required to use the E-Verify electronic employment verification system. The New York Times has harsh words for the state in its lead editorial today.

    Same old double talk:

    'We have always said that workplace laws should be enforced vigorously'

    BUT...

    'the immigrants will take a big chunk of Arizona's growth and economic vitality with them'

    'families torn apart, breadwinners deported and citizen children on public assistance'

    'They have become integral to our economy'

    'punishment on the undocumented workers who have made it so prosperous'

    Get your bobble head out of the sand.

    Here in Arizona as many as 20% of the K-12 students are in this country illegally. since in Phoenix 75% of your tax bill goes to the schools, this means that if your property tax bill was $2000 then $300 of your hard earned tax dollars are going to educate Mexican Citizens. This is most generous of those of you that support this outrage, but to make matters worse it is forcing our senior citizens living on fixed incomes out of their homes.

    We allow more than enough LEGAL immigrants to this country to assure the growth that our government and big business thrives upon. But it is not fair to be hurting law abiding immigrants and our own citizens for the benefit of opportunistic criminals.

    Really, then how come educated (even masters and PhD), productive LEGAL workers have to wait 10+ years to legally immigrate?

    Add TAX paying to my last comment. Don't believe NumbersUsa, I have my tax records from years and years.

    Arizona will learn the harsh learned lessons of New Jersey and Colorado towns. They will try to get the convicted criminals out of jail to perform the jobs vacated by immigrants and they will fail and face economic hardship specially with a recesion looming in the US economy they will be hard hit because you need economic growth in recesion times. I hope the minuteman are a lending hand to Arizona and fill the jobs vacated by these hard working immigrants.

    I think it is great that the enforcement only approach will get tested on a big scale. Finally, we shall see some hard data. If the Arizona economy collapses, the ani-immigration crowd will never get a shot on the national level. If Arizona does well, this will be a real eye-opener for most of us.

    Is it not incongruous to say 'workplace laws should be enforced vigorously' but then say doing so would be awful for the economy and unfairly inflict punishment on the illegal workers?
