    Migrants sell up and flee Arizona ahead of crackdown

    Kind of like spraying your house for roaches and the neighbor's house is filthy. They just move on to the next. As long as other states are a haven for law breakers and the federal government does nothing they will just move on to more friendly territory. Good for AZ and good enough for any state that has not got the stomach to make a stand.

    PHOENIX (Reuters) Nicaraguan mother Lorena Aguilar hawks a television set and a few clothes on the baking sidewalk outside her west Phoenix apartment block.

    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 two women are among scores of illegal immigrant families across Phoenix hauling the contents of their homes into the yard this weekend as they rush to sell up and get out before the state law takes effect on Thursday.

    The law, the toughest imposed by any U.S. state to curb illegal immigration, seeks to drive more than 400,000 undocumented day laborers, landscapers, house cleaners, chambermaids and other workers out of Arizona, which borders Mexico.

    It makes being an illegal immigrant a state crime and requires state and local police, during lawful contact, to investigate the status of anyone they reasonably suspect of being an illegal immigrant.

    The U.S. government estimates 100,000 unauthorized migrants left Arizona after the state passed an employer sanctions law three years ago requiring companies to verify workers' status using a federal computer system. There are no figures for the number who have left since the new law passed in April.

    Some are heading back to Mexico or to neighboring states. Others are staying put and taking their chances.

    Illegal is already a crime that is nothing new, kick their ass out of here and open up jobs and housing for the rest of us

  4. Should be pretty easy for INS to clean them up right now. Just drive a van down the street and load them up. How difficult is that?

    Good !! Glad to hear this. Now maybe they will go back to where they came from, and start all over, beginning with doing it all legal.

    Oh Crap! By the end of the summer Massachusetts will be swarming with them!!!

    We have this idiot Attorney General who decided to open her mouth and make this jewel of a remark;
    “technically, it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” She is by far the dumbest *********g D****e B*g I have ever seen... It's really no wonder she lost the election...

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    maybe it's just me.. but don't the words "illegal" and "crime" pretty much always fit together?
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!
