Is it working already? Or, is it a typically misleading mainstream media headline? Amanda Lee Myers, AP:
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.
How so? AP’s reporters found three illegal day laborers who planned to move out of Arizona, however…
An estimated 100,000 illegal immigrants have left Arizona in the past two years as it cracked down on illegal immigration and its economy was especially hard hit by the Great Recession.
It looks to me as though Wall Street has already done what Arizona’s government could not.
