100K Hispanics Fled AZ After SB1070

From an outraged Associated Press:

Study: 100,000 Hispanics left Arizona after SB1070

By Mark Stevenson, Associated Press – Thu Nov 11, 2010

MEXICO CITY – A new study suggests there may be 100,000 fewer Hispanics in Arizona than there were before the debate over the state’s tough new immigration law earlier this year.

BBVA Bancomer Research, which did the study, worked with figures from the U.S. Current Population Survey. The study says the decline could be due to the law known as SB1070, which partly entered into effect in July, or to Arizona’s difficult economic situation.

Or we suppose "the decline" could be due to ‘global warming.’ (Except we were told that ‘global warming’ would increase the number of illegal aliens coming to the US.)

The study released Wednesday also cites Mexican government figures as saying that 23,380 Mexicans returned from Arizona to Mexico between June and September.

U.S. census figures from 2008 say about 30 percent of people living in Arizona are Hispanic, or about 1.9 million…

So not quite five percent left. Still, it’s a good start. – Assuming they are illegals.

    It’s like the old joke:
    Q: What do you call a 1000 lawyers on the bottom of the sea?
    A: A good start.

    This is a good start now let’s see how many more we can send home.

    Who says nobody wants to print good news these days? But then again I’m sure the liberal elitist who wrote this article were thinking of what Maya Angelou once said: “Effective action is always unjust.”

    I too am from Colorado and were I not in Iraq, would be digging through paperwork and looking at my insurance rates to see how much the uninsured motorist premiums we HAVE to carry are going up…

    Unfortunately, with Hickenlooper coming in as governor of Colorado for the next four years, I can only guess at the chances of Colorado passing any kind of legislation similar to Arizona. Odds more likely no one would give odds….

    AP loves these stories. They are so PC that they will not mention just who these Hispanics are. Are they Americans who decided to move to another state? Are they here illegally and merely decided to move to California? How do they know Hispanics are leaving? I thought the feds could not find any, thus they could not deport illegal aliens.

    Obviously bankers in Mexico know how much is coming in to them each day from the U.S. and now there is less for them to appropriate.

    See: http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1G2-2845800046.html for info on Grupo Financiero BBVA Bancomer, S.A.: “Grupo Financiero BBVA Bancomer S.A. is the second largest financial group in Mexico and includes the nation’s largest bank, Bancomer.”

    I love how they’re not identified as illegal aliens from Mexico.

    Someone who crosses the border, works without papers and births several infants to qualify for money from another country is A MILLION miles away from the average American citizen of Hispanic ancestry.

    And yet the AP doesn’t make this distinction. No, they want you to assume that this law is racist, so it becomes “Hispanics leave the states,” as a sort of exile of an ethnic group comparable to the Trail of Tears. It’s lazy journalism. It would be like describing a hard law on sex offenders who migrate to states with less enforcement as “old white males forced to flee the state.”

    The AP has already made their position clear and they intend to propagandize.

    yeah, I noticed they left Arizona in the store the other day when I was shopping. Help me please. Mam. please please. It wasn’t easy to figure he wanted women sanitary napkins, as I kept picking the wrongs one, he managed to say “no kotex”. and “wings? wings? ohhh. He ended up choosing 2 types to be safe. . Many thanks then he finds me again, and asks how much? So, I went back and showed him how to read the prices. More thank you. Ya know. Those are the kind that people here like to help. It’s the one who don’t appreciate our country that steal, mug, snarl, gangs. They will educate him.

    What is so hard about this?!

    1. Get out of the country.
    2. Get your background check. (you commit a crime in the U.S., you can’t come in, and if you do, you can’t run, we will find you)
    3. Get your passport in Mexico.
    4. Apply for your work Visa with appropriate fees.
    5. Learn English.
    6. Apply for citizenship.
    7. Get out, get back in line, and if you are not a felon, welcome to America!

    MOST countries have paths to citizenship after learning the language, and are good citizens. Why is this so hard to accomplish?

  11. Mae says:

    Many years ago a friend who was involved in the “Chicano” movement told me that the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ( see http://www.loc.gov/rr/hispanic/ghtreaty/ plus the full text at http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?flash=true&doc=26&page=transcript ) allowed in perpetuity the free migration back and forth from Mexico to the U.S. That is what he was taught. It’s not true, of course; but that is what he was taught. That is what Mexicans are still taught–all territories once claimed by Spain and the subsequent Mexican regimes continue to belong to Mexico because the treaty was signed without the “people’s” consent.

    That’s Mexico’s justification for illegal immigration–we are not a legitimate state. The justification for all other “Hispanic” migration is still OK because they are indigenous peoples and they have more right than any European descendant or those of any non-Hispanic country.

    We were there first with the Indians. The Mexicans began to try and take over and slaughter the Indians, and so they moved. Geronimo hated the Mexicans for coming over and killing his family just to steal horses, because Mexican horses are puny. Too bad we can’t get American Indians more involved. Maybe Mexicans gamble alot.
