Amazing isn't it?!

As a resident of AZ, can tell you that the Law is working to reduce employment of people who are not legally (under current and past laws) entitled to work in the US.

Some of those who are now not so easily able to get these jobs illegally are returning to Mexico, some are moving to other states, especially NM.

I only wish that our US Congress would have enacted legislation to establish temporary workers visas as suggested some time ago. Without their action, States will have to, like AZ, take matters into their own hands.
