'Specter of Arizona Immigration Law Slowly Drains Economy'

Posted By on Thu, Jul 29, 2010 at 3:19 PM

While it's been easy for pro-SB 1070 folks to make things up (i.e. rampant beheadings) in order to blame illegal immigrants on everything that ails us, when it comes to Arizona's economy, I hope they are ready to blame themselves.

Check out this CNN report on the Phoenix economy here.

"For sale" signs in English and Spanish adorn brown, sun-scorched lawns and dilapidated parking lots alike, from the heart of downtown Phoenix to as far as Chandler and Mesa — the district of SB 1070's sponsor, Republican Sen. Russell Pearce. Boarded-up big-box stores loom large in their vast emptiness, and rows of abandoned strip mall storefronts outnumber those that are occupied in some parts.
