Well, we certainly wouldn't want to upset the Sonoran economy

This is from the American Thinker blog:
by Greg Halvorson
You can't make this up. On the heels of Eric Holder condemning Arizona's SB 1070, which he HASN'T READ, comes a verbal lambasting by Sonoran officials. A delegation from the border state recently traveled to Tucson where, whining (in Spanish), they explained that the law "will have devastating consequences." Returning countrymen will apparently burden schools, compete for jobs, stress social services, and cease the practice of sending dineroacross the border to benefit their economy.
This from representative Leticia Amarano-Gamez (in Spanish): "How can they pass a law like this? There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona. Mexico is not prepared for the tremendous problems it will have as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their families return to hometowns without jobs. We are one family, socially and economically," she said of the people who reside in Arizona and her state.
This person is as honest as Calderon who very honestly told Wolf Blitzer about Mexico's immigration laws, which are just a LOT like ours. Only they enforce theirs.

  1. Isn't this the area that our family history is shrouded in mystery in? (Does that make sense?)
