In 2003, according to the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles, 57,600 cars were stolen in Phoenix. It is now the car-jacking capital of the world. Most were SUVs and pickup trucks. At a conservative average of $15,000.00 per vehicle, owner losses exceeded $864 million. Insurance companies in the state suffered incredible claims from policyholders. Worse, how would you like to walk out of your home or business to see your car gone? Imagine the hassle, violation of your hard work and disrespect for your well being. Where did those vehicles go? Who stole them? Take a guess. Arizona is the temporary home of 500,000 illegal aliens. They cost Arizona taxpayers over $1 billion annually in services for schools, medical care, welfare anchor babies, loss of tax base and prisons. Illegals use those vehicles for smuggling more people and drugs from around the world into our country. When the vehicles are recovered, they are smashed-up wrecks in the desert. If not found, they have new owners south of the border as thieves drive the cars through the desert and into Mexico as easily as you drive your kids to soccer practice. THATs how porous our borders are! by Frosty Wooldridge
I can imagine the illegals have lots more fun with California owned cars.

We're in southern California, have had TWO cars stolen in the past eight years, and the cars were never to be seen again. The police told us quite frankly that they probably ended up in "chop shops", or were down in Mexico. One was stolen from the parking lot at my workplace, the other was stolen from a restaurant's parking lot while my husband was on his lunch hour, and his had an alarm system on it. Nothing is safe here anymore.
