Arizona took a public-relations punch to the gut after passing the nation's toughest anti-illegal-immigration law earlier this year, but anyone who thinks (or hopes) the state Legislature will lower its profile on the border-security issue in 2011 likely will be disappointed.
The state is positioned like never before to expand its efforts to combat illegal immigration. The November election saw Republican Jan Brewer elected to a second term as governor, largely on the strength of her decision to sign the headline-making law, while the Republican Party added to its already sizable majorities in the state House and Senate.
Most significantly of all, Russell Pearce was elected Arizona Senate president. For those who may not have heard of Mr. Pearce, let's just say that the 63-year-old Republican from Mesa wants to crack down on illegal immigration like desert javelinas want to eat prickly-pear cactus.
"I'm not stopping until the problem is solved, and clearly the problem is not solved," Mr. Pearce said in a telephone interview. "The cost is destroying this country, and it can no longer be ignored. I think America's had it. I think that's why we had the results we did in the election of 2010."
It won't come without a political price. ......

[Excerpt]He’s already getting pushback from the Arizona Republic, which argued in a Monday editorial that such a “wrongheaded quest” would distract from the more pressing matter of Arizona’s budget deficit.[End Excerpt]
(Scoff) Pearce won’t back down-—ever.
Duh! Wonder how much tax money Arizona has had to be spending on illegal immigrants for years?

I fear Jan will turn to the dark side of the force
If Jon Kyl retires, I’d like to see Jan Brewer succeed him.
that would be the “financially troubled” Arizona Republic, a communist party propaganda outlet. I would regard that comment as a positive for Sen. Pierce.
Well, in the minds of the public, it was a PR coup for Arizona. Huge majorities, at last count, support SB 1070. The only "punch to the gut" came from illegals, their mexican government sponsors, the Clinton-appointed judge who threw out most of the law, and the 0bama regime. Those with an operating set of brain cells back Gov. Brewer's efforts to rein in the madness in AZ.
I love Arizona...
Pity they are so invaded by illegal aliens...
You are really invested in failure, aren’t you, Eeyore!
According to the radical hispanic groups, you are not allowed to call them illegals anymore. You have to call them “undocumented workers”. *barf barf barf* Maybe we should call them “undocumented (drug) cartel workers”.
Sooo I suppose “Wet Backs” is out of the question
Do some internet research & purchase anything you can from Arizona that is beneficial to you & yours.
Even if you cannot be there, you can probably find ways to contribute to their economy.
