Thanks Jim for this update â€“ not sure where it was published, but still good news.
â€œImmigrants are boycotting Arizona by the thousands, showing their outrage with Arizona’s new controversial law SB-1070 by moving elsewhere.
In the small town of Guadalupe, AZ, south of Phoenix, Manuel Renaldo is one of those who is punishing Arizona by leaving. As he loaded his stolen car with his stolen belongings and his family of ten, Renaldo told this reporter through an interpreter, "It’s a matter of principle; I refuse to be supported by a state that treats me like a criminal!"
The effects of the exodus are being felt by Arizona retailers, who are reporting dwindling sales of beer, spray paint, and ammunition. Also hit hard are the state’s hospitals, which have reported a dramatic decline in births and in emergency room visits. Tattoo parlors are in a state of panic.
Renaldo told a reporter through an interpreter, "He and his family are all moving to California, which is a state that will support him and his family with dignity!"
It kind of brings a tear to your eyes, doesn’t it?
