Mass exodus of illegals from Arizona?

Minerva Ruiz, Claudia Suriano and Silvia Arias are undocumented immigrants living in Phoenix who recently held a garage sale hoping to raise enough money to finance an out-of-state move. They are representative of many families facing what they consider a cruel dilemma. To leave, they must pull their children from school, uproot their lives and look for new jobs and homes elsewhere.

You risk imprisonment every second, you do not have papers. And if you have been here for 8 years, why are you not a citizen and avoid this rubbish?
The document needed is called an ALIEN REGISTRATION CARD.

Until my friend, from Poland got his citizenship, the card was green with wavey lines and his picture. He HAD to carry it with him at all times. The card today probably looks different, but the 1940 law still requires you to carry it. FDR's law for WWII has NEVER been voided.
