Mass exodus of illegals from Arizona?

Mass exodus of illegals from Arizona?

There are 104 comments on the www.mydesert.com story from Jun 27, 2010, titled Mass exodus of illegals from Arizona?. In it, www.mydesert.com reports that:

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.

But to stay is to be under the scrutiny of the nation's most stringent immigration laws and the potentially greater threat of being caught, arrested and deported. They also perceive a growing hostility toward Hispanics, in general.

On the quarter-mile stretch of Phoenix's Belleview Street where Ruiz and Suriano live, more than half the apartments and single-family homes have “for rent” signs out front.

The friends say most of the vacancy signs went up after the new law was signed in late April.

“Everyone's afraid,” Arias says.

<quoted text> Them I would get something in writting. In 1940 FDR and Congress made it illegel, of any legal resident not to have their green card or visa on their person. 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.
