Put out the welcome mat?

New report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

FAIR just released a report that shows that Arizona's illegal alien population dropped by 100,000 in 2008. While there was a drop in the number of illegal aliens in other states as well, 8 percent nationally, the estimated 18 percent reduction in Arizona was by for the largest of any state.

In addition the number of people living in poverty fell by 5.5 percent in Arizona and there were more than 40,000 fewer low-wage families in the state in 2009 than in 2005.
According to data from the Arizona Department of Education, Limited English Proficiency classes show about 37,600 fewer students in 2010 than in 2005. The related annual savings was about $97 million.
FBI crime data registered a major drop from 2005 to 2010 in violent crimes in Arizona — by 14.4 percent compared to a 10.4 percent drop nationally. Property crimes declined more steeply — by 21.4 percent, i.e., more than twice the reduction nationwide (10.7%).
Births in the state in 2010 were 13,500 fewer than in 2007. This drop paralleled the reduction in the poverty population and the illegal alien population, and suggests that this also represents a reduction in births paid for by Medicaid.

Less crime, fewer people living in poverty, millions of dollars saved in public education, reduced costs to Medicare. Arizona is proving that attrition through enforcement works!

One question:  The majority of our Oregon Legislators are working hard to legitimize and reward the presence of those in Oregon illegally.

                           So, where do you suppose illegal aliens will settle next?
