Illegals boycott Arizona by leaving

Posted on July 27, 2010


Phoenix, AZ (AP) – Thousands of illegal immigrants are showing their outrage with Arizona ‘s controversial new SB-1070 law by boycotting the state and moving elsewhere.

One example of those who are punishing the state by leaving is illegal immigrant Manuel Renaldo. As he loaded his stolen car with his family of twelve’s belongings, Renaldo told this reporter through an interpreter, “It’s a matter of principle, ese. I refuse to be supported by someplace that treats me like a criminal.”

The affects of the exodus are being felt by Arizona retailers who report dwindling spray paint, velour paintings of the Virgin Mary riding a rodeo bronc, and dollar store grocery sales. Cox Communication, Arizona’s leading cable and Internet service provider, has reported a drastic decrease by almost 40 percent of residential reports that neighbors are pirating their cable feed. Phoenix police report that armed robbery of Trails’ drug paraphernalia stores is off by nearly 46 percent.

Rev. Charles Kerning, minister of the St. Vincent DePaul food bank reports that stores of perishable and dry goods are actually available and in abundance for the first time since the fall of 1947.

Also hit hard are Arizona hospitals, who have reported a dramatic decline in births and emergency room visits by illegal aliens.

“We’re ecstatic,” said one administrator for Banner Health in Phoenix . “At this rate we may see a profit one day.”

The boycott/exodus of Arizona by illegals is expected to grow exponentially leading up to the law’s July 29th effective date.
