Arizona rocks!

Note: This post was originally made over a year ago. There may be new developments since then; I try to avoid the news as much as possible these days.

Hispanics flee Arizona ahead of immigration law

Arizona’s tough new immigration enforcement law is fueling an exodus of Hispanics from the state seven weeks before it goes into effect, according to officials and residents in the state.

Though no one has precise figures, reports from school officials, businesses and individuals indicate worried Hispanics — both legal and illegal — are leaving the state in anticipation of the law, which will go into effect July 29.

The law hasn’t taken effect yet and it’s already working!

“They’re leaving to another state where they feel more welcome,” he said.

Yay!

Arizona gov. signs bill targeting schools’ ethnic studies

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill targeting a school district’s ethnic studies program, hours after a report by United Nations human rights experts condemned the measure.

State schools chief Tom Horne, who has pushed the bill for years, said he believes the Tucson school district’s Mexican-American studies program teaches Latino students that they are oppressed by white people.

Public schools should not be encouraging students to resent a particular race, he said.
