Gee...Whodda Thunk It?

Illegal Immigrants Leaving Arizona And Oklahoma For Texas
Illegal immigrants are coming into Texas, but not from where one might think.

The rush is coming from Arizona, Oklahoma and other states -- places that have recently passed tough new anti-illegal immigrant laws.

The two toughest measures are in Arizona and Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma statute, which took effect in November, makes it a crime to transport, harbor or hire illegal immigrants. Effective Jan. 1, the Arizona law suspends the business license of employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers. On a second offense, the license is revoked.

Anecdotal information seems to indicate that illegal immigrants are leaving these states in growing numbers.

"They're really tightening the screws," said Mario Ortiz, an undocumented Mexican worker who came to Houston after leaving Phoenix last year. "There have been a lot coming -- it could be 100 a day."

In Tulsa, Okla., the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has estimated that 15,000 to 25,000 illegal immigrants have left the area. One builder estimated that 30 percent of the Hispanic work force left Tulsa.
It appears if you sour the milk, they baby will stop drinking. Sooooo... Whatcha' gonna do Texas?

UPDATE!!!

While it seems our state governments "get it" or at least they're beginning too, this is how the federal government is working to fix the illegal immigration problem. Oh no, not our illegal immigration problem...Mexico's illegal immigration problem! From Michelle Malkin: The White House wants a $1.4 billion stimulus/national security package…for Mexico
