Are Harsh Immigration Laws Bad for Business?

Arizona has proved both an example of both positive and negative consequences for the 22 copy-cat states considering immigration enforcement legislation. On one hand, residents who supported action on illegal immigration were appeased, and Republicans such as Gov. Jan Brewer and Sen. John McCain were able to turn their support for the state’s immigration law into easy primary victories.

But there were some clear financial drawbacks, which have become a rallying point for legislators who oppose similar legislation in their states. Arizona was hit with a costly federal lawsuit that Brewer vows she will take to the Supreme Court if necessary. The state faces boycotts from cities, groups and even musical artists around the country. One Arizona construction company lost a $3 million contract bid earlier this month with Santa Monica, Calif., and the Arizona Hotel and Lodging Association said the state has lost at least 40 conventions and $15 million so far.

Arizona has tried to fight back: A task force charged with improving Arizona’s reputation post-SB 1070 awarded a $100,000 contract yesterday to a Phoenix public relations agency to help the Arizona Office of Tourism draw tourists to the state.

Florida legislators are using concerns about tourism to push back against an anti-immigration bill proposed for the next legislative session. The bill, proposed by defeated Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bill McCollum and some state representatives, promised to be “tougher” than the Arizona law. While pushing for tougher immigration enforcement may be good for short-term political victories, opponents argue the law would hurt Florida business.

“We have a lot of Latin Americans who travel here on tourist visas,” Rep. Juan Carlos Zapata, a Republican member of the Florida Legislature Hispanic Caucus, said on a conference call earlier this week. “What kind of message do we send to them? Would they be afraid to come here if that happens? They have other places they can travel to, so obviously that would be a concern.”

In Utah, where Republican Rep. Stephen Sandstrom introduced legislation like Arizona’s, opposing lawmakers have argued the bill would cost Utah millions of dollars in detention costs, increased enforcement measures and potential lawsuits. “This bill is fiscally irresponsible,” Democrat Sen. Luz Robles told the Salt Lake Tribune last week. “We don’t have the money to pay for these types of issues.”

Fear of a lawsuit isn’t enough for all lawmakers: Despite arguments from state Democrats that the state should leave immigration alone because a federal judge found portions of SB 1070 unconstitutional, Colorado Colorado GOP members have said they plan to move ahead with immigration legislation.

Note: The original source for this story provided an incorrect value for the contract awarded by the Arizona Office of Tourism. The post has been updated to reflect the change.

This whole article is written as though Elise Foley has NO idea at all why it was written, and implemented. As though she has NO idea what sort of trouble the illegal aliens were causing. She has written the articles also, as though she has done absolutely no research on the issues at all. Somebody give her this and see if it doesn't help a great deal on her next effort.

We need to audit businesses nationwide, with copious fines, confiscation of business assets and in a second or third offense– a prison sentence. Is the immigration Czar John Morton writing his own law and undermining laws enacted by Congress?

Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A): A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: * assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or * encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

Not much said–if anything in the national Liberal press, about the Immigration Czars silence on letting non-criminal illegal aliens off the hook. Isn't it Federal law that–ALL–illegal aliens must be deported? Everybody who entered America illegally is just that–ILLEGAL. It has not gone unnoticed that the Media, always consigns to an illegal alien as an illegal immigrant. They are not illegal immigrants they are illegal aliens. They broke the law, whether its civil or a criminal offense? Is this some form of an antidote for an avenue to pass an AMNESTY? If theses officials we trusted to work for the people in Washington are not doing there job.who will? According to some Immigration attorney's in Houston, Texas unless you are a criminal alien with felonies, the judges are releasing them back onto the streets. THE US IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS SERVICE ARE CIRCUMVENTING THE LAW.

Knowing this new direction, millions of more illegal aliens will determine its easy to break into America and apply for welfare, receive free hospital treatment and get their children educated–on you dime. Stealing your jobs, stealing your SOCIAL SECURITY. YES! Your Social Security pensions are in jeopardy to the massive tune of 2.6 Trillion dollars as according to the Heritage Foundation.. If your ready to accept even more millions of impoverished illegal foreigners and their families, stealing your Social Security? THEN OPEN THE DOORS! DO YOU WANT AN OVERPOPULATED NATION WITH A SHORTAGE OF BASIC NECESSITIES LIKE WATER? Don't Secure the fence. Don't question Senator Harry Reid(D-NV) why the 2006 Secure Fence Act was severely underfunded. Millions of incorrigible corporate owners will love you for it, so they can hire cut-price labor with no responsibilities.EVERY INCUMBENT, CAREER POLITICIAN WHO HAS A BAD IMMIGRATION RECORD, BEGINNING WITH SEN. REID AND HIS CZARS MUST BE REMOVED FROM FROM THEIR SEAT IN WASHINGTON. JOIN NUMBERSUSA AND AID IN FIGHTING AGAINST AMNESTY OR BENEFITS FOR THIS INVASION. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Tell your Representative in Washington at 202-224-3121 and State level officials.

At least she is writing about it. This is a huge issue and no one in Washington will address it until the citizens of the United States stand up and say no more. I have been reading the articles about mass graves in Mexico and it makes perfect sense to try and leave that country. But I also read that South America is now having an issue with the Cartels. The immigration would stop if Mexico became a real protector of the people. It is not America's job to protect and support other nations poor, it is the country of origin's job.

It's news to the 500,000 or so illegal immigrants deported last year that the Feds aren't enforcing immigration laws, a higher figure for one year than any year under Bush 2.0. It's also less of a problem since an estimated million or so have self-deported thanks to the tanked economy of the last 2.5 years.

Another ginned-up issue by the GOP. While we're talking stats, Latinos/Hispanics represent 80 percent of the illegal immigration problem. 20 percent come from other parts of the world. 40 percent of illegal immigrants don't come here illegally, but overstay everything from student and work visas to work permits, this is a ripe area for enforcement since there's virtually no follow-up at present. Way better then SB1070 and other such “feel-good legislation for bigots” such as the other commenters here.

How AZ wants to make up a big chunk of the estimated 25-29 billion in trade annually with Mexico or convince their nearly third of the population of legal Latino origin that The Law isn't focused on harassing them is an open question.

Somehow, some way, we've got to turn off the gushing faucet of money being spent on latinas having millions of babies at our expense. They should never be considered citizens that are our responsibility to raise if they mother has sneaked over the border and immediately start the baby making business at our expense.

We are a country first and foremost! A country with a democratic form of government can not last long when there is NO LOYALTY from the government to its people, or from the citizens to one another. That is the problem we face today.

As for Mexico foregoing any part of its trade surplus with the US be it in Arizona or elsewhere, don't be naive. The US has a trade deficit with Mexico through Jun 2010 of $33,1 billion, in 2009 it was $47.7 billion, in 2008 it was $64.8 billion, and in 2007 it was $74.8 billion. The last thing Mexico is going to do is incite a trade war with the US when they are racking up billions of dollars. Check your facts before you pull numbers out to the air. My source is the US Census Bureau, what's yours? See

It seems the travel boycott is having some effect on the Arizona hotel industry.
These numbers are based on a comparison over July, 2009 the worst year ever for Arizona.

“Among the Top 25 Markets, ALL BUT ONE market reported occupancy increases and 8 top markets reported double-digit increases.”

“Phoenix, Arizona, posted the only occupancy decrease, falling 1.4 percent to 43.6 percent. Phoenix posted the largest revenue per available room decrease, falling 4.2 percent to US$31.91.”

Businesses will be opened or expand in the United States once we can get a strong demand for products or services internally, USA is the mayor consumer globally so local and outsourced American businesses depend on that demand, we are the capitalism engine of the World, if 95% Americans get a tax break with a new Tax reform as the president promised the renewed expenditure capacity of all Americans will get the United States out of its economic recession overnight. Why people don’t get that we are in this economic recession because Americans lost their expenditure capacity when the Bush administration set up gas prices to rise up to $5 per gallon in less than 6 months that’s the risk that our financial system couldn’t take and nobody could prevent because the reasons why we suffered such gas price increases while simultaneously Bush and Dick Cheney got billions out of their petroleum empires are unknown until this day. Now how Americans can trust conservatives again. The whole immigration lampoon is smoke and mirrors tactics from Conservatives to diverse voters’ attention about Tax reform, most conservative politicians are using the topic as a Trojan horse to take control of the senate and congress. Get your priorities straight when you vote next November, if we ended up with a conservative based republican majority in the Senate and the Congress they will block the tax cuts the president promised for 95% of Americans and we will suffer a prolonged economic recession. Ask your representatives about tax reform before you vote in November.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more Perfect Union, establish Justice, insure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the Common Defense, promote the General Welfare, and Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,”…We support Immigration Reform. We deserve a coherent answer to our concerns about immigration from our Government and the new border security bill is a great start foreign criminals shall be the main focus. It’s all about economics! Removing undocumented workers from the U.S. would sum a total loss of $1.8 trillion in annual spending on top of a $651.5 billion reduction in annual economic output, according to a study by the economic analysis firm The Perryman Group. It would cost about $28 billion per year to apprehend illegal immigrants, $6 billion a year to detain them, $500 million for extra beds, $2 million to judicially process them and $1.6 billion to transport them home; summing a total of $230 Billion as the outrageous amount it would cost over the next five years to enact the scenario of the mass-deportation caucus and deport all the undocumented population, according to a report by the Center for American Progress. In contrast Legalization of undocumented immigrants would significantly expand the economy—by a cumulative $1.5 trillion in gross domestic product over 10 years. A deportation approach, by contrast, would have the cumulative effect of draining $2.5 trillion over 10 years from the U.S. economy. Illegal immigrants are paying taxes to Uncle Sam too. Paycheck withholding collects much of the federal tax from illegal workers, just as it does for legal workers. But some illegal immigrants choose to file taxes and write a check come April 15, using a tax filing number offered by the IRS so it can collect income tax from foreign workers. The latest figures available indicate it will amount to billions of dollars in federal income, Social Security and Medicare taxes this year. One rough estimate puts the amount of Social Security taxes alone at around $9 billion per year. Most importantly the current immigration reform proposal will promote Social Security and Medicare funding without rising taxes to current citizens by imposing a waiting period of 8 years for the legalized immigrants to be able to naturalize as part of their penalty. Social Security and Medicare funding for current citizens can be achieved with the new proposal for immigration reform because in the meanwhile legalized immigrants won’t access benefits after we do the tax contributions the Legalized immigrants will pay to us during 8 years will create a surplus that will warranty an outgoing retirement benefits collection by current citizens without increasing our taxes today. The assumption of transferable skills claimed by the pro-fascism neo-Nazi caucus is ridiculous most unemployed American skill sets and education backgrounds are not match for jobs that immigrants are taking.In contradiction to secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, the Arizona confederate approach will create a monumental chaos around the Nation. Our domestic tranquility as citizens will be lost and the states will spend more in lawsuits and law enforcement misdirected resources at the cost of our safety on top of the massive federal costs of mass deportations. At the end is about fiscal responsibility and ensuring our economic recovery.

Whom do you believe? Glenn Beck a radical radio and Fox News host, who is the mastermind behind malevolent propaganda used by the Tea Party. Glenn Beck, a personality media with a history of illicit drugs and alcohol addiction, evidently the son of a coward, beck is being rewarded for his subversive political lampoon at the cost of the general welfare of all Americans as it is estimated that Beck is making 26 Million a year for his seditious fixation to the Tea Party. Beck was the first in suggesting phony Nazi and Communist references to demonize the current administration pursuing his own financial gain but now his tactics are backfiring at him because of the existence of a real Nazi Socialist Movement behind Arizona SB-1070 immigration law. Nothing will best for our Country that the deportation of Beck back to Hell. Or you believe in Senator Pierce Russell the Politian behind the defeated Arizona SB-1070 fascist law who was found associated with the neo-Nazi J.T. Ready the leader of the gang that dares to blend the red, white and blue of our bellowed American Flag with the Nazi swastika and parade in Arizona as the Nazi Socialist movement (NSM). Don’t let the Nazi Socialist ideological establishments or seditious lampoons tear down our Constitution. God forbid phony conservatives, the Nazi Socialist fanatics or those enriching themselves by spreading malicious misinformation, are successful in sabotaging the immigration and tax reform efforts we will lose our prosperity by losing our values as Americans.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/36485224/Appellants-O…

While the federal government may have original jurisdiction to enforce federal immigration laws, and declare war, the federal government does not have exclusive jurisdiction to enforce federal immigration laws; and states are requested and encouraged — under laws enacted by Congress — to assist the enforcement of federal immigration laws. US States are encouraged to engage in war, if invaded.
See: Article 1 Section 10, Clause 3 and Article 4 Section 4.

The reality is.. when tourists come to this country, they want to know the community they are going to is safe and secure. If they don't want safe and secure in Mexico, for example, they can stay there and be in a world of danger if they like.

Same thing in the U.S. People were NOT going to the parks in Arizona because it was dangerous. People were NOT going to Arizona because it had gang graffiti all over the end walls in the residential communities. Now that Arizona is probably the safest place in the U.S. to go to, the people who will visit, and come and live, are the kind of people a community wants to have. Hooray.. it worked!!

But reverse this a bit. When the gangs found out they could come through AZ, that IS where they came through. Arizona has a small population, and they cannot afford to get out there and stop the flood of dopers coming over on their way to California. Until Obama finally decided to protect the people of that State, they could easily have over run the place with dope couriers zooming back and forth.

The Arizona Law did a whole lot of good for the people of that state, but also for the people of all the surrounding states. It was one very excellent law!

Sean loves to use statistics.. but while statistics don't lie, liars use statistics. Go out there and try and find any of the statistics he uses and they are not there. In fact, the information at the GAO site is far, far different, and the GAO is NOT tied to the Administration apron at all. I cannot, and I don't know anyone who has found the statistics Sean uses.

But also.. as it now stands, if an illegal alien is working under the table, he does not pay taxes, is eligible for welfare, (and that includes welfare from the Federal Government), is eligible for rent support payments, and food stamps. If he has one fake I.D., he can set two accounts up in no time at all as long as fingerprints are not taken.

When the illegal aliens are arrested and checked, they are busted, and they either return to their home country or they starve to death.

I like it.. stop the welfare and fraud. Detain and deport the illegal aliens and with them gone, American Citizens who DO pay taxes enter the roles, and then too, the economic prosperity Sean is talking about really will happen.

ALL ARE GODS CHILDREN. NO HUMAN IS ABOVE ANOTHER. ALL ARE CREATED BY ONE ALMIGHTY GOD WHO LOVES ALL HIS CHILDREN.
I AM NOT SAYING DON'T CLOSE THE BORDERS I AM SAYING STOP THE FOOLISH HATE AND IGNORANCE.

What both these Republicans FORGOT to Mention in their SPIN POLITICS is that

It’s all about economics! Removing undocumented workers from the U.S. would total a loss of $1.8 trillion in annual spending and $651.5 billion in annual economic output, according to a study by the economic analysis firm The Perryman Group. It would cost about $28 billion per year to apprehend illegal immigrants, $6 billion a year to detain them, $500 million for extra beds, $2 million to judicially process them and $1.6 billion to transport them home. $230 Billion is the estimated amount it would cost over the next five years to enact the scenario of the mass-deportation caucus and deport the undocumented population, according to a report by the Center for American Progress. Legalization of undocumented immigrants would significantly expand the economy—by a cumulative $1.5 trillion in gross domestic product over 10 years. A deportation approach, by contrast, would have the cumulative effect of draining $2.5 trillion over 10 years from the U.S. economy. Illegal immigrants are paying their share of taxes, they pay the same taxes as you and me when they purchase anything, They don't carry a card that says Undocumented Immigrant, DON'T CHARGE TAXES
Start looking at FACTS & NUMBERS.

Who’s behind these laws?

The Immigration Reform Law Institute, or IRLI, the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, drafted the Arizona law and most of the copycat bills. The Southern Poverty Law Center designated FAIR a hate group because of its founder’s writings, its repeated participation with white nationalist groups, and its receipt of major funding from a racist organization.

Copycat laws frequently rely on the work of attorney Kris Kobach, who works for IRLI. Kobach’s lawyering has cost localities who have hired him millions of dollars while the laws have been found unconstitutional. The Arizona law was brought forth by State Senator Russell Pearce, who the Arizona press has described as having a history of associating with neo-Nazis and sending anti-Semitic emails.

This week, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) came out with a report entitled, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, which discusses the costs of unauthorized immigration to the United States. As usual, FAIR has put out a highly misleading fiscal snapshot of the costs allegedly imposed on U.S. taxpayers by unauthorized immigrants and completely discounts the economic contributions of unauthorized workers and consumers. Moreover, FAIR inflates their costs in a variety of ways and conveniently ignores any contributions that would offset these costs.

While the publication is long and deals with a wide range of issues that warrant more dissection by credible economic experts, the trade publication Education Week has already begun the deconstruction with an item that sheds light on their misleading claims about providing English language services in schools.

Another argument FAIR makes, which makes it hard to glean what their solution would be is the high cost of deporting undocumented workers which FAIR blames on the immigrants themselves. It's a somewhat circular argument to say that the cost of undocumented immigrants includes the cost of failing law enforcement efforts. So, in essence, FAIR is saying that the deport-them-all approach costs too much money and doesn't work. Yet their “solution” is to spend even more money on enforcement.

FAIR's data is meant only to reinforce their vision of “attrition through enforcement.” It is not rooted in an effort to move the immigration debate forward. Therefore, passing comprehensive immigration reform – which would yield a cumulative $1.5 trillion in added U.S. gross domestic product over 10 years – is the only sound economic decision the United States can make.

Before you Scream and show Ignorance and Hate at least read the Immigration Law regarding Undocumented Immigrnats. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c111:1:./…

The Undocumented immigrants paying more taxes than you think!!

http://www.cfr.org/content/publications/attachm…

http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/

http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/images/File/fa…

Eight million Undocumented immigrants pay Social Security, Medicare and income taxes. Denying public services to people who pay their taxes is an affront to America’s bedrock belief in fairness. But many “pull-up-the-drawbridge” politicians want to do just that when it comes to Undocumented immigrants.

The fact that Undocumented immigrants pay taxes at all will come as news to many Americans. A stunning two thirds of Undocumented immigrants pay Medicare, Social Security and personal income taxes.

Yet, nativists like Congressman Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., have popularized the notion that illegal aliens are a colossal drain on the nation’s hospitals, schools and welfare programs — consuming services that they don’t pay for.

In reality, the 1996 welfare reform bill disqualified Undocumented immigrants from nearly all means tested government programs including food stamps, housing assistance, Medicaid and Medicare-funded hospitalization.

The only services that illegals can still get are emergency medical care and K-12 education. Nevertheless, Tancredo and his ilk pushed a bill through the House criminalizing all aid to illegal aliens — even private acts of charity by priests, nurses and social workers.

Potentially, any soup kitchen that offers so much as a free lunch to an illegal could face up to five years in prison and seizure of assets. The Senate bill that recently collapsed would have tempered these draconian measures against private aid.

But no one — Democrat or Republican — seems to oppose the idea of withholding public services. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law that requires everyone who gets Medicaid — the government-funded health care program for the poor — to offer proof of U.S. citizenship so we can avoid “theft of these benefits by illegal aliens,” as Rep. Charlie Norwood, R-Ga., puts it. But, immigrants aren’t flocking to the United States to mooch off the government.

According to a study by the Urban Institute, the 1996 welfare reform effort dramatically reduced the use of welfare by undocumented immigrant households, exactly as intended. And another vital thing happened in 1996: the Internal Revenue Service began issuing identification numbers to enable illegal immigrants who don’t have Social Security numbers to file taxes.

One might have imagined that those fearing deportation or confronting the prospect of paying for their safety net through their own meager wages would take a pass on the IRS’ scheme. Not so. Close to 8 million of the 12 million or so illegal aliens in the country today file personal income taxes using these numbers, contributing billions to federal coffers.

No doubt they hope that this will one day help them acquire legal status — a plaintive expression of their desire to play by the rules and come out of the shadows. What’s more, aliens who are not self-employed have Social Security and Medicare taxes automatically withheld from their paychecks.

Since undocumented workers have only fake numbers, they’ll never be able to collect the benefits these taxes are meant to pay for. Last year, the revenues from these fake numbers — that the Social Security administration stashes in the “earnings suspense file” — added up to 10 percent of the Social Security surplus.

The file is growing, on average, by more than $50 billion a year. Beyond federal taxes, all illegals automatically pay state sales taxes that contribute toward the upkeep of public facilities such as roads that they use, and property taxes through their rent that contribute toward the schooling of their children.

The non-partisan National Research Council found that when the taxes paid by the children of low-skilled immigrant families — most of whom are illegal — are factored in, they contribute on average $80,000 more to federal coffers than they consume. Yes, many illegal migrants impose a strain on border communities on whose doorstep they first arrive, broke and unemployed.

To solve this problem equitably, these communities ought to receive the surplus taxes that federal government collects from immigrants. But the real reason border communities are strained is the lack of a guest worker program.

Such a program would match willing workers with willing employers in advance so that they wouldn’t be stuck for long periods where they disembark while searching for jobs. The cost of undocumented aliens is an issue that immigrant bashers have created to whip up indignation against people they don’t want here in the first place.

With the Senate having just returned from yet another vacation and promising to revisit the stalled immigration bill, politicians ought to set the record straight: Illegals are not milking the government. If anything, it is the other way around.

The Undocumented Immigrants pay the exact same amount of taxes like you and me when they buy Things, rent a house, fill up gas, drink a beer or wine, buy appliances, play the states lottery and mega millions . Below are the links to just a few sites that will show you exactly how much tax you or the Undocumented Immigrant pays , so you see they are NOT FREELOADERS, THEY PAY TAXES AND TOLLS Exactly the same as you, Now if you take out 10% from your states /city Budget what will your city/state look like financially ?

Stop your folly thinking , you are wise USE YOUR WISDOM to see the reality. They pay more taxes than you think, Including FEDERAL INCOME TAX using a ITN Number that is given to them by the IRS, Social Security Taxes and State taxes that are withheld form their paychecks automatically.

Taxes, paid by You & the Undocumented are the same in each state check your state : http://www.taxadmin.org/fta/rate/sales.html

Look at your own statistics Arizonian Confederate: In Arizona, police could arrest them under the new state law, but keeping them in already crowded jails costs roughly $100 a day per person. For 5,000 people, imprisonment costs could add up to $182.5 million a year. That's a hefty charge for a state struggling with a budget deficit of at least $368 million.

The Republicans are so funny, when the economy is good you say let’s all celebrate “Cinco de Mayo, my brothers” but when the economy is down “it’s all your fault, you damn immigrant”. When most Americans (with Latin America roots) go to the polls this November we will remember that the GOP has gone on a nationwide rant in proposing and passing several anti-immigration legislation and have continue to blame the immigrant for the flat economy or worse. We will remember who stands with us and who stands against us, so trying to stop it now is somewhat funny, but go ahead, you will not change our minds. Plus the more radical of the GOP are now attacking our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, in a misguided attempt to garner some much needed votes, they really are fools, and leading the GOP towards obscurity because they are no longer a party of ideas, just of empty suits. Your hate made you do it, in November; you will reap what you have sown. I wonder what Abraham Lincoln would say today about the GOP, he unlike you was a man of ideas.
