The #1 political axiom.....Americans vote their pocket book
Since Arizona passed it's tough immigration law, many of the half million illegal aliens there are saying that they'll leave the state and seek jobs elsewhere. I predict that these other states will see a spike in social service demands, crime, wage depression, and unemployment claims by citizens. Hopefully this will compel them to pass similar illegal-immigration laws as well.
Obama and the democrats want badly to amnetize(is that a word?) all 12-20million illegals and in effect create a permanent majority for themselves, because most of those will be on the government welfare rolls and will certainly vote for democrats to keep the cash and prizes coming. It's the same reason democrats want Puerto Rico to become the 51st state....instant democrat voters.
But even Obama and Emanual aren't stupid and idealistic enough to try to pass an amnesty bill in an election year. Many current democrat voters are losing their jobs and/or having their wages depressed because of illegal immigrants working for peanuts. Legitimizing that will alienate those dem voters and make conservatives out of them. If a candidate or party is seen by the voters as taking money out of their pockets, they are likely to lose. All politicians know this. Hopefully this will give time to other state legislatures to pass similar laws.
