How terrible Arizona’s immigration law really is

There is a lot that needs to be said about how wrong the new immigration law is in Arizona, but nothing like these demographics bring to light how even worse it will really be. From the Real Time Economics:

Hispanics make up roughly a third of Arizona’s 6.6 million people, according to the Census Bureau.

But while half of the state’s older Hispanics are immigrants that came to the U.S. either legally or illegally, about 90% of those under 18 were born in the U.S., according to analysis of Census data by Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute.

It seems that the only thing that families value in Arizona is to rip them apart.
