Arizona Businesses Feeling Impact of Immigrants Leaving State

The Arizona business economy that was already suffering the same economic woes as another parts of the country is now suffering additional losses as immigrants leave the state due to its SB 1070 immigration law.  From less renters in Surprise, Arizona to lower sales at the Phoenix Dollar Store to the local Food City closing, evidence is aplenty.

Whereas supporters of Arizona’s SB1070 feel the legislation will save taxpayers from not having to cover the cost of education or social services for its undocumented population.  However, the overall economic effect of immigrants illegal and legal leaving the state is not clear since Latinos represented the fastest growing population in the state and were one out of every three people living in Arizona with a purchasing power of $31Billion.
