Forty percent of all America’s border arrests last year were handled in the area of Tucson, Arizona. It works out to about 13,000 people caught every day trying to sneak into the U.S. from Mexico. Many thousands more, cross the border undetected.
The people of Arizona have felt that they’re the ones paying the price. They complain about crowded schools, and illegal aliens taking jobs and public services. So voters said they’d had enough, and passed Proposition 200, requiring proof of citizenship to receive public benefits.
