- Phoenix has been called the "number two kidnapping capital of the world", with a lot of kidnappings (many of which are said in the linked article to go unreported) related to the illegal drug trade. Per the same article, "[s]ome officials have commented that all the Phoenix kidnappings are connected to illegal immigration".
- A Pinal County sheriff's deputy was shot in the abdomen when he came upon a group of suspected human traffickers, who opened fire on him. A manhunt for those responsible resulted in the arrest of 17 suspected illegal immigrants.
- Multiple areas in Arizona are littered with literally thousands of discarded backpacks left by undocumented immigrants entering the state.
- Arizona residents, by a wide margin, support SB 1070, the controversial immigration law opposed by the Austin City Council.
So, with all that said, one question remains:
Do you think the people of Arizona care one whit about what the City of Austin thinks of them?
