Welcome to Arizona, Desert Outpost of Contradictions  


John Moore/Getty Images: Demonstrators protested Arizona’s tough new immigration law in Phoenix last week.


In the spotlight for its new immigration law, and seen by many as a cartoon of intolerance, Arizona in reality is much more complex.

Mexico issues travel warning over Arizona immigration law

Mexico City  

Americans are accustomed to State Department advisories cautioning them to steer clear of dicey protests and political turmoil in developing countries, including their neighbor to the south. 

Since drug violence erupted in Mexico, the US has warned its citizens of “large fire fights” in towns across Mexico, particularly along the US-Mexico border. 

Mexico always grumbles about US travel alerts. But today Mexico got payback. 

Minuteman Project volunteer 'Randy' of Las Vegas, patrols the US-Mexican border on April 4, 2005, along a border road near Naco, Ariz. Members of the Minuteman Project say their mission is to stop the flow of illegal immigration, a job they say federal authorities are failing to do. Arizona is the most porous state along the United States' border with Mexico.

In big red letters on its “travel guide” on the exterior ministry website is a travel alert for “all Mexicans visiting, living, or studying in the state of Arizona.”

A senior U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) attorney was found guilty or corruption Tuesday for taking bribes from immigrants who wanted to stay in the country legally.

Peter Kallas, an assistant chief counsel at the agency, was convicted of "conspiracy, six counts of bribery, two counts of obstruction of justice, seven counts of fraud and misuse of entry documents, three counts of aggravated identity theft, nine counts of making false statements to the Department of Labor, four counts of making false statements to obtain federal employee compensation, and four counts of tax evasion," according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles.

Arizona's immigration law

Hysterical nativism

A conservative border state is at risk of becoming a police state
Apr 22nd 2010 | LOS ANGELES
RUSSELL PEARCE is the quintessential Arizona Republican. He wears stars-and-stripes shirts and has clips of John Wayne and Ronald Reagan on his website. He loves guns, his family, his Mormon faith, his country and the law, which he enforced for many years as deputy sheriff of Maricopa County. He jokes that being Republican, and thus not having a heart, saved his life when he got shot in the chest once. But his main passion is illegal immigrants, whom he calls “invaders”. He loathed them even before his son Sean, also a sheriff’s deputy, got shot by one. But now it is personal.
Mr Pearce, a state senator, has sponsored an Arizona law that, if enacted, would be the toughest in the country. It is so brazen it has caused outrage. This week it passed the last hurdles in the state legislature. As The Economist went to press, it was awaiting the signature of Arizona’s Republican governor, Jan Brewer.

When the niños run out

A falling birth rate, and what it means

Apr 22nd 2010 | MEXICO CITY
FENCES, soldiers, infra-red cameras: the United States goes to great lengths to hold back the teeming masses across its southern border (see article). But the masses are teeming less. Mexico’s birth rate, once among the world’s highest, is in free-fall. In the 1960s Mexican mothers had nearly seven children each (whereas women in India then had fewer than six). The average now is just over two—almost the same as in the United States. The UN reckons that from 2040 the birth rate in Mexico will be the lower of the two.
The fall follows a government u-turn nearly 40 years ago, when a contraception campaign replaced the previous nation-building policy. Today, four out of ten married Mexican women are sterilised, a radical measure that partly reflects the continuing lack of other contraception in some areas as well as strict laws against abortion everywhere but the capital. Broader changes, such as more women in education and work, and pricier housing, have pushed down the size of families even more. (Brazil, where the government has promoted contraception less forcefully, has experienced a similar baby bust.)

Even the unborn in their mothers' wombs. The "Coaltion" mass murders, at checkpoints, in vehicles, schools, homes, markets, communities, continue unabated. US Defence Secretary Robert Gates, recently stated that General Stanley McChrystal believes that continued "casualties" (translation: dead) at the hands of US and NATO troops imperil the entire war effort in the country. You couldn't fault Gates and McChrystal for critical perception (clarity that took nearly nine years to figure.)

DEA Cites Homeland Security Today in Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing  

MARCH 17, 2009—Testifying at a combined hearing of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs and the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control, Anthony Placido, intelligence chief for the Drug Enforcement Administration, holds up the February issue of Homeland Security Today magazine that contains the second part of a three-part investigative series on the brutal violence in Mexico. Homeland Security Today correspondents (writing from Mexico and the US border) and Brian Michael Jenkins have presented a comprehensive look at the struggle and how it affects the US. Mr. Placido reflected this in his testimony when he says the violence "has caused some, including Homeland Security [Today] magazine, to speculate about the likelihood of Mexico failing in its efforts. And, for our purposes, and by extension, created a discussion about whether the violence would spill over our southwest border at increased levels and with adverse consequences to US interests."
