Boycott Fail: Arizona’s Hotels Thriving

By Duane Lester, All American Blogger: The left all across the country felt they needed to teach those xenophobes in Arizona a lesson, so they all got together and organized a boycott of the whole state. It’s one of the most massive, cross country fails in political history:
Recent data compiled by a market research group show hotel bookings across the state — as well as in tourism hot spots Phoenix and Scottsdale — have been on the rise the past two months.
The numbers could dispel warnings from local officials that Arizona stands to lose a fortune and dampen the chances that cities and organizations will be able to compel the state to reverse its immigration law by choking its economy with a sanctions-style business boycott.
“Fundamentally, the boycotts have been unsuccessful,” said Barry Broome, president of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.
In other news, the law isn’t even being enforced and the mass self-deportation is already underway:
The new law does not actually go into effect until July 29, but it has already resulted in a massive number of illegal aliens leaving the state.
One example can be found in Arizona’s public schools, which are over-burdened with the children of illegal aliens. Since April, schools have been reporting a large drop in enrollments. By late May, the Balsz Elementary School District which is 75 percent Hispanic, saw the parents of 70 students pull them out of school.
School District Superintendent Jeffrey Smith told USAToday that parents have been telling him, the new law is reason for them leaving.
Reuters recently ran a story on the explosion in yard sales throughout Arizona, as illegal aliens try to lighten their load before leaving the state.
Mexican national, Wendi Villasenor told the Reuters reporter: “Everyone is selling up the little they have and leaving. We have no alternative. They have us cornered.”
Gov. Brewer’s spokesman, Paul Senseman, recently stated that while the state has no official numbers on just how many illegal aliens have left, he has heard many similar reports.
Senseman said: “If that means that fewer people are breaking the law, that is absolutely an accomplishment.”
So, hotel bookings are on the rise, illegals are leaving the state and the law has yet to be applied.
Sounds like Arizona really hurt themselves with this one.
