Arizona Apartheid Success!

Well? A success if you are looking at it from under your white sheet, I suppose? The numbers don't lie:

Hispanics flee Arizona ahead of immigration law

Arizona's tough new immigration enforcement law is fueling an exodus of Hispanics from the state seven weeks before it goes into effect, according to officials and residents in the state.

Though no one has precise figures, reports from school officials, businesses and individuals indicate worried Hispanics — both legal and illegal — are leaving the state in anticipation of the law, which will go into effect July 29.

Schools in Hispanic areas report unusual drops in enrollment. The Balsz Elementary School District is 75% Hispanic, and within a month of the law's passage, the parents of 70 students pulled them out of school, said District Superintendent Jeffrey Smith. The district lost seven students over the same one-month period last year, and parents tell Smith the Arizona law is the reason for leaving.

"They're leaving to another state where they feel more welcome," he said.

Since intimidating legal immigrants and long time citizens that just happen to look exactly like "illegal immigrants" was always the real goal and intent of this legislation... I believe that it must be considered a complete success by the worst of the worst this nation has allowed to fester in politics as the bigots in Arizona will have a better chance of seeing their little part of the country stay under the control of the white right kind of GOP people.

Just to be clear:

The crime of apartheid is defined by the 2002 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court as inhumane acts of a character similar to other crimes against humanity "committed in the context of an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination by one racial group over any other racial group or groups and committed with the intention of maintaining that regime."
