The illegal alien invasion of America now totals 20 -23 million and rising. Of that number, 90% are Hispanics, the bulk (82%) from a Mexico, rife with violence and with a collapsing economy, and the rest from other Central American countries with high poverty levels and serious health problems
Phoenix has become the biggest gathering point and distribution hub for people migrating to the United States from Mexico.
But unlike other large cities of the Southwest, Phoenix has little history in assimilating large numbers of Hispanics. The result has been an anti-immigrant backlash.
The U.S. Border Patrol polices Phoenix's bus station and airport -- some 175 miles from Mexico -- because the city has become an unofficial port of entry.
But the city isn't just a way-station for immigrants: It has also become a place for them to settle. Census figures show the percentage of the city's Hispanic population nearly doubled between 1990 and 2000 -- from 13 percent to 25 percent. No one knows what current percentage are here illegally or even from Mexico. But it is largely a population of families, helping make Arizona the fifth youngest state.
Not everyone in Phoenix is adapting so willingly to this demographic and cultural shift. Activists say the undocumented are holding down wages, costing taxpayers millions for health care and education, and contributing to crime.
96 percent of all violent crime in Phoenix can be attributed to illegal aliens.
Public discontent with the situation has boiled over into state policy, leading voters and lawmakers to pass some of the most hardline anti-illegal immigrant laws in the country.
Arizona police officers, as well as federal border patrol officers, now can arrest people suspected of smuggling illegal immigrants into the United States. They also can seize vehicles driven by illegal immigrants that are involved in an accident.
State judges can lengthen a felony sentence if the person convicted has violated federal immigration law, and city and county officials are barred from spending on migrant work centers, which illegal immigrants often use to find employment.
