“Attrition through enforcement”…SB 1070 attempts to make Arizona the “bouncer” of illegal aliensby Hugh Holub on Aug. 04, 2010, under border issues, mexico, politics, SB 1070
The stated intent of SB 1070 is “to make attrition through enforcement the public policy of all state and local government agencies in Arizona”.
In other words, to make life so miserable for illegal immigrants they will pack up a leave the state.
Lawrence Downs, a columnist for the New York Times observed “ ‘Attrition through enforcement’ is a theory cooked up in right-wing think tanks — that mass deportation is unnecessary, because with enough hostile laws and harsh enforcement, illegal immigrants will all decide to go home.”
Or maybe to Colorado.
