Arizona immigration law: painful lessons from Oklahoma
Arizona may soon regret its new immigration law. Oklahoma passed a similar law in 2007 that deeply hurt its people and economy.
In late 2007, Oklahoma legislators enacted what was then the nation’s toughest anti-immigrant law. Mere months later, state Sen. Harry Coates – the only Republican legislator to vote against the measure – said, “You really have to work hard at it to destroy our state’s economy, but we found a way. We ran off the workforce.”

Op, I don't agree with the OPINION Editorial Piece you posted... Oklahoma's last recorded Unemployment rate is 6.6%... They are doing BETTER than most of the states in my region. Ohio 11%+, Indiana 10%+, Michigan 14%+, etc..... Heck, Oklahoma is BELOW the National Unemployment rate of 10.2%.... So, I think there is argument there that Oklahoma's economy is fairing pretty well in this recession respectively...

I won't consider an opinion piece as proof of anything.
