    So they end up tweaking the law here and there. Is that a problem?

    It's not a tuff law when the "strictest" parts are being repealed.

    And wow, big biz does not like the law? lol

    Many of the illegals left, a lot of legal green card holders left too. The chicken plants are crying the blues and I personally know of one peach crop that only got about 1/4 picked for lack of workers. To a state that counts on cheap migrant labor this was deliberate self sabotage.

    This is what happen when hate, ignorance, and blind adherence to rightist dogma guides the legislative process.
