    MEXICO CITY -- A new study suggests there may be 100,000 fewer Hispanics in Arizona than there were before the debate over the state's tough new immigration law earlier this year.

    BBVA Bancomer Research, which did the study, worked with figures from the U.S. Current Population Survey. The study says the decline could be due to the law known as SB1070, which partly entered into effect in July, or to Arizona's difficult economic situation.

    The study released Wednesday also cites Mexican government figures as saying that 23,380 Mexicans returned from Arizona to Mexico between June and September.

    U.S. census figures from 2008 say about 30 percent of people living in Arizona are Hispanic, or about 1.9 million.

    The state is appealing a ruling that put on hold parts of the law, which would have allowed police to question the immigration status of those they suspect are in the country illegally.

    Buried in Debt Immigrants are heavily employed in Arizona's construction industry, which has suffered -- along with the rest of the state's economy -- in the economic downturn.

    Probably had more to do with the terrible economy and housing market in Arizona.

    Really!?! My job has me going out to the South side of Okc constantly and it still looks like a ghost town since we passed HB1804 back in 07... Honestly, as long as they're legal more power to them! We have plenty of room here to grow!
