NumbersUSA had said that defeating Proposition 202 was the most important vote of these elections. The ballot measure was pushed by Arizona businesses that wanted to make it easier to hire illegal aliens and to gut a new Arizona law that may be the toughest in the nation in keeping illegal aliens out of jobs. Prop. 202 was deceptively named the "Stop Illegal Hiring Act" even though it would have done the exact opposite. NumbersUSA thanks all of you who sent money to pay for ads to inform voters of the deception just before Tuesday.
Fortunately, one of the nation's premier state laws will continue to prove that illegal immigration is not inevitable and that it is indeed possible to cause illegal aliens to go back home if you dry up the jobs. View the Special Election tracker
