    Other articles state that Arizona is not enforcing the new laws. They don't want to take the chance of having arrests overturned, so they have used laws already in place.

    I don't think the losses are correct. They only counted the conventions that canceled, and not the new ones that came to replace them. They also counted artists revenue for musical acts that were not even scheduled. Add in the economy, and know one knows the true costs.

    But if half of the 100,000 people that left were school age, they saved over 300 million.

    It's not what's in articles, it's what's left out.

    It would be great to see an article on the impact on the labor force.
    Unemployment, jobs available in the low-skilled sectors.
    And maybe crime data...and ICE activities.
    Your story above is pretty much anecdotal so the labor data could be the same.
