Will Arizona be dangerous in the future?

I lived in Arizona as child and I now live in the midwest. I really miss it there, and I want to move to AZ permanently. I really like the northern suburbs of Phoenix…because they are currently safe and quite family-friendly. But I'm hearing that they won't always be that way? That the entire Phoenix metro area is going to be flooded with gun crime and out-of-control immigration?? Could someone please help clarify these claims?? Will the northern Phoenix suburbs still be safe 20 years from now?

Now that Obama has sent the illegals an invitation to AZ (“we will only detain or deport you if you have committed some other crime”) the flood should at least continue, if not get worse.

Scientists predict that in a year Arizona will be a nuclear waste land filled with horse feces and dead aliens

You mean when it becomes Arizona Bay?

Si Si, mas illegals, mas guns, mas drugs, mas crime, viva la raza, we are coming for you.

Arizona is a border state, thus it’s never been “that’ safe. But the enormous illegal alien problem has been getting worse and worse year after year and unfortunately, with the federal gov. not helping AZ with it’s problem, and tying their hands when it comes to them dealing with these invaders, it’s not looking too good for Arizona’s future.

on the web, immigrants are leaving arizona, if arizona is unsafe it is from the americans loosing there minds because the economies in both arizona and alabama are failing because they do not have the workers who did important eco jobs to keep the economy going….look up arizona’s new law on either bing, or google, or go to ask.com and ask “How has arizon’s new immigration law effected the economy? please don’t always believe what your hear make sure your source has credit and look it up…again make sure any source you read is worth believing…. FYI you younger people who are in high school, when you get to college all of what you say has to be credited by a creditable source or it won’t have ethos and your grade will be crap…..in the 2050 hispanics will be the biggest minority in the U.S.A says statistics in the understanding business book published by Mc-Graw hill irwin…..if illgals is what makes the u.s dangerous, then forks make people fat, and gun companies kill people…. :) 8 out of every 10 immigrants or hispanic portion of the immigrants just want to be here to support their families…..it the people who are legal here who take advantage of unemployment, welfare, social security etc….no illegal immigrant can get social security or anything like that cause duh they are illegal…..the crime rate has always been high in the u.s before anyone came here illegally>rolling my eyes< look it up and get educated. YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD MAKE IT REALLY SAFE?? FOR ANYONE WHO IS NOT NATIVE AMERICAN TO GO BACK TO THERE OWN COUNTRIES WHERE THERE FAMILIES FIRST MIGRATED FROM THEM SELVES!!! :) am i right?? oh yeah i am… 75% native american right here buddy i will being staying?? anyone else or would you be deported?? please don't let the spanish last name fool you i am all american, just a more educated one than most. i look up all my information so i don't sounds ignorant or raciest!! some of you should deff try it. i have learned and understand the damage deporting all the immigrates will do to our economy, and i want the u.s to survive!!

Will Arizona be dangerous to who?

It is already said that the Phoenix metro area is already flooded with “out-of-control immigration”. The state of Arizona has been in the news accusing the Federal Government for not doings it’s job and for creating it’s own laws in which to control immigration.
It seems to me that between the actions and statements of Sheriff Arpaio the elected Sheriff of Maricopa County and the state’s governor Ms. Brewer, “out-of-control immigration” is already a dire problem and will continue to be so. (in part)

“Sheriff Arpaio: I’m going to enforce our state laws”

…..”ARPAIO: Of course it is. I’m the poster boy. He mentioned me a few months ago at the White House. He didn’t like what I was doing with the 1070.
But if he has that much concern, then stop them from coming into the United States because it’s illegal to come into this country. So he ought to do something about that situation. On the other hand, we should enforce the laws in the interior, which most people are saying, including politicians, let’s — let’s secure the borders, and then they say first.
Well, what about all the illegals that are in the interior? We’re locking them up on human smuggling and raiding businesses, crime suppression’s. And, by the way, I’m not stopping anything. I’m going to continue to enforce those state laws, regardless of what the federal government is trying to put pressure on me to satisfy all these activists, which, by the way, are in front of my building right now. Three-and-a-half years, they’ve been in front of my building.
So, I’m not going to bend to the federal government, especially when we still have state laws to enforce.”…..

“Gov. Brewer: Arizona Immigration Ruling ‘Victory For The Rule Of Law’”

…..”Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said the ruling marked a victory for people who believe in the responsibility of states to defend their residents.
“Today’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court is a victory for the rule of law. It is also a victory for the 10th Amendment and all Americans who believe in the inherent right and responsibility of states to defend their citizens,” Gov. Brewer said in a statement. “After more than two years of legal challenges, the heart of SB 1070 can now be implemented in accordance with the U.S. Constitution.””…..

As for the gun crimes that occur it needs to be decided who is creating the gun crime problem.

“Second violent crime linked to ATF gunwalking”

“A second violent crime in Arizona has been linked to weapons from ATF’s “gunwalking” operation: Fast and Furious. The first known crime was the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Arizona state police revealed yesterday that two guns from Fast and Furious were found in an arrest involving two Mexican men who assaulted detectives outside Phoenix in 2010. Nobody was seriously hurt.
Fast and furious is the operation in which ATF allowed thousands of weapons to “walk” into the hands of suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels.
It’s unclear why the year-old case and its link to Fast and Furious were revealed now, with the apparent blessing of ATF headquarters.”…..

In terms of crime statistics for cities or states with high crime rates, Lookit ma face,dood. was unsure how accurate his provided link was but the information given appears to be from 2002.
Here are a few links with more current statistics.

Maryland is number 10 and Louisiana number 1, the state of Arizona is ranked at 37 of the Continental 50 states on The Institute For Economics And Peace list.

“NATIONWIDE MURDER RATES, 1996 – 2010″
http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/murder-rates-nationally-and-state

In the above link Arizona in 2010 has a 6.4 murder rate per 100,000 people yet Louisiana’s rate is almost doubled at 11.2, so which city do you think is safer? I would not base my safety on these numbers as much as my reactions to those around me in public, who I associate with and my immediate surroundings. So far that has got me through a good half a century of living and working along strangers, family and crazies.
