    I don't live in Tucson, but I have visited several times. From what I have seen Tucson has large pockets of poverty. Its infrastructure is severely neglected. It does not have a really broad range employment base. Add the fact it is a low paying rising housing cost area. Then I would say Tucson should be, in the forefront of taking care of its own first. Its hospitals ERs are filled with people from. Across the boarder. That is a clear sign something is wrong at taxpayers expense. You take care of your own first, and then help others. Tucson like most of the US, severely lacks in looking after its own. Expecting taxpayers to foot the bill, from shelter. housing, no car insurance, no licensr for all these poor immigrants, illegals. Give me a Break. Its a racket. Sorry Tuscon you need to take a long look at how many native to your area live in dire straights. Before declaring Sanctuary Status.
