Arizona was once tolerant of illegal immigrants. What happened?

LATimes analysis. Good article that can be summed up thusly:

At the same time, the Republican Party in Arizona has moved to the right on all sorts of issues. Susan Gerard, a former GOP state senator who also worked for former Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano, was one of more than a dozen Republican moderates in the Legislature at the start of the decade. Now, she said, there are none.

"The Republican Party in Arizona, and really throughout the country, has taken giant leaps to the right," Gerard said.

Kinda funny, well, peculiar that "right" means "wrong", ain't it?
