Oh believe me, I see it here in AZ on a day to day grassroots level. There are laws on the books, but little enforcement, and even less punishment. Our famous sheriff, Joe Arpaio, created quite a controversy here when he started enforcing a new law designed to curb illegal immigration in a way other than it was intended -- he actually began charging the illegals themselves with crimes (gasp!). If drug laws were similarly enforced, police would put out joints with squirt guns, then take you home to mommy and daddy for some ice cream and cookies.
They also enforce laws against hiring here, but put very little effort into finding the perps, who risk little more than losing a business license if caught multiple times.
