TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Tucson businesses are reacting to Arizona's new immigration enforcement law.

Some business owners fear it will put a halt to patrons coming into Tucson from out of state and from out of the country.

El Minuto Cafe owner Teresa Shaar said a group of Californians in town for a mariachi conference indicated they won't be returning next year because of Arizona's new immigration enforcement law.

Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce spokeswoman Lea Marquez Peterson said they plan to keep a watchful eye over their members during the transition adding they are not yet sure what repercussion the immigration enforcement law will have on the business community.

Peterson said they are also concerned the immigration law could lead to a loss of Mexican tourism in Arizona.
