Good to hear that news.
Apple Inc. (AAPL) said it’s opening a new plant in Mesa, Arizona, that will create 2,000 jobs to make components for its products, part of a push by the world’s most valuable company to boost manufacturing in the U.S. Apple Opening Arizona Plant With 2,000 Workers [bloomberg.com]

Oh, now that's interesting. I'd have expected something about 100 miles further south with a side order of "No worries, INS, we'll take responsibility for fence maintenance alongside the plant". This is a generic observation, in no way specific to Apple.
