Arizona Corporation Commission candidate wants to cut power to undocumented immigrants
Barry Wong REALLY wants to win the GOP primary.
"I'm sure there will be criticism about human-rights violations," Wong said of his utility proposal. "Is power or natural gas or any type of utility we regulate, is that a right that people have? It is not a right. It is a service."
The other two Republicans in the race and all three Democrats said that asking utilities to check customers' immigration status is inappropriate.
14. That is really sad. Barry was a very nice guy and I really don't think he believes this.
It just shows how the GOP are running with this. The front runner for Gov in Florida is using Immigration as well and saing he will insitutute Floridas own SB1070.And he looks like he will win the general.This is horrifying. People are appealing to the lowest common demomitor and calling it patriotisim when it is just bigotry. Barry Wong certainly isn't a white guy. I wonder if his electric company should ask for proof of his citizenship if he moves and needs to be reconnected?
17. Even if a person is here illegally cutting power
might cause the death of someone using a machine to keep them alive. And besides if they know the person is illegal, how come they are arrested and deported. And if they can find them why are they ranting and raving and stopping people and now wanting to cut off power. Suppose they cut off power to someone here legally just because they are Spanish. I'd sue the ba***rds.
