    Poll: Lights on or lights off?

    Should power companies kill power to illegals in this country?

    Is there a way to tell from the way they use electricity?

    Do they cook meals while real American's eat out?

    Do they not run the AC when it is hot to save money? While real Americans complain their AC system won't cool to 65 while it is 95 outside.

    If they are truly illegals, then there should be no need to turn off their electricity, as they should be arrested and deported.

    Power companies are in business like we are... and as long as the CUSTOMER (not a hand out) pays the bill on time... well they can have juice.

    Personally, I am AGAINST ALL handout programs associated with any government agency, no exceptions. It is like buying votes, something that breeds corruption that will destroy a country.

    What we need is less government and more self-reliance. And those that do not save $$$ for a rainy day... well they will get wet.

    Candidate Wants Utilities Shut Off for Illegal Immigrants

    PHOENIX - There have been a lot of ideas as to what to do with illegal immigrants, but one candidate's idea could put him in the dark.

    Barry Wong, a Republican candidate running for the state's Corporation Commission, says that people living illegally in Arizona should have their power cut off.

    The Corporation Commission is the panel that sets utility rates.

    Wong wants state-regulated utilities to check the immigraton status of customers.

    "If there's more and more of the illegal immigrants, the system may not be able to absorb or provide the power to everybody," says Wong.

    He believes the additional demand for service by illegal aliens drives up the cost for all rate payers. He says if his policy is implemented, legal customers would save money on electricity.

    Arizona Public Service says it's not sure how that policy would be implemented. Wong says he's not trying to turn power company employees into immigration agents, and he's not trying to get people arrested, he just wants their power cut off.

    Critics say Wong's plan is dangerous and even inhumane, given the intensity of the Arizona summers.

    If Wong is elected to the 5-member Corporation Commission, it will still take a majority vote for his idea to become reality.

    IMveryHO, this Wong guy is WRONG... and I think he is riding public sentiment to gain political power.

    The market forces of supply and demand will resolve lots of issues if we can just keep the meddling government OUT of it.

    As far as inhuman temps... remember where these Hispanic folks come from... it is hotter down south than in the USA.
