I literally cannot wait to see some liberal idiot label this guy a white racist!
Arizona Candidate: Cut Off Power to Illegal Immigrants
Published July 05, 2010
"Ratcheting up the debate over immigration in his state, a candidate for the Arizona utilities commission is threatening to cut off power and gas to illegal immigrants if he's elected.
"It is not a right. It is a service," Barry Wong, candidate for the Arizona Corporation Commission, told The Arizona Republic.
The Republican candidate argues that the policy would be a cost-saving measure for consumers.
Though it would cost money for power companies to check immigration status, he said it would ultimately save money because power companies would not have to build new plants to serve the illegal immigrant community, presumably passing on that savings to consumers. His plan, if elected to the five-person commission, would be to require utilities to check immigration status.
"There is a cost ratepayers shouldn't have to bear because of the illegal immigrant population," he said, while acknowledging the idea would probably attract "criticism about human-rights violations."
Though Arizona has drawn praise and criticism alike from all corners of the country for its new law making illegal immigration a state crime, support was hard to come by for Wong's proposal.
None of the other candidates for the commission would endorse his idea. The CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry also blasted Wong in a column in the Republic, accusing him of trying to "score cheap political points" while marking a "new low" in the state's immigration debate.
"To deny someone access to electricity based on his or her immigration status is not only a wrongheaded policy proposal, it's just cruel," Glenn Hamer wrote, calling the candidate's economic argument "absurd."
Wong, who was born in the United States, is the son of Chinese immigrants. He previously served in the Arizona House of Representatives.
It's not the first time the issue of Arizona's power supply has come up in the immigration debate.
After the Los Angeles government decided to boycott Arizona in May over its law, Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce wrote a letter to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa threatening to cut off power to the city. Los Angeles and Arizona officials later acknowledged that the state could not unilaterally sever those power contracts."
It is long past time that those American Hispanics who supported the Arizona law are heard from! That law passed with 70% of a vote of the people of Arizona and that could not have happened without Hispanics voting for it! Where are their voices today? Why are no reporters talking to them? These are the people whose neighborhoods are inundated with undocumented workers, gang members and criminal aliens and their voices have been silenced in the media!
The Victoria Advocate did a story on a local march against the Arizona law organized by LULAC. The Advocate did not, however, choose to interview an Hispanic caller on it's "speak out" line that supported the law! Nor did they solicit Hispanics that support the law to speak up on the record! Instead the local paper decided to racially profile me and delete my very even-handed blog post concerning that march four times! And then banned me from the blog forum for insisting the truth be told! Yellow journalism at it's very best...or worst, whichever the case may be!
A wise old vaquero said one time, "Lo que tu mas odias, en tu casa lo has tienes de vere!" Whatever you hate the most will come and live in your house with you! Ah the wisdom of a man who spent his time on the back of a horse nursing the rich folk's cows! Lot's of time to think! Lot's of time to contemplate!
The people of the United States, generally speaking, hate corruption. Hate crime! Hate cronyism and what the Mexicans call patron democracy! And yet because we refuse to properly patrol and control our own borders all of the things we hate are coming to live in our house with us!
Because we have refused to raise children to admire hard work, sweat, working at a trade or craft, building something-building America with a feeling of accomplishment, we now have to import workers!
And I'm sad to say, better workers! Mexican workers, generally speaking, are better workers than the last two generations of children WE'VE raised! They listen intently! They work harder and follow instructions! They make an effort to learn English!* They show up for work on time, every day! They are more loyal and move from point A to point B like they have a purpose! And most importantly they can pass a piss test!
Yes, sadly, most of these traits do not describe much of the two generations of children we've raised!
Now I defy anyone to find any small bit of racial prejudice in this post! If you do, you have just racially profiled me! To those who say there is racism in what I've posted here, I say: mienterosso! Halto tu mentidas! Ahora!
Escucha cerquita! Yo te amo el lenguaje Espanol y yo te amo mi suegra Latina! Y yo te amo mi familia Mexicano/Americanos y mi familia in Mexico! Y mi hermanos y hermanas en Christo! Mi carnal! Mi sangre! Mi corazon!
Now allow me to pose a juxtopposed question: what happens if we do what some(a small number) of the indeed prejudiced Americans want and round up all of the illegals in this country, ship them back across the border and shut the border down? I can tell you! Revolution! That number of unemployed, working age people suddenly thrust into the graft, corruption and criminal element that is Mexico today would certainly mean revolution and a blood bath of epic proportions that would certainly spill back across the border!
This would also most certainly mean a near shutdown of American industrial construction simply for the reasons mentioned above! Ooooooh, you mean Americans on the welfare rolls for three generations would actually have to go out and...and...eeek, I can hardly utter the words...WORK?
Now! Someone sit back and say any of this violates the user policy of my local paper!
*Notice please, I said that the vast majority of illegal workers make an effort to learn and speak English. I know this to be true because I've worked WITH them and even FOR them! LULAC, MALDEF and La Raza consider any attempt to stop bi-lingual education an act of prejudice and bigotry even though "emmersion" in English has been proven time and again to be the better method. Indeed I am one of those emmersion students. I had to be because I worked in a crew where Spanish was spoken almost exclusively. I HAD to learn. However, when first formed, LULAC promoted a program called the "500 words" urging immigrants to learn these words in order to help them better assimilate into American society. That program is no longer promoted because those organizations want new immigrants dependent on them! It's called "constituency building!"
Do ya get it yet?
