    I agree. If you feed the hungry birds, you end up with more hungry birds. It you don't put out food for them, they'll go elsewhere. Basic fact of life.

    Except these birds have potential voting in the future (or currently if there is an ACORN office nearby).
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Thats precisely their objective...."Taking back, Kali, Arizona, N Mexico and Texas without firing 1 shot". Nationwide, Latino voter registration grew 54% and Latino voter turnout grew 64% between 2000 and 2008.

    They will eventually shape congressional apportionment

    You have a point.
    They should be deported rather than silly things like power.
    Of course this situation arises becaue our Federal govt is NOT doing their job and states don't have the power.
    But that would be a better solution and a great photo op..... Arizona loading busses with illegals and deporting them.
    Embarrassing the feds into the job.

    Other then they would have paid for them,
    Doubt it. If illegals weren't draining the country through welfare and free social services, this wouldn't be a fraction of the problem it is.

    Agree
    As I've said many times, the solution is to sanction anyone who hires an illegal.
    No money. No stay.
    A law with a $5000 fine for first offense and JAIL time and higher fine for second offense.
    Starting say... with a raid on LA's 50 biggest restaurants one night.. and on down the line. (and across the nation)
    The problem would be 90% solved in ONE week.

    If California can boycott fellow Americans over illegal immigration, Arizonans can boycott illegal immigrants that may move to California for electricity.

    Re: Arizona Candidate: Cut Off Power to Illegal Immigrants

    OP:
    Now this I don't agree with - even prisoner's in jail get electricity

    And last I looked being a US citizen wasn't a requirement for me to get on the grid and in the power company's fattening pocket.

    It's a service -a utility - you pay for what you use . . . and if you don't pay THEN you get it cut off.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Re: Arizona Candidate: Cut Off Power to Illegal Immigrants

    If they know where illegals live, they should go over there and jail them/deport them. Why cut off electricity instead of enforcing the law? What they should do is cut electricity to businesses that hire illegals, that might do more good.
