They may talk a good game of Conservatism, but when the time comes for pushing their agenda, they turn into Liberals on steroids.
    How, exactly, is forbidding businesses from violating federal law by doing business with illegal immigrants against conservativism? This should be interesting.

    Actually I do not know how they can actually do this.

    Just remember folks, once you get all the illegals out, you going to need someone to do the jobs they did.
    Going to have a great big laugh over all this insanity, because Americans will refuse to do the work presently done by ILLEGALS.
    So guess what they will have to do is invite some guest workers into the country to do the work. ROFLMBO

    Easy fix for that. Just take the banksters who have plundered this country, put leaf blowers in their hands, and make them do some real work, for a change.

    Re: Arizona Candidate: Cut Off Power to Illegal Immigrants

    I can see why the candidate is pushing that. Obviously in AZ you can win any election, no matter how incompetant you are, by promising to attack hispanics or illegal immigrants... But, trying to force utility companies to act as immigration enforcement officials is just ridiculous... And I very much doubt the utilities commission even has the legal authority to do something like that anyways... Which, presumably, this bloke knows. So it's just political theater...

    There are plenty of Americans hungry enough to work honestly to survive. It's the business owners that take advantage of the illegal work force that should be jailed and forced to pay major fines.

    It is.

    Pedro and Maria are not going to sneak into this country to fill manufacturing, engineering or management roles. Seriously, they might manage to land jobs at a food service joint or janitorial staff at a plant or facility, but they aren't displacing anyone in the trades or people who had to go to college to get their job....So, lets cut to the chase

    A lot of headway would be made in the illegal situation if, the Feds just turned off social services for illegals and were serious about going after companies who are unlawfully employing them. You take away the ability to make a living illegally and you solve most of the problem.

    Prevent them from coming in and the problem goes away.

    Guy must be a nut job. Really. The power company can barely shut off power if one doesn't pay their bill -- much less if one isn't legal in the U.S. Ridiculous. Electricity is a necessary service. Who are THEY to shut it off without due process.

    That's impossible. We don't have enough money to pay people to do that or use technology.
