Arizona GOP candidate calls for cutting off illegal immigrants’ utilities

• Stephen C. Webster via the raw story

Arizona's campaign against Mexican immigrants seems to intensify with every passing week. This latest round of escalation, however, has even some proponents of getting tough on illegal immigrants wondering if it's just gone a bit too far.

The state has been at the very epicenter of America's immigration debate ever since the passage of Senate Bill 1070, which allows police the right to detain anyone suspected of being undocumented. In spite of the rapid, loud backlash against the move, from all appearances the laws have only sparked greater emphasis on -- and increased hatred of -- immigrants in public life.

Enter former Republican State Representative Barry Wong, who hopes to win a job atop the Arizona Corporation Commission, which oversees the state's utilities.

Alas, is not like these people have no where else to go.

Like back to where they came from.  They know where to go when

they have committed a major crime; run back to Mexico where they

are protected.  No mercy!!
