Deny Illegals the Ability to Buy Utilities

Corp. Comm. hopeful touts lower power bills
Many illegal immigrants could have a hard time getting power, water, natural-gas or phone service at their homes in Arizona if a political candidate gets his way.

Barry Wong, a Republican candidate for the Arizona Corporation Commission, told The Arizona Republic on Tuesday that, if elected, he would require regulated utilities to check the immigration status of customers, a move he says would keep costs down for other customers.


"There is a cost ratepayers shouldn't have to bear because of the illegal-immigrant population," Wong said.
