Oh Hell Yeah!!! Pull The Plug Arizona!!!!

Power Play Over Immigration Law:

LA's boycott resolution sparks a threat over power the city receives from Arizona

An Arizona utility commissioner said he's willing to pull the plug on Los Angeles if the city goes through with a boycott of his state.

In a letter to the city of LA, a member of Arizona's power commission said he would ask Arizona utility companies to cut off the power supply to Los Angeles. LA gets about 25 percent of its power from Arizona.

"That is one commissioner who has that idea whether he can do that or not is another idea," said LA Councilman Dennis Zine. "They are the ones who have to make the move, not us."

The commissioner's power grid play is in response to the city's approval of a resolution directing city staff to consider which contracts with Arizona can be terminated.

Can Arizona Pull the Plug?

Here's part Arizona Corporation Commission member Gary Pierce's letter to the mayor:

"If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation.

I am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona’s economy.

The full text was sent to the blog Hot Air.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is in Washington D.C., meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, but his deputy chief of staff issued the following statement: "The mayor stands strongly behind the city council and he will not respond to threats from the state that has isolated itself from an America that values freedom, liberty and basic civil rights."

Councilmember Tom LaBonge said he'd like to talk with Pierce. LaBonge said the city needs to look into its long standing utility agreements with Arizona.

LaBonge met Wednesday morning with LA Department of Water and Power officials.

"We have right of ownership of the power plants," LaBonge told NBCLA. "We partially own them."

Other California cities, including Oakland and San Francisco, have passed similar measures.

On Tuesday, Berkeley became the latest California city to boycott Arizona. The City Council voted unanimously to restrict staff from traveling to the state on city business.

SB 1070 -- here's the text of the law -- empowers local law enforcement to check the immigration status of suspects they have stopped for other reasons if there is a reasonable suspicion they are in the country illegally. The law specifically bars police from racial profiling.

The Arizona Republic newspaper recently asked a panel of experts to outline how the law would work in real-world situations. The experts' interpretations varied when it came to what happens at the point a law encforcement officer can or should ask about a person's status.

LADWP Backs City Council

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power general manager Austin Beutner released this statement Wednesday evening:

"I want to make clear that we support the city position regarding the recent law enacted in Arizona and the resolution adopted by the Los Angeles City Council.

"On any given day, we receive 20 to 25 percent of our power from two power plants located in Arizona: Navajo, a coal-fired plant, and Palo Verde, a nuclear plant.

"We are part owner of both power plants, which are generating assets of the department. As such, nothing in the city's resolution is inconsistent with our continuing to receive power from those department-owned assets.

"I might add that, as the city's Job Czar, I certainly would welcome any conventions or meetings that were going to be held in Arizona to come to Los Angeles. We have fantastic facilities and incomparable weather and we'd welcome them to the City of Angels."

Well hell yeah!! I am in LA right now trying to sell my parents house and I agree with Arizona for enforcing the laws on the books entirely! I would LOVE to see Arizona stand up for enforcing their law and LA should stay the hell out of Arizona's bussiness! I will put up with the sacrifice of the blackout because Los Angeles has a Mayor named Antonio Villarigosia and he is an idiot! Arizona is just enforcing their own law, and most of California agrees with it, no matter what Mayor Villarigosia say's!!!! I HAVE CANDLES :-}

well I'm not a "phobe" of any kind when you libs label people the first thing you do is come up with some "Phobe" label which means that the reason I have an opinion is because we are afraid of something or someone and I'm just not neither

It also means if we do not agree with you there must be something wrong with us !

I have a confession to make. Every time i see a Mexican flag it reminds me of Montezuma's revenge!

I just am sick and tired of ungrateful wet backs that are here just to take advantage of my country and everything it has to offer then complain about it, demand special rights, and claim alignments to Mexico!

Tha Malcontent,

For one thing I am in NO way a Lib LOL! I also do not label people with "Phobe"!

If you disagree with me that's your perogative. I dont think there is anything wrong with you, you have your point's of veiw and I have mine.

Mexican Flag's dont bother me, it's when they assume we are racist for waving AMERICAN Flags in AMERICA THAT bothers me.

I just am sick and tired of ungrateful wet backs that are here just to take advantage of my country and everything it has to offer then complain about it, demand special rights, and claim alignments to Mexico!

Now that I Agree With !!!!!

What I am saying is that enforcing the law in Arizona and California boycotting Arizona for enforcing the law and Arizona boycotting the boycotter's is legitimate.

California want's to Terminate it's contracts with AZ, which would hurt AZ's economy, so I say AZ has the right to cut the 25% of the power California buy's from AZ.

It may be all tit for tat and alot of political talk but Mayor Villiarigosa (LA) is the one who started all this mess.

AZ has the right to enforce the law in AZ. After farmers are murdered and Border Patrol Agents being shot, If I was the Governor of AZ I would enforce the law myself. People in AZ are tired of all the bloodshed and I dont blame them.

I have a daughter-in-law from Germany, she came here legally, so can everyone else!!!
