DU: No water or power for illegal immigrants - Decaturdaily.com
Decatur Utilities now prohibits illegal immigrants from obtaining electric, gas, water or sewer service, an official said Friday.
Stephen Pirkle, DU business manager and chief financial officer, said DU previously required residents seeking utilities to provide identification, but their immigration status was not relevant.
“We did not document or confirm whether or not they were citizens or aliens here legally,” Pirkle said. “Because of the new law, we are now going through the process to confirm that they are either a citizen or an alien here legally.
“If not, we will deny them service.”
Same in Huntsville
Huntsville Utilities also has instituted a policy of denying service to illegal immigrants, said Bill Yell, its communications director.
There's no room for anyone that would break the laws of this country.
