Readers' forum: Deportation of families

Published: Saturday, June 18 2011 12:00 a.m. MDT

I'm sure I'm not the only one to believe there is something suspect in the deportation of several Utah families who were well educated, paying their own way, contributing to society and, to my knowledge, had not been criminally cited. It is my understanding that until the immigration issue is resolved that no one need fear deportation unless he/she had committed a crime.

I hope there is someone out there investigating why several prominent LDS Church families have been hand-picked for deportation while so many others, with less favorable credentials are left alone. I don't favor illegal immigration, but I do expect fair treatment for all.
