As we approach the year anniversary of the signing of the Utah Compact, I am writing to voice my support for its compassionate approach as the only fair and reasonable way of meeting the challenge of illegal immigration. It is a thoughtful alternative to the extremist attitude that all undocumented immigrants in Utah must somehow be punished, that only a pound of flesh will compensate for their supposed impudence in seeking residence among us.
Considering the undeniably substantial sacrifice and contribution of immigrants both legal and illegal in our country, I find this attitude small-minded, vindictive and in no one's interest. Scapegoating and senseless retribution are always wrong.
