Van, in Saratoga, your logic is so off I hardly know where to start. I wish
people would look at the media as a platform to sell their stories instead of a
factual opinion. Where in the world did you come up with the ideas that 'The
Majority of the great state of Utah" and "They will be nobodys. They
will be an embarrassment to the great state of Utah." Your liberalism is
showing as a badly fitting slip. If you really want to understand illegal
immigration, as those immigrants who are here ligally how they feel about the
A good sidebar to this article would be the workplace raid of a farm in Georgia,
that removed 18 men here illegally under SOAR (sex offender removal). Also that 7 congressmen from Georgia have demanded a meeting with the head of
ICE to find out why removal of people there illegally was so slow. And Georgia's lawmakers are planning on passing a law similar to Arizona's.
The compact is not spreading, it's being used to fight enforcement.
A lot of people thought the Utah compact is a good idea, until they find out
they are talking amnesty for illegal immigrants between the lines. It talks to
vague about immigration, and never addresses the problem of legal vs illegal.
It's a public relations peace meant to sway opinion, but has no real effect. I dislike the word undocumented immigrant. Since those that come here
legally come for citizenship. and those who come illegally come for jobs. If
amnesty is given to someone here for the job, they need not worry about the
political wind and enforcement. They are more of a
"undocumented visa worker", someone who comes for a specific amount of
time, or until the work is done, then returns home. There are no jobs for
non-agricultural workers in this state, that cannot be taken by Americans. The
undocumented visa is up, it's time to go home.
The Utah Compact is gaining popularity by the minute.The Sandstroms bill
is loosling popularity buy the minute.The Majority of the great
state of Utah is sending a message that ideas like the Utah Compact is the
higher ground to take. It is catching on all around the country.Leaders should realize that the opposition to any immigration reform is much
smaller than it seems. They are loud, they are angry, and they are not capable
of seeing any other ideas other than mass deportation. Their talking points are
getting old. However, they are the ones that call and bark.The
leaders that support ideas like the Utah Compact will soon be heros of Utah.
Sensable good people that can can use reason, practicality and compassion to
solve the immigration problem.Leaders that support deportation and
enforcement only will be seen as right wing extremist that solved nothing. They
will be nobodys. They will be and embarrassments to the great state of Utah.
Immigrants are a net benefit to society. Let's close the borders and work
pragmatically to integrate those here now. It's the wise thing to do. Kudos to the Utah Compact and its thousands of supporters. It should
sweep the nation as a logical and pragmatic approach. Good luck Georgia.
So I'm curious. If I am speeding on I-15 and get pulled over for breaking the
law should I just suggest that the officer let me off because he should be
commpassionate and reasonable and since I am on a federal highway I should not
be bothered by the state trooper, the county sheriff or the town officer because
they have to much to do already after all it's not their jurisdiction? I've
been speeding for years and have not be caught. So that should make it alright
also. Sorry, I'm ranting again but really, what's the difference?
All this means is that in Georgia, just like in Utah, there are those that
depend on cheap labor and/or votes. It also shows Georgia has a bunch of
Immigration Lawyers ready to fill out the Illegal Alien's Paperwork...for a
fee.Nothing new here.
So some in Georgia think its a good idea to offer "warm fuzzies" to
the illegal alien trespassers, while their own citizens are facing mass
How is illegal immigration going to help the economy. These people get
government services that legal citizens of the US can't receive and it's a drain
on every states resources. These studies are bias by people who have an agenda.
The LDS Church even wants to keep them for conversion for the new tithe that
will come into the coffers. Wake up people and think, who is going to benefit
the most here.
There are so many issues that confront us today where Utah could offer such
valuable help. Thank you composers of the Utah compact. Drown out the loud
extremists with reason and truth.
"Local law enforcement should focus on CRIME and not unnecessarily separate
families, it says." If the immigration is illegal, it is a
So their pro-illegal groups are going to copy Utah's? Will they use the word
immigrant also, instead of illegal immigration? If we are going to
solve the illegal immigration problem, the pro-illegal groups are going to have
to start saying the word.
