Lawmakers at odds over how rosy future is
My concern on illegal immigration is jobs being taken from our legal citizens. A
new study from Northeastern University shows that between 2008-2010, 1.1 mill
newly arriving aliens gained jobs while US household employment declined by 6.26
mill. (Reuters, 1/20/11). The study shows that aliens who are landing jobs tend
to be young, uneducated, unskilled or semi-skilled. Of the 1.1 mill aliens
landing jobs, 42% were under 30. Yet, the unempl rate for all Americans without
a high school diploma in this age group is exceptionally high, about 27%-29%.The
study found that many of the jobs obtained by these aliens were in the
construction industryjobs that are routinely sought by American workers.
Professor Andrew Sum, Dir. of the Center for Labor Market Studies, said that
35% of these workers were undocumented or illegal."Employers have chosen to
use new immigrants over native-born workers and have continued to displace large
numbers of blue-collar workers and young adults without college degrees."
One of the advantages of hiring, particularly young, undocumented immigrants, is
the fact that employers do not have to pay health benefits or basic payroll

level of law enforcement over their hunting and fishing habits that they demand
for immigration enforcement? What does this comment have to do with
immigration reform? Did I miss something that the DWR has or has not done?And wanting laws enforced does not make one prejudice.
It always cracks me up when people with very strong prejudice against immigrants
can't speak or write English themselves. Maybe that should be a prerequisite for
voting, and for posting opinions on the Web.So, evidently the
prejudice is not due to language problems. Then what are they prejudiced
against? Could it be skin color? Would they want the same level of law
enforcement over their hunting and fishing habits that they demand for
I would hope all legislature's remember their voting districts and the wishes of
the "voting leagal" members. I, for one, will base future votes on
the stance my rep's take on immigration.
Anyone else wonder why this is categorized under "Crime?" Makes one
Great, the legislature will have another go at reducing education funding while
at the same time adding unfunded mandates like letter grades for schools. It's
a wonder any big company would want to move here with our legislators disdain
for education and their willingness to nickel and dime it to death. I can't
wait for some hair brain "message bill" as well.
Illegal Latino's issues is one of foreign occupation and nothing to do with
immigration which this state cannot write laws to change the federal laws. Utah
cannot grant immunity, amnesty, harbor to, or payment to illegal foreign
nationals seeking immigration or identification papers.===================================And this is very correct!
'SALT LAKE CITY When the 2011 Legislature begins Monday, much of the focus will
be on immigration, an issue that's dominated the headlines for months.' -
Article Neither of which was an issue when Republicans had the
majority in the House... AND the senate. The $4 trillion
dollars in added debt support this. Once again Utah trys to
purposefully make anti-discrimination measures a non-issue. Rather, trying to
leave it to the state level. 11 cities have a non-discrimination
ordinance regarding employment and housing based on orientation.
Notice, I didn't even need to say what kind of orientation you have.
The first rule of order for this new legislature is to make all legislators
swear their allegiance and loyalty to america every morning with the pledge of
alliance to America and the republic for which it stands, including sen Robles,
the terrorist in the legislation.Budget and immigration. Budget I
can understand but immigration is a non issue, just enforce the laws and
reinforces the sworn duties and obligations law enforcement has to enforce
federal as well as state laws.Illegal Latino's issues is one of
foreign occupation and nothing to do with immigration which this state cannot
write laws to change the federal laws. Utah cannot grant immunity, amnesty,
harbor to, or payment to illegal foreign nationals seeking immigration or
identification papers. Any law Utah writes in conflict to immigrant laws and
labor laws will be easily be disqualified as unconstitutional so don't even
try.Budget cuts can easily be accomplished by eliminating many
programs and funds going directly to illegal alien programs, including language
classes and welfare, health care, education (foreign national teachers), and day
care, and stop the birthright abuse by illegal anchor babies. Identify all
program users with US citizenship.
