What is there 3300 signatures on the Utah compact. That is less than 1% of the
population of Utah. The other 99% seem to want the illegals to go home. This
ranks right up there with the 150 signatures on the missionary/Mexico petition.
I obey the law and teach my children to be good, she said. The only thing Ive
done is get a fake Social Security number because its the only way I can
work.This was said at the meeting by an illegal woman talking about
being here. SO it's ok for illegals to commit identity theft? Another reason
for Sandstroms bill. We don't need this kind of mentality in Utah.
I wonder what problems this stolen SSN is going to cause for the real SSN owner.
They obey the law when it suits them, when it doesn't Legal immigrants and
Latinos do not need to worry about anything as long as they are legal. If they
are illegal, they can hit the road.
We are so fortunate to have so many latinos who want to work in Utah. Almost all
of them are wonderful contributors to our culture and economy. We need laws,
policies and processes that will bring more latino families to Utah without the
exploitation and criminalization in the current system. Latinos are going to
save our country when the Baby Boomer crunch really hits. We must prepare by
fixing our broken immigration system. We wouldn't want to lose their labor and
cultural contributions to other countries.
Please I encourage all Legal Residents to find out who your Utah State Senator
is and email them as they will be debating Rep. Sandstroms bill in the Senate
soon. We can't afford Illegals and their supporters to win this battle or to set
the Immigration policy in this state. We need Sanstroms and Herrods bills
passed, and the Illegals Driving cards repealed!
I would imagine any person here illegally would be upset over enforcement, no
matter what ethnic group.
Offender profiling: according to the PEW institute, 80% of the people here
illegally, breaking our laws are Hispanic. Yes, legal innocent
Hispanic's are suspect in the public's eyes. But the fault does not lie with the
public, but in the large majority of those who break the law from one ethnic
group. To change the perception, change those breaking the laws. When Hispanic leaders tell people to come here legally, then we will see
change in the public's perception.
Foriegn interference in our political process will lead to foriegn domination of
our country. Call your legislators today and demand an end to this outrageous
foriegn invasion. Pass all laws that will stop criminals from coming to Utah.
Coming from a family of mixed culture I am)And everyone is Born And very

Class A Misdemeanor or Felony...if you do not commit a crime, you should not
fear. If you have a fake SS card, you should fear. E-verify is the best tool and
should be used by all companies (mandated) to vet-out those who have fake
documents. Companies should be fined if they break the law. Heavily fined. Many
companies are turning a blind eye and not verifying. To those who state that
most Americans would not take those jobs....how do you know that? What we should
do is take our troops out of the middle east and put them into Mexico and take
out the home grown terrorists inside Mexico. Taliban = Cartels. Al Queda =
Fairenough4U: They are committing a crime just by being here illegally. They
are getting free health care, they commit crimes. they pay little to no taxes.
Polls can be written to produce the results desired, and this is just another
case where Dan Jones (and/or his employers) asked a loaded question.Then the "results" are used as "news" to push an agenda
and shape public opinion.
I am Latino and a proud legal immigrant and I will not sign the Utah Compact.
Yapias and other so called Latino leaders do not speak for me. Why should
illegals be treated differently? Where is the compassion towards people hurt by
illegal immigration? Sandstrom, thank you for having the guts to enforce our
immigration laws. Robles, shame on you for protecting illegals. You will be
why does the Des News constantly remove my postings on this subject??? I've
made several innocuously and non-disparaging remarks but yet the Des News
consider them harsh? Even if this post somehow makes it past the reviewer
(because I guess it's questioning the D-News), I really wonder how
many other people are just tired of either the rampant over burdening of social
services by one group (won't say the 'i' word because it might be too
disparaging) and then the complete duplicity of the media in covering up the
pent up frustration.Makes me wonder what is really going on with the
absolute power over the comment boards. By the way, absolute power corrupts
By all means, let us have all the criminals sign the Utah CON PACT, don't leave
any of them out. The ones who are breaking the law need to be counted right
along with ones who benefit by exploiting them. Brilliant idea there by Yapias.
When you sign this Utah Compact, please indicate if you're legal or illegal.
Thanks-a-bunch.Here are more people crying about racial profiling.
EVERYBODY who gets pulled over gets compared to a criminal database, as the
police are searching for perpetrators of other crimes. How in the world is it
"racial profiling" if EVERYONE is getting scanned for crimes they may
Im legal were all legal!Yet every nation lives here with uspinpoints
to solutionsThis became a even Bigger ProblemAs those that
are still breaking the law! Yes they should stay out of our
CountryFor breaking up family Seperation of culture is so
To all those that desire any felon to stay in America publish your address and
they will flock to your abode. You can take care and provide for them. When they
commit a federal crime don't call for local law enforcement. Call a fed.
Afterall, you claim this is a federal problem. Don't ask the church for help. We
provide for the world unconditionally. These felons expect the help or is the
billions they cost our imagination. Twice the church has directed members to
leave church centered areas because it led to unemployment, overcrowding and a
burden on the population and church for welfare assistance. That in turn places
a burden on those who sacrifice to help and takes away from those truely needed.
I remind all members about The Articles of Faith, The Law of Living Providently
and Building Zion, thier home, in the lands they live. Settlers did it in the
SLV by sacrificing, suffering and dying. These Felons can do no less. Change
where you left for the betterment of all. For those who want to stop missionary
work, The Lord will take care of you. Brother Bradshaw, Scotchtown Ward. Home of
Patrick Henry. WHO?
Of course they are encouraging all Latinos to sign the Utah Compact. "The
main principle is that immigration is a federal responsibility, not one for the
states." They know the feds have not done anything about it in the past and
I don't see them doing anything in the near future. If Utah and all the other
states start dealing with this problem like Sandstrom proposes, Utahs problem
and many of our illegals will go back to South America. Utahns are
"friendly people" but we are also law abiding people. It is time for
Utahns to stop being an enabler and enforce illegals home. We will continue to
be "friendly people" to those who enter our state legally.
Agribusinesses should be concerned, because taxpayers right now are supporting
the children of illegal workers. Americans are hardly aware that the agriculture
companies, including mega farms do not pay for the children education, health
care or other financial services. It's yet another massive corporate welfare
programs, that citizens and legal residents are being taxed. Join NumbersUSA,
and the Tea Party and find out the truth, where hundreds of billions
of--YOUR--money is going? Confront your Senator, Congressman at State and
Federal level at 202-224-3121 and ask them why farm and agricultural employers
are not supporting their Guest Workers in Health Care and education, and other
social programs for the illegal alien children and family members?
The compact is nothing more that a call to stay the way things are. I don't think that is acceptable.
Thanks "legalimmigrant 8:53 am". Good comment. 3 years ago I was
going to take a job in Japan....until I found it would be $25,000 each to school
my children (3). How about charging the employers of illegals for the schooling
of their children. Or better yet just enforce the law and fine them big time.
I've never witnessed criminals receive such a free pass in my life. A woman
confesses to stealing a SSN and she wasn't arrested on the spot? Really?And people wonder why America is losing her greatness?
Let me get this straight....So illegal aliens break our laws in coming here and
then fight to be protected by establishing LAWS?That's the problem
with most immigrants is they want the American dream without doing the things
that make the dream possible. All they see is what's here but don't understand
how it all came to be: Learn English, pay taxes, get your OWN SSN, obey the
law, get an education, work and contribute to SS. It has nothing to
do with hate. The current situation is not sustainable. Deport them all and
let them come legally.
They don't want the American dream, they have no intention of assimilating or
becoming citizens. They are here for the higher paying jobs.
