We are a nation of legal immigrants. We are also a nation of laws and should
never tolerate rewarding of illegal behavior to satisfy the greed of a few. Utah is not Arizona, their laws were based on the principles of right
and wrong, Utah's solution is based on greed of the business community. We
should not be bragging, but cowering in the dark.
It amazes me how the DNews can print these pro-illegal alien (not immigrant)
pieces day after day and not put them in the editorial section where they
belong.We The People of Utah will not stand for Amnesty and we will
certainly not stand for the actions like that of our AG and Sen. Robles
representing the interests of Mexican Nationals and Mexico, above those of Utah
and The United States of America.(I am talking about legal redress,
guaranteed by our constitution not any kind of threat, in case the DNews wants
to pull this post.)
If Burbank doesn't like the enforcement bill then we know it is on the right
track for sure. He may have to start doing his job. We need a new Police Chief
as soon as possible. This law is a total waste of time. If Herbert signs this
into law we will be flooded with illegals and he will be done as Governor.
Utahns are law-abiding and prefer compassionate state enforcement to amnesty,
which has created the problems they now face: document fraud, child ID theft,
job competition for unskilled Americans, more crime in the streets, and
increased taxpayer expenses. That's why I am confused by the passage of HB 116.
I also question the creation of guest worker programs under HB 116
or HB 469 because they are unconstitutional (this is federal territory),
unnecessary (federal guest worker programs already exist), and counterproductive
in helping unemployed Utahns. With respect to HB 497, I hope you
will ignore the distortions bill opponents are circulating and focus on what
citizens want -- more effective immigration enforcement. Unlike the other two
bills, HB 497 is clearly constitutional and worthy of being signed into law.
We are a nation of immigrants. Get used to it.
Does governor Herbert really want to go the way of the RINSO Chris Cannnon and
Bob Bennett? Do these legislators really think we are this stupid and that
we'll just go back to sleep and forget what they've done here? I say no, andd
we need to prove it to them that we are angry and we mean business.If Herbert signs the amnesty bill (HB 116) then it's time for Utahns to rise
up and recall him. If nothing else, we must REMEMBER these actions by all of
these traitors the next time they ask us for our votes.
I am truly saddened by the action of the Utah Legislature. I hope the citizens
of Utah realize that not only have their legislators passed a law that is
contrary to their wishes, but they are congradulating themselves on doing so.It's sad.
I LOVE the legislation! It's a good, comprehensive way to deal with a complex
issue.I applaud our legislators for innovative solutions that
balance justice with compassion.Now, if only the Federal government
could do the same.
"Utah Solution?" Quite a label for stupidity. Anyone purposely
stepping in "do-do" can't complain about having to clean off their
shoes. Opening the doors of the state to an influx of illegals is asking
for an influx of criminal behavior, dependents on welfare, medical care, school
overload with students that lower the ability of teachers to teach at grade
level. But,hey, don't look at the morass called California, just comfort
yourselves with the thought that you know how to do it better.
Please sign the online petition to urge Herber to veto HB 116 (the "giving
away work permits to illegals" bill). Google "veto HB 116" and
sign the petition. Thanks.
The Salt Lake Chamber of commerce needs to be shut down. If they can't support
Americans, then Americans should stop supporting them.
Only 1 of the immigration bills passed by the Utah Legislature is even close to
what Utahns want. There are already existing Federal programs to bring in
agricultural workers. The only problem is, no one is checking to make sure that
Utah businesses employ legal workers. And that, of course, is what the Salt
Lake Chamber was concerned about all along. Businesses want to be able to hire
illegals for wages that legal workers won't accept. And they pass the cost of
illegals in our Community on to us and all Businesses. Why don't Businesses
figure out that they are paying unemployment insurance for Utahns, while only
some businesses get the advantage of illegal workers?
So what's so "wrong" about Arizona? Too AMERICAN for you?
My Utah Solution is this. Work very hard to make sure those who voted for this
travesty do not enjoy re election. Hear me Sen Reid.
For a person breaking the law to come here and work illegally, buying a guest
worker pass is amnesty. This is an all out assault on the survival
of the American family.
Since June 2009, illegal immigrants gained 373,920 jobs, while U.S. born workers
lost 1.2 million. (PEW Hispanic center) With real US unemployment at 16-22%
(including those out of benefits, or working part time) there is no reason for
any job to go to a non American. The issue of illegal immigration is now a fight
for the survival of the American family.

HB469? That bill makes it possible for Utah to set up it's own department of
slavery. How did that ever get passed? A person can sponsor someone coming here
from another country, set them up as a housekeeper, concubine etc. Send them
home if they don't work out, and to make sure they don't run away, they are
restricted to Utah and can't leave the state. Yeah, the Federal
government will allow that for sure.
"The guest worker program does not provide a pathway to
citizenship."This claim made by the Dnews is completely false.
All a guest worker must do is continue applying and working until his/her kids,
born in the U.S., turn 18 and then they can be sponsored for citizenship.It's back door amnesty and the dishonesty in the way the bill has been
presented is shameful.
