What's wrong with you at the ACLU anyaway? Are you threatened in some way that your meal tickets are going to be no more. This is about illegal aliens not immigrants.We don't want illegal aliens here,why is that so hard for you to understand!

Utah's immigration law is absolutely the correct, proper and legal thing to do, trying to apply enforcement when the feds have utterly failed in their responsibility to control the border.

That should be an open and shut case, but political correctness and liberal activist judges may rule otherwise, to the detriment of our country.

One thing the state of Utah can and should do is to ensure that not a dollar of state funding ever goes to any entity suing the state over this law. Not a dime! Not a cent!

Usually what is right is also legal, but in this case the two may be ruled to be divergent, and that is a real mockery of the laws that made this country great.

Once again, if immigration laws need not be enforced for the benefit of illegals, then how can anyone discriminate against legal taxpaying citizens if they choose to ignore laws they do not like or harm them and their families economically?

The Hispanic groups have asked that we only go after the hardened criminals. That's all this law does. It checks the immigration status of those arrested, and if found to be in the country illegally, they are reported to ICE for further action. Now the ACLU is trying to stop the law from going into effect, and one of their clients is La Raza? I'm confused.

If the police arrest or detain any person they are obligated to produce identification and immigrations status as a matter of federal laws and the Utah laws only reinforces the federal law. The ACLU should have their charter canceled and investigate everyone in the ACLU for treason and unAmerica activity, maybe we can get rid of an also criminal ACLU organization.

At the very least their charter should be changed to MCLU, Mexican Civil Liberty Union and force them to get a license from Mexico and validated and approved to operate in the US as a foreign legal counsel for illegal Mexicans. The ACLU is funded and wrought with conflicts of interest who have forgotten their own country of origin and what country's laws they are supposed to represent.

I believe that the ACLU should be shut down on this matter and to deal with only what will benifit the legal people in this country and stop defending the illegals that are here and breaking the law. If they refuse then go after them with the fullest extent that the law will allow. I am tired of hearing about the illegals and their rights, when they have broken the law in the first place, send them back to where they came from and tell them to enter this country legally and if they don't put them in jail and deport them again. Show no mercy to law breaker and those who harbor them.

Over 80% of the American people want our immigration laws enforced. This is a no brainer enforce the law and people will comply.
