One politician I truly admire. We need more like him. He had the courage to stand up to the far right on immigration. I wish more politicians had the courage of their convictions and more of a sense of humanity for others.


I am sure that those who promote illegal immigration and ID theft of citizens will miss him. But I see his allegiance to the Salt Lake chamber, and their surplus illegal labor policies, and I won't miss him at all.

Any law enforcement officer that refuses to obey the laws in this country need to be removed. Perhaps that is a small part of this countries problem. If you can't trust enforcement agencies, and you see them not following the laws, does it make you feel less safe?

i disagree.
he failed to stand against the liberal left and support families. he was a puppet to the DCFS
i say "good riddance!"


Shurtleff IS a grandstander. Taking credit for Warren Jeffs? Are you serious? Jeff's & his ilk flourished in Utah under Shurtleff. Only took Texas a few years to do what Shurtleff couldn't do in 12 years.

A good man who never allowed himself to be intimidated by extremists of any ilk. If you knew his father and how fair he was as a school administrator--and the kindness he showed to ALL Brighton High students, it doesn't surprise you to see that the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

Salt Lake City, UT

Standing up for protecting children's ID's and indeed their birthrights from theft by illegal aliens -- by obeying, honoring and sustaining the law of the land -- is NOT an "extremist" position. In fact, it is dead center -- exactly where it is supposed to be. To imply that such is an "extremist" position is a lie.
