    Many immigrants have succeeded in America. Many immigrants have started businesses and become rich in America. I watched a 60 minutes segment on one (the owner of Chobani Greek Yogurt) last week. Why is it only celebrated when an Immigrant becomes rich in America? And it's evil and to be despised if others (Trump etc) find success in America?

    Why does the left and the media have this double standard? They constantly put down CEOs or business owners who become successful, but if they are an immigrant... they celebrate it. Why?

    I think it's great when either group succeeds. Why does the left only see it as good if it's an immigrant?

    Why is there no award for Bulmaro Mejia-Maya? His notoriety from his days in Murray is serving him well today.

    Trump would be the first to shake the hands of those four award winners. In fact, he is seeking to invite here those people with skill and merit, as opposed to those who are simply related to someone who is already here.

    Let's cut to the chase. Like the Utah Compact, Trump's agenda isn't about immigrants; it's about illegal aliens. The Utah Compact was playing fast and loose with our sovereignty, suggesting that self-selected people who came here illegally should be allowed to stay, rather than our citizens having the right to determine who, and how many, can come here.

    I take issue with the Chamber, United Way and Deseret News who are campaigning for amnesty through photo ops about immigrants. This isn't about xenophobia. They know better.
