I read with dismay that the LDS Church has requested the element of humanity be re-introduced in the state's immigration debate (Jan. 19). In my opinion, the real inhumane situation is the current one. It allows illegal workers to be used and abused by construction and restaurant business, among others.

The taxpayer is also abused by having to pay these individuals' medical care, court services and education for their youngsters. Perhaps the church could alleviate this "inhumane" situation by volunteering to pay for the social services provided to illegal immigrants in the state.
