I read in dismay your editorial exhorting the Utah population to be more helpful to the immigrants among us. It is obvious that you are not in touch with the realities. Immigrants, legal or illegal, enjoy — among other services — ESL education and free lunches for their children at our schools, free medical care if needed, translators in our judicial courts, in-state tuition in our universities, plenty of work without need of verification and the privilege to live in this country. What else do you want from the American taxpayer?

No, no, when it comes to immigration I refuse to donate my right arm, my left ear and a portion of my blood!
