    It is good to see there are still Patriots, who believe in the laws of the U.S. Citizens who are willing to take a stand against organizations like the LDS Church, the Sutherland Institute, and the Salt lake City Chamber of Commerce. It is unfortunate that these influential organizations choose to shield illegals from the consequences of the law and grant them amnesty without really complying with the meaning and intent of U.S. Immigration Laws.

    I think it is highly important for we as a nation to be successful and flourish, to establish a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population.

    Without this labor. Our farms, ranches, (plantations) will perish, our economy will collapse, our nation will not survive.

    The adults of Sutherland Institute and Chamber of Commerce in their wisdom are really looking out for our best interests. Because we citizens of Utah are only children.

    SB60 is ruse, another cunning disguise, for amnesty. "Accountability" blah blah blah. And of course it would be referred to by the obfuscating and euphemistic term: "comprehensive immigration policy."

    Notice that their plan is neither truly "comprehensive" nor does it truly hold illegal invaders and identity thieves "accountable" for their crimes by duly jailing them, imprisoning them, fining them, and deporting them as per the law.

    Of course the measure would translate to an abundance of cheap, foreign labor for Utah businessmen so that they don't have to pay their fellow American citizens a fair wage.

    It also would be a means for Robles to establish a great many more of her people -- i.e., the Mexican people -- in this country.

    What does it tell you about Mero that he would want such a thing -- despite Utah's high unemployment rate?

    What does it tell you about Robles that she would want to reward persons who have demonstrated such disrespect for the United States, its laws, and its sovereignty and who pledge their allegiance to Mexico -- even though doing so arguably would be detrimental to the integrity, unity, and well-being of THIS country?

    Allowing illegal aliens to stay in Utah is not "accountability". Requiring them to return to their country of origin and legally immigrate is.

    Handing out jobs to illegals will not solve our nation's serious unemployment woes. There are citizens willing to work for those wages if you'd give them the chance.

    Pure evidence that the Sutherland institute is anything but a conservative organization.......Someone needs to start a true Utah Based Conservative Institution who speaks for the majority here in Utah.....take back our State from these RINO Radicals...

    Mero and Robles need to give it up. We can't grant amnesty and pull business licenses.

    I just knew there was a reason that I do not like Democrats.
