    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.

    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.

    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.

    i disagree.
    he failed to stand against the liberal left and support families. he was a puppet to the DCFS

    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?

    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.
