Utah Immigration Law 2011
Utah's Immigration Law
When Do the Feds Go After Utah?
I know this law by the Utah legislature, and subsequently sign by Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert, was passed into law on March 18th of this year. But, I want to give my two cents on it. What this law does is reflect Arizona's SB1070 in that police can ask people about their immigration status if detained for felonies. Arizona's law allows police to ask about immigration status on any law broken by a suspect. Now, as everyone must be aware, the federal government wasted little time in going after Arizona on SB1070. The Obama administration's argument is that only the federal government can make immigration law. So, with President Obama's blessing, Attorney General Eric Holder filed suit against the state of Arizona over SB1070.
The Utah Immigration Law of 2011 allows a guest-worker program that is in violation of federal law. To this date, April 9, 2011, there is no movement from the Obama administration to go after Utah which, by their own arguments in court, is a violation of federal immigration law. Why has the Obama administration refused to file even a court brief in response to the Utah immigration law? Maybe it is because they support at least one aspect of the Utah Immigration Law; the guest-worker program. This law allows illegals currently in the state to remain "legally". Again, this is against federal immigration law. The hypocrisy of the Obama administration over immigration absolutely smells to high heaven of a double-standard on this issue. SEIU thugs, ACORN, La Raza and other open borders advocates marched on the state capitol in Arizona over SB1070. The Utah Immigration Law has a weaker enforcement policy than SB1070 in Arizona. But, even that is not enough for the open borders zealots in Utah. They are raising hell about the enforcement area of the Utah Immigration Law and have threatened to file lawsuits as a result. Basically, I think we can all agree that racist groups like La Raza will never be satisfied until our southern border is completely erased. We are getting to that point anyway.
I have personally made complaints to both my U.S. Senators over the federal government not going after the illegal Utah Immigration Law of 2011. If you believe in the rule of law, I urge you to do likewise. Utah State Rep. Bill Wright made the same stupid argument that has been made before when he stated, "I'm of the opinion that we really don't have the ability as a society to remove that large a portion of a segment from our society — either the cost, or just the damage it would do." So, basically, what he is saying is that the same country that sent men to the moon before there was such a thing as personal computers, the country that wins more scientific Nobel Prizes than any other, the country with such bright people as the Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Jonas Salk, Steven Jobs and Bill Gates, can't figure out a way to deport 12-20 million people? Does anyone really believe that BS? Seriously? The point is, you don't have to deport the illegals. They will self-deport if you do two things; make e-verify mandatory for every business in the country with penalties of prison time if they don't and change the 14th amendment to where at least one parent must be a U.S. citizen (not legal resident) before their baby can be declared a U.S. citizen. That eliminates the magnet of social programs for illegals. They know this crap.
The Utah Immigration Law of 2011 should have been disavowed by the Obama administration and by the MSM as strongly as they did AZ SB1070. Of course, this will never happen because it doesn't fit their respective agendas. The Utah Immigration Law is as illegal as the illegals it helps with the guest-worker program that allows them to stay "legally" in the state of Utah. This aspect of the Utah Immigration Law of 2011 will create more illegals into that state and the rest of the country. One more thing; I do believe if Obama and Eric Holder continue to not file a lawsuit against Utah over their making immigration law (just as Arizona did) then this will only help make Arizona's SB1070 argument stronger in court. Why? Because the federal government is showing it's bias toward a portion of a state created immigration law they support. The law of the land is supposed to be applied equally. The Obama administration wouldn't know equality of the law if it kicked them in the ass.
