On top of all that, with the 12-20+million already in this country illegally, they want Mexico to supply them with fresh illegals.

In a way this is good. We know the illegals have no desire to return to their own countries. Some states can no longer keep up the social services and provide the medical care and face high unemployment rates and cannot keep taking them in.

If the citizens of Utah wish to open up their doors to the illegals and make offer up Utah for them, fine, the illegals don't have to whine about Arizona and Oklahoma, they can simply relocate themselves to Utah. People of Utah - you want them, you got them.

“Be careful what you wish for” comes to mind.

Yes, because not only are the politicians of Utah inviting in anyone from all of Mexico, all of Central America, even Haiti and China, they are making Utah the future home of the illegals of states like Arizona and Oklahoma, and even the excess illegals of California.

And they are very foolish if they think they're all here to work and bring wages down to rock bottom, many will gladly live off food stamps and Medicaid.

If they want them they can have them.

I live in NJ. I was in the Sears in a local mall yesterday. They idiots running the store played announcements in Spanish and ONLY in Spanish.



After searching around fruitlessly for a sale item for ten minutes I found two store clerks behind the register. They chattered away in Spanish and ignored me for awhile. When they finally noticed me, I asked them where I could locate a specific item. They shrugged. One of them "Yo no ablo Inglish," and went back to talking to her other idiot friend in a foreign language.

If they're legal residents I'm the Queen of England.

If Utah wants people law breaking jerks too dumb and arrogant to speak English and store managers too stupid to welcome American shoppers then go ahead. NJ is not Mexico and I'd prefer to keep it that way.

Yes, illegals will flock to Utah like moths to a flame. However, it won’t take long before Utah is bankrupt. I’d like to know how they expect to provide tax-funded services for the hordes of non-taxpaying illegals. Even with a work permit, they won’t earn enough to add to the tax base. And again, how will taxes be withheld without a SSN? This is, by far, one of the most idiot laws enacted.

A word of advice... Stop throwing rocks in that glass house you live in. Sooner or later it'll all come down on you.

You have NO idea how I or someone else votes, but you sure have a knack for stereotyping.

The situation is grim and I will whine about it. More importantly, I will voice my opinion to our government. That's most likely more than you or the majority of American Citizens would do.

If illegal immigration goes on like it is,we will/are no longer "United".
I see the US being divided back into territories. If that's the way they want it, then as far as I'm concerned, California, Utah and who ever wants to join in, can be labeled as an "Undocumented, UnAmerican Territory.

If this gets signed by the governor, can we just send every single illegal to Utah and seal it off with a gigantic fence?

How does Utah have a manpower shortage. Mormons have the highest birthrates in the nation.
