Let’s see if Obama and Holder ignore this. After all, the employment of illegal aliens is a violation of Federal Law. Furthermore, they still need a SSN to work. Or, perhaps they intend to violate that law also.

SALT LAKE CITY — State lawmakers pushed through a series of bills touted as a Utah solution to illegal immigration, though it nearly crumbled like a House of cards late Friday night.

HB116 will:

Establish in the Department of Public Safety a program for illegal immigrants to obtain a work permit in Utah.

isnt utah a republican stronghold in state government?

funny that they would pass this bill.

of course this proves my point that republicans would push amnesty even possibly moreso then dems to gain a voting block.

Illegal immigration and amnesty enjoy bipartisan support in government. This is no secret to many of us, since it was a Republican president who did the first amnesty

That's what happens when you watch only Fox News. Yes it's the only mainstream US news channel I watch, but I balance it out with Alex Jones and Russia Today (recently). Then again, it's nothing I already knew. Both parties are really one party, and they just play the abortion/anti-abortion game and the fake class warfare while we're being raped by the mega banks

No truer words. We are being played by both parties. Sadly, the sheeple have been so thoroughly indoctrinated to adhere to party loyalty, they don’t even realize they are mere puppets on a string. In reality, there is no difference between the Democrat and Republican politicians, because neither side has our best interest at heart. Most are greedy narcissists, motivated by their insatiable thirst for power. Yet, their blind followers continue to rip each other apart like wild animals, because no matter what, they MUST defend “their side.”

Unless people wake up and see politicians for the crooks they are, our country is doomed. In my entire life, I have never witnessed such vitriolic partisan bickering as now. The puppeteers must be proud.
