Utahn drafting a bill like Arizona’s
Rep. Stephen Sandstrom from Utah is drafting a bill like AZ’s bill SB1070. This will allow local law enforcement officers for immigration status documents ‘whenever there is reasonable suspicion that the person is unlawfully present’. He said a lot of illegal immigrants just move here. Critics maintain that racial profiling will occur and the 4th amendment right violated but Sandstrom says, “If you get pulled over for intoxication, what’s the first thing the officer asks for? Your ID right?” This law will be the same asking for documentation that relates to probable cause. Civil liberties Union of Utah director Karen McCreary says, “It’s unacceptable, it requires the carrying of papers, we just don’t do that in America.”
The end of the article Sandstrom says, ”I can tell you this the people in the state of Utah will be behind this bill.”
Thoughts?

I am pretty sure the Gov will veto this bill. They let illegal immigrants drive legally in Utah for crying out loud.

Any state that does not want to be flooded with illegals had better get busy on its own similar bill now. When the Arizona law takes effect, it will set off a wave of illegals to other states, then when Texas follows with its law, the wave will become massive tsunami of illegals.

Extreme situations require extreme solutions. States are going bankrupt, it doesn't get much more dire than that.

Even with an economic upswing (if that ever happens) people are still against paying for illegal residents in this country. Their marches and rallies have opened the eyes of many Americans. I doubt this will ever be acceptable in this country by it's majority.

I was just watching CNN and they said that Arizona is number 7 in the highest number of illegals. Ahead of them was California, Texas, Georgia, Utah and a couple of others. This pecan grower said that if it weren't for illegal immigrants his business would fail! If this is true he must not be paying them very much and maybe it is time to review his business model!!! What if someone is injured? He probobly says oh too bad your illegal go to the ER and don't tell them it was a work related injury.

People like this make me sick, it is an obvious reason why states are going to have to address illegal immigration. Vultures like him probobly pay the workers $10 a day, taking advantage of their illegal status...............shame on him.

Tourists here legally can drive where ever they want. To give someone here illegally a license of any flavor is ludicrous.
