Thread: Utah Gov. Herbert Defends New Immigration Law Protecting Undocumented Immigrants

  1. #1
    Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert issued a statement last week defending Utah’s new immigration law in a rebuttal to U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith’s comment that the federal government should sue Utah to stop its immigrant guest-worker program.


    In a letter sent to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Smith, R-Texas, said Utah’s new immigration law, adopted in the 2011 legislative session as H.B. 116, is “usurping Congress” and “the employment of illegal immigrants is a direct threat to American workers.” Herbert signed the law on March 15 but it is not scheduled to take effect for two years.

    In all fairness, that law passed by Utah is meaningless, just as one passed by Arizona, since INA is the Federal matter and not controlled by States.
    To be consistent AG Holder must now sue Utah , although it would be better if cooler heads prevailed and Utah retracted the useless law it passed thus saving lots of taxpayer money from being wasted on this case.
    May be it's a publicity stunt to attract a media attention to something that would counterbalance AZ1070 type of laws, but it is not the best strategy to copy the failing move of your opponents and create a failure of your own. What is the purpose?

    HS News is a racist rag with an agenda of demolishing the sovereignty of the United States and pandering to brown-colored illegal aliens.

    In its posting, HS News opposes the view that the federal government "should sue Utah to stop its immigrant guest-worker program."

    Well, first, LEGAL immigrants DON'T NEED a guest-worker program...only ILLEGAL immigrants need such a program. However, the racist rag isn't honest enough to make the distinction...and it hopes that you won't make the distinction either.

    Second, if the federal government is suing Arizona for enacting SB 1070 - and seems likely to sue against Georgia's similarly far-sighted law - then it MUST also sue Utah. Simply because the Administration appears to support Utah's law doesn't mean that it shouldn't be challenged on the same basis.

    In any event, Utah's law doesn;t take effect for at least two years, and is conditioned on a waiver being granted by the federal government...a waiver that will NEVER be issued.

    The racist rag can't have it both ways...a state can either enact immigration-related legislation or it can't.

    IT'S THAT SIMPLE!

    That Utah law isn't valid and, unless ICE grants deferral and EAD on the basis of State residence (something too unlikely to happen), it will not stand a chance of having a legal force. If it goes to court like AZ law it will be an irrational waste of resources.

    According to me, The Utah solution is not a solution to immigration, it is just addressing some of the real world situations that the state. This congressman represent our state was critical of our solution, and there would be no need for a Utah solution if the U.S. government would issue a response.

    In light of latest developments it looks like Congress may indeed enact a Law that would make it legal for States to administer their own Guest Worker programs.

    There were hearings dedicated to it on Feb 10th.
