Immigration in Utah

As you no doubt are aware, the amnesty bill (S.744) passed by the Senate is apparently DOA in the House.  This is partially because the Senate bill has "tax" provisions in it.   Art 1, sec 7 specifies that ALL revenue bill must originate in the House, hence S.744 can not be heard.       

HOWEVER, it might easily be resurrected in a conference committee IF the House passes nearly any type of bill on immigration.  A conference committee, could come to a "bi-partisan" compromise (with some sort of legalization, aka amnesty) which might easily be passed into law.

August is a recess MONTH, now is the time to lobby Utah's Representatives while they are here in the state.   See Town Hall schedule below for meetings for the rest of the month.    Generally all four Utah Reps are on the right side of the immigration issue (no amnesty), but they need to be encouraged to stay firm.    

Contact your Rep, attend the meetings, ask the questions, (Why amnesty?   Why more low skilled workers?   Why not protect the currently unemployed?  Jobs, Jobs, Jobs?) Request that NO action be taken on immigration this year.  

The currently decried "De facto" amnesty, is probably better than the proposed REAL amnesty.    Enforcement or even a complete use of EVerify would be a far better solution.    
Individual bills clarifying birthright citizenship and chain migration MIGHT be possible - if it can be shown that it will NOT lead to a bicameral conference committee.
