Damn Immigrants Part 2

SB 1070 from Arizona is here in Utah. http://www.ksl.com/?nid=960&sid=14740983&autostart=y

Your thoughts?

I understand the need to control illegals. We can stop by reducing demand for their cheap labor. I know it's not that simple, but we walk a very thin line when we start what is essentially racial profiling.

I'ma lso not convinced the law will do anything to reduce/help the illegal immigrant population.....

Utah is one of the most conservative of all States, I really do'nt think this is going tobe a wave duplicated by other states any time soon.

But then again, the rush for Conservative ideas is reaching a renewed fevered pitch as Republicans ramp up fear rhetoric to oust the Dems in a year's time.

Your thoughts on immigration

Not your thoughts on people who are different from you. But what are your thoughts on the immigration debate, and soon to be law, that address the likes of illegals and foreign workers?

Simply put, this isn't an Arizona style law, I believe Arizona will take a back seat to the developments and attention paid to Utah. Utah will capture the nation's attention and will go further with their attempts to stem illegal immigration.

As with anything, one law won't help much. We need a holistic solution. Just creating bigger jails and harsher laws has rarely solved anything.

Any ideas?
