I have confirmed that Governor Herbert is going to head to Washington DC to pressure Congress to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants in Utah through waivers for HB116. For a full list of the problems within HB116 (besides amnesty) click here (for all posts related to HB116 click here). One thing to note is federal legislation would most likely apply to all states. If that is the case, then the illegal immigrant work permit waiver would not be limited to Utah but apply to all 50 States.
A phone call and email will travel much faster than the Governor’s plane. Call/email/fax your Representative and Senators (both of them) immediately and ask them not to be pressured to grant backdoor federal amnesty for illegal immigrants and discriminate against current and future legal immigrants.
