IMMIGRATION

We need to secure our borders, crack down on employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers, remove dangerous criminals from our country and require all people to go through the immigration process. The federal government has abandoned its responsibility to create reasonable and practical immigration reform, causing states to seek their own solutions.

While some are pushing for an Arizona-like solution for Utah, I am concerned with the Arizona law for constitutional reasons, and our state prison system is inadequately funded to handle an influx of non-dangerous offenders. As mayor, Salt Lake County has complied with all immigration laws and as governor, I will do the same.
