My heart goes out to families in other countries racked by poverty, crime, and violence. I too would seek a better life in another country. However, immigration must be legal and ordered, and defiance of our laws cannot be ignored. We must stop illegal immigration and enforce the sanctity of our borders and our laws. Removing the incentives for illegal immigration, such as illegal employment, free health care and social services, and birth-right citizenship for illegal immigrants, will help. This is an issue of public safety, as criminals and drug cartels freely cross into our country and cultivate marijuana on our own public lands--right here in Utah! As a sovereign state, we have the right and the duty to exercise our police power to require documentation of aliens and to protect our own citizens.
