Immigration

This has been a very controversial and emotional issue the past few years.  First of all, the federal system is broken.  The federal government continues to refuse to enforce the border and our current immigration laws.  This puts great pressure on the states to deal with the situation.  I have supported and continue to support enforcement provisions that allow us to get rid of the criminal element of illegal immigration.  I also support E-Verify.  In fact my business uses E-Verify on all of our employees.  That is current Utah law.  We do need to pass a modification to the state E-Verify law to conform with some constitutional issues in the current law; we can withhold a business license but we can’t fine them as our current law does.
