Bill unveiled to deal with undocumented immigrants

November 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

Undocumented immigrants in Utah would be required to carry a state-issued permit, learn English and be subject to criminal background checks while employers would face financial penalties for hiring those without the permits, under a bill unveiled Tuesday by state Sen. Luz Robles. The 21-page draft of the bill essentially puts the onus on the undocumented immigrants to come forward, register for an “accountability card” and emerge from the shadows of society. It is being framed as an alternative to Rep. Stephen Sandstrom’s enforcement-only bill modeled after the controversial Arizona immigration law that requires local police to check the legal status of those suspected of criminal activity or committing an infraction. “This is a better solution to a broken immigration policy and a more realistic solution as well,” the Salt Lake City Democrat said.
