    LDS stance on immigration puts Latino leaders at odds

    LDS stance on immigration puts Latino leaders at odds

    A public divide surfaced between Latino leaders Friday when several high-profile immigration activists criticized the LDS Church for not going far enough in supporting the Utah Compact — a document designed to tamp down angry rhetoric on the issue.

    Archie Archuleta, chairman of the Utah Coalition of La Raza, said the church made progress with its statement emphasizing families and humane treatment of undocumented immigrants while throwing the issue back to the federal government.

    But Archuleta and Frank Cordova, president of Centro Civico Mexicano, believe LDS Church leadership should have signed the compact and said that all state immigration bills should be put on hold.

    I'm sure LDS has figured out why La Raza is snuggling up to them. They are out to use them. The Race knows LDS is the political force in Utah.

    I hope the people of Utah see through this glass mountain and forge ahead with an AZ immigration bill to enforce US immigration law in their state using state and local police officers. I am one federal tax payer who is fed up to the gills and sick to the point of nausea of paying taxes to fund federal agencies to stop illegal immigration only to have them do the complete opposite. I trust the states much more to enforce these laws. That's not to say we don't continue to need Border Patrol, of course we do, and we still need ICE to verify immigration status and deport some of the illegal aliens, but they have a total of 42,000 employees most of them in ties and khakis doing office work and aren't on the ground every day in every city and county in America while we have 800,000 state and local police officers covering the entire country every day who are on the ground, driving through the very neighborhoods and work places and street corners and alleys and farms and construction sites and welfare offices and schools and hospitals and parks and roadways where all the illegal aliens are every day.

    When Border Patrol and ICE and even the Immigration Courts were set up, we have a few thousands illegal aliens in the country. It was never intended by design that these agencies ward off or deport or arrest tens of millions of illegal aliens. It's not possible for them to do it even with the vastly expensive operations they have currently. Their programs didn't work because the onslaught was much greater than the capacity their agencies were designed to handle.

    So, there is absolutely no other alternative now than for the states to use their much more comprehensive law enforcement operations and state courts to arrest, detain, process and deport illegal aliens, and of course do so with families intact, no children left behind.

    No one who wants to stop illegal immigration wants families to be separated. I'm sure we all agree that we want the entire illegal alien family deported.

    I'm sure in the new Congress there will be legislation that bans any use of federal funds to assist illegal aliens including education funds.

    It is time to ask those latino activists what it is exactly they want. It so blatant so obvious that they will not assimilate like all other ethnicities races etc have but they want is a Spanish speaking America they want an American Canada. It is time to ask those activist at all levels of our politics what exactly they want and man ask them the hard questions. This nonsense needs to stop and we ALL. know it. Enough with political correctness the misplaced compassion and what not. This is America and if those activists don't speak the langauge of assimilation of one America they need to be exposed for who they are and what they want a special treatment bc somehow their numbers are growing. This is called demographic hegemony and our politicians are playing with fire when they pander. Enough. We need to ask All immigrant what exactly they want here in America. This potentially very very dangerous. A line needs to drawn in the sand and it is time to stop this.
