    Utah's Undocumented Immigrants Lacked Voice in Congressional

    Utah's Undocumented Immigrants Lacked Voice in Congressional Debate
    Jul 03, 2007 by Julie Rose

    (KCPW News) Opponents of an immigration reform proposal jammed the phone lines of Congress last week in the final hours of a crucial vote that ultimately stalled the measure. Local activist Alex Segura was among the callers, and he credits conservative radio and cable TV hosts with mobilizing opposition to the measure.
    It would have tightened border security, cracked down on employers hiring undocumented workers and provided a path to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. But Segura and many opponents say it was unacceptable because it offered amnesty for undocumented people currently in the U.S.

    Tony Yapias of the Utah Latino Project says the voice of undocumented workers was missing in the debate. He urged many illegal immigrants in Utah to have their friends, church members and employers call Congress in their support. But Yapias laments the Latino community was unable to rally enough support for the immigration bill.

    Senate leaders now suggest it will be difficult to revive the topic again until after the 2008 election.

    In the meantime, Segura and his supporters are turning their attention to Utah law, hoping to abolish the driving privilege card and in-state tuition benefits for undocumented immigrants. ... s&ie=UTF-8

    It wasn't missing at all! UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS are illegal aliens, breaking the laws of this country. They HAVE NO SAY, they HAVE NO RIGHTS, except the right to go back where they came from, and apply to come in the FRONT DOOR.......LEGALLY.

    Our laws and Constitution don't give them a say for a REASON. It's extremely arrogant to indicate they even have a say!!

    Maybe part of the problem is when you call congress you don't have to press 1 for English or....

    If congress listened to illegals it would be called influence by a foreign government which is supposely illegal in our government. Mexico has stepped so far over the line that they need to be told to get out of their consulates immediately on only the embassy in DC can stay open.

    Utah's illegal aliens might be undocumented but they are not immigrants. Go back home and KNOCK on the door the right way!
    We are NOT a nation of immigrants!
