    Utah Focus Campaign

    Utah

    Adjourned sine die March 5, 2008

    Mission: To get the Utah State Senate to strengthen and pass SB 81 which is a version of the Oklahoma law, without amending it to give immunity to businesses and churches. Encourage passage of SB 210 'Proof of Citizenship Required to Vote bill.

    Task: Call and E-mail all members of the Utah State Senate

    Message Example (craft your own)

    Subject line: Please strengthen and support SB 81

    I'm writing / calling to ask Senator ____ to please support SB 81. We need the state of Utah to enforce immigration laws they refuse to enforce in DC. Please do not give businesses or churches immunity from the law. We must take action with companies that unscrupulously hire illegal aliens if we are to protect Americans from the negative impacts of crimes like illegal immigration and all of the associated criminal activity.
    We also need people calling and writing the Utah Governor to say.

    I want the Governor to sign any state level immigration enforcement legislation sent to him by the Utah assembly. Let the Utah state lawmakers that have been elected to represent the people of Utah do their work without fear of a veto by the Governor.

    Update on calls to Utah pol's

    Just got off the phone with Michael, aide to Sen. Hickman asking the senator to vote yes on HB 239 and HB 241 (how can the senator vote on HB's???) and he told me that Sen. Hickman has introduced SB 81 which encompasses the facets of HB 239 and Hb 241, but goes further: it will punish employers who hire illegals and puts the burden on the employer to do verification of citizenship or legal residency! He said it's already made it out of committee. I have not read the bills, but am assuming what he is telling me is correct. I asked the aide to please urge the senator to vote YES on HB239 and HB241 in addition to sponsoring SB81, just to be safe, in case the latter does not pass.

    My Exeprience with UTAH HB 239 and HB 241

    This is what I emailed:

    "Hello. I'm writing (and have called and left messages) asking you to vote YES on HB 239 and HB 241. I hope your efforts will go towards passing these bills immediately. HB 239 stops illegal aliens from receiving licenses (an American right and privilege) and HB 241 reverses Utah's policy of giving taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition to illegal aliens. Reversing this law will help other states to follow your example. Education and in-state tuition privileges should belong only to those who are here in America legally and lawfully.

    Please vote YES for both bills.

    Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,

    (My name)
    Baton Rouge, LA"

    I called all of the Senators on the list. Sen. Hickman's number was a bank and the lady I spoke with forwarded me to the Senate Office number where I spoke with another lady and she took a message. She said the Senators were all in session. I called two other Senators and spoke with a couple of ladies and they both passed messages along. The rest of the numbers passed me on to voice messaging systems so I left messages asking them to vote YES on HB 239 and HB 241.

    Hope it helped.

    ACTIVISTS! UT SB 210-'Proof of Citizenship Required to Vote' needs your help!

    Dear Concerned CItizen,

    SB 210 "Proof of Citizenship Required to Vote" is designed to keep
    illegal aliens from voting in our elections.
    As you know, voting is a
    right reserved for citizens only. There are those who would try to use
    illegal immigrants to manipulate our elections. Please contact Utah
    Senators and Representatives and let them know that you support SB 210 and oppose non-citizens voting in our elections. SB 210 will be voted on
    soon so please act quickly
    .
