Anti-Immigration Group Tells Utah to Oust Hatch, Herbert

An anti-illegal immigration group has targeted Utah U.S. Sen. Orin Hatch and Gov. Gary Herbert after the state passed immigration laws creating a state-based guest worker program, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Tuesday.

Americans for Legal Immigration, a Raleigh, N.C.-based group, urged voters in Utah to oust Hatch and Herbert for supporting “amnesty for illegal aliens.”

Hatch, who didn’t’ take a position on the state law and wasn’t involved with it, posted a letter on his Senate website answering the group.

“I do not support amnesty and in fact have voted against it even during Ronald Reagan’s tenure as president,” Hatch said.

The group didn’t buy it and on Monday reiterated its charge.

“Our sources on the ground in Utah tell us that you are in cahoots on this plan to deflect amnesty concerns on the state level and away from your deplorable voting record that shows a clear pattern of support for the mass invasion of America,” said William Gheen, who is president of the group’s political action committee.
