Utah Immigration Law Brings Calls for Repeal

Thursday, 31 Mar 2011 05:17 PM

The new Utah immigration law that includes a guest worker program for illegal immigrants is already drawing calls for repeal. One group has launched a website pressing lawmakers to repeal the measure: www.repeal116.com, the Deseret News reported Thursday.

The site designed to create a groundswell of objection to the new law, which Republican Gov. Gary Herbert signed this month.

"It's mainly aimed at legislators and the governor to get them to rethink their actions," said Ron Mortensen, founder of the Utah Coalition on Illegal Immigration.

Brandon Beckham, who designed the website, said he wants the governor to call a special session in June to repeal the guest worker bill.

“Governor Herbert should not have signed the bill. The (Republican) delegates now hope to emphasize the consequences of our elected officials’ actions while also encouraging them to step up and do the right thing — repeal” the immigration law, said Beckham, a Republican state delegate from Orem.
