A hot issue….again…..this year: Immigration.
Today the "Don’t Let Utah Become Arizona!" rally was held on the steps of Utah’s State Capitol building. Created by a group on facebook called "No SB 1070 in Utah!" the rally was held in coordination with United for Social Justice (united4socialjustice.org) on the first day of Utah’s legislative session. The facebook event announced:
Don’t let Utah become Arizona!! Now is the time to stand up and fight back for immigrant rights.
Sandstrom and others in the state government want to pass laws attacking immigrants this spring.
Don’t let them break our families, churches, and friendships with raids, deportation, and fear.
Indeed this was the passionate message on those steps today.
