Is everyone welcome in Utah? SB 81 starts July 1st
It’s sad to see how a state that once seemed very welcoming and kind could turn to become a place where people are just afraid to live or even visit. That’s what I’m afraid could happen with the great state of Utah.
Starting July 1st, a new immigration law will come into effect; SB 81 passed last year during the 2008 Utah State Legislation and among other factors, it will deny government funded programs to illegal immigrants such as health care.
Isn’t this too bad? And I do mean TERRIBLE! They’re people that law makers are rejecting here; babies, children, expecting mothers, physically challenged, hard workers, etc. The health system is expensive as it is in America and for immigrants, who usually fall into the low/middle class, will be even harder to get. I guess the hate towards the undocumented has gotten to the point where the government, at least as it seems in Utah, just wants them to die. Harsh words I know, but what else can I feel?
Hopefully President Obama can start the discussions over an immigration reform and also follow up on the health summit he hosted in the White house a few weeks ago. He needs to stop laws like this one in Utah that just damage and segregates people!
