Long ago, pioneers came to a remote part of Mexico seeking freedom and opportunity. The country changed forever. It grew prosperous and earned its place in the United States . That place was Utah , and it’s our home.
Now, Jason Chaffetz wants to round up immigrant families and put them in tent cities surrounded by barbed wire - just for seeking the blessings we enjoy.
Intolerance is not a Utah value. I will fight to secure our borders without violating the principles we hold dear. I believe there is a solution.
Four points on illegal immigration that I will take to Congress:
1. Stop illegal immigrants at the border by properly funding security measures. America has a right to control its borders. In a post 9/11 world we must know who is entering our country.
2. Crack down on employers who hire undocumented workers.
3. Bring undocumented immigrants out of the shadows and put those who are in good standing on a pathway to citizenship so that they can contribute to society by paying their fair share of taxes.
4. Work with nations, like Mexico , to find a solution that will stem the flow of illegal immigrants on both sides of the border.
I need your help to make this a reality. Please go to my campaign Web site, www.bennionspencerforcongress.com, and make a contribution to my campaign.
All the best,
