State workers brave the illegal governments policies and are looking at potential CRIMINAL charges for reporting illegals to state officials.
What kind of country is this?
What about ILLEGAL don’t they understand?
If I call the cops about an armed robbery, then I should be thanked not “criminally charged “
What kind of CRIMINAL charges?
This is a government AGAINST the PEOPLE, and not FOR the People.

The government should be the ones charged with violations of the peoples trust.
The people who snitched should be thanked. They didn’t give these names to the public, they gave them to government officials. Why would that be illegal. Anyway. The people would not have done anything “illegal” if the illegal aliens did not take the FIRST step in doing something illegal.
How is that a crime? When the crime was FIRST committed BY the illegal alien?
Gary Herbert (Bill Brussard, ABC 4 News)---Herbert called the action of the people who generated and sent the list "deplorable" and "unfortunate." He also said that the small rogue group's actions were "probably born out of frustration."
State Workers Who Outed Illegal Immigrants Face Criminal Charges:
The Utah state employees suspected of outing more than 1,000 illegal immigrants living in the state have been placed on administrative leave and will likely be criminally charged.
Last week a list of 1,300 suspected illegal aliens was circulated anonymously to various state and federal agencies as well as media outlets. Accompanied by a letter from “Concerned Citizens of the United States,” the 29-page list includes the illegal aliens’ phone numbers, addresses and birth dates. The letter claims that the group “observes these individuals in our neighborhoods, driving on our streets, working in our stores, attending our schools and entering our public welfare buildings.”
Calling it the “deplorable” work of a “small rogue group,” Utah Governor Gary Herbert quickly launched an investigation and vowed to punish any public employees responsible for participating in the outing. So far two employees with the Utah Department of Workforce Services have been suspended and at least eight others are under investigation. All face criminal charges for violating state and federal privacy laws, according to the governor.
Utah has long protected illegal immigrants and provided them with endless public benefits, including discounted tuition at public colleges and universities as well as other perks not afforded under federal law. Two of the state’s largest cities—Salt Lake City and Provo—have official sanctuary policies that forbid public employees or law enforcement officers from inquiring about a resident’s immigration status.
Earlier this year Utah proudly became the nation’s first state to offer a special class of driver’s licenses for illegal aliens who won’t be ineligible to obtain the cards when new federal security standards kick in. For years, Utah was one of only a handful of states to offer illegal immigrants driver’s license.

Two Utah state workers stole private government information to help a citizen’s group compile a list of 1,300 alleged illegal immigrants which it sent to state officials this week, investigators said Friday.
The Department of Workforce Services administers food stamps.
“They have very strong leads, first to indicate that it came from that agency and now it’s just a process of drilling into the information a little deeper,” Angie Welling, a spokeswoman for Gov. Gary Herbert, told KSTU-TV in Utah about the investigation.
Also included on the list are the names of 200 children and the due dates of six pregnant women.
Most of the 1,300 names listed are of Hispanic origin.
The April letter to ICE was signed “Concerned Citizens of the United States.”
“The fact that a third party is using this information to target children and pregnant women is extremely troubling,” he said.
The governor’s office says it will send its findings to the state’s Attorney General by Monday.
“When people do business with the state of Utah of any kind, they deserve to know that the information they provided is protected, that’s the first issue – then immigration is the second issue,” Welling said.
The list comes as Arizona‘s controversial new anti-illegal immigration law goes into effect July 29. The law gives police the right to question a suspect’s immigration status if they have “reasonable suspicion” the person entered the U.S. illegally.
Critics say the law will lead to racial profiling, while backers welcome Arizona’s tough stance, saying the federal government’s immigration system is broken.
The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Arizona, saying immigration enforcement is a federal responsibility.
But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of DISCERNMENT trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
