President Obama has taken the step in the right direction. Since Congress has not acted on the Dream Act it is the perfectly right time to make the move to make sure if SB 1070 is found in favor of the State of Arizona, the hard working immigrants will be protected. Jan Brewer, Sheriff Joe and Russell Pearce can take their racist stands in a highly-Hispanic populated state and they are all going to lose. The racist but supposedly religious politicians of our state who always want to preach “family values” want to break up families and send perfectly law-abiding kids educated in our schools that have parents paying taxes and contributing to our communities back to Mexico.
Maybe these racist-minded politicians need to hear the preachings from their own churches. The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Catholic church and the Utah State Legislature adopted the Utah compact, which has seven points to treat all law-abiding people equally, does not break up families, and does not question anyone about race if they are not breaking the law. Take your stand. Follow your religion’s beliefs or be a racist against children of God.
