Arizona passed a controversial immigration law that sparked outrage in that community. But, in Utah legislators have taken an approach that combines support for undocumented immigrants while at the same time cracking down on enforcement. Two bills were passed in Utah's legislature, one creates a guest worker program for immigrants and another is similar to Arizona's controversial S.B. 1070 an would allow police to check the immigration status of suspected undocumented immigrants.
