Most of the time I hate being associated with the state I live in. I was born and raised in Utah, but I dislike the social atmosphere that persists here. Imagine my surprise, however, when I heard about the Utah Compact. The Utah Compact it a set of principles set up by religious, political, and business leaders here in Utah to attempt to deal realistically with illegal immigration. The principles are as follows,
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
