Commission to Legislature: No immigration bills this year
Legislature » Panel created last year says lawmakers shouldn’t do anything on the touchy topic during the session.

Janalee Tobias is a resident of South Jordan and an anti-illegal immigration activist. She was appointed to the commission — except she said no one told her.
"I would’ve done anything to be there," Tobias said. "I would’ve walked if I had to."
She also would’ve opposed the recommendation, calling it a "chicken way to do things," noting the commission isn’t scheduled to meet again until April, well after the session is over.
"I’m going to find out how to be involved in these meetings," she said. "I’d like to have a chance to give my input."
