GOP’s hard-line immigration stance concerns some Utah delegates
Politics » Republicans’ tough immigration stance worries Utah delegates like A.G. Mark Shurtleff, who says it harms the party and “hurts Mitt Romney.”

It wasn’t a full endorsement but instead directed the party to "consider, in light of both current needs and historic practice, the utility of a legal and reliable source of foreign labor through a new guest-worker program."
Shurtleff said the party needs to move more toward Bailey and away from Kobach — especially if Romney is to capture the White House in November.
"We have a big tent. There’s room for those guys — but you don’t want them part of Romeny’s team," he said. "The action challenging childhood arrivals or the plank put in denying in-state tuition I think hurts us. It hurts Mitt Romney, and I want Mitt to win."
