Lawmaker again pushing Utah Compact resolution

Lawmaker again pushing Utah Compact resolution

< Previous Page

The Utah Compact has been signed by more than 5,000 people and has spawned copycat compacts in states such as Iowa, Maine, Indiana and, most recently, in Colorado.

Hemingway said a lot has changed in the last two years nationally and within Utah on immigration and he feels his resolution has a better chance this time around. He noted several Compact foes aren’t in the Legislature this session and he said there isn’t a request from the Utah Coalition on Immigration and Migration to put the brakes on immigration bills, as there was in 2012.

"What I do know is those guys are gone and that was one of the things that kind of made up my mind to do this again," Hemingway said. "It seems to me the caucus system this year was a little different than in the past and there’s hope on my part now that some of those [hard-liner] elements are gone."
