Illegal Immigration and House Bill 109 Stir Up Controversy
Feb. 26, 2004
Carole Mikita Reporting
Controversy on Capitol Hill as both the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints and the Mexican consulate make it clear they don't like the way a
bill about illegal immigration is being handled.
It was unusual, but not unclear -- the Church issued a public statement that
it doesn't want to be part of the debate over a bill the Mexican government
says is blatant discrimination.
The issue has become very heated and it's very complicated, involving a bill
in the legislature, an immigration reform group, Mexican I.D. cards and
apparently temple recommends.
Joe Reyna, Advisor, Institute of Mexicans Abroad: "The group, Utahns for

Arturo Chavarria Balleza, Consul of Mexico: "We want to be sure that people
who obtain a metricula consular is really Mexican national, and we are sure
about his identity."
As for the church's concern, apparently immigration reform members pushing
for this bill are quoting church tenets about obeying laws and suggesting
immigrants shouldn't obtain temple recommends -- or permission to enter a
temple -- without legal documentation.
