SLC Chamber of Commerce, Mormon and Catholic Churches: honor Veterans Day by calling for Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
Rather than celebrating Veteran's Day and honoring the men and women who have served their nation, advocates for illegal aliens use Veteran's Day to push their amnesty agenda.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of November in 2010, community, business, political, and religious leaders who place the interests of illegal aliens ahead of those of the United States used Veterans Day to launch the so-called Utah Compact.
The Utah Compact was developed specifically to push the amnesty agenda although it never mentions illegal immigration. The Compact was carefully crafted to give the impression that those signing it are simply stating their support for "immigration." However, the authors of the document and the primary signers strongly support amnesty for all illegal aliens.
As former Arizona State Sen. Karen Johnson wrote: "Pretending that the 'Utah Solution' was something new, unique, and more compassionate than previous attempts at immigration reform, they put it in a pretty new package, slapped a brand-new label on it, and took it on tour, trying to foist it off on other states and Congress. But despite the new packaging, it's still all about amnesty. And the vaunted diversity of the Utah Compact is a sham."
So the Chamber of Commerce, or at least the Salt Lake City one doesn't believe that veterans should be honored on November the 11th? Um, really?
Sure, why not encourage the Chamber of Commerce to piggy-back on other days. For instance, Christmas Day: should could also be "Stop the use of pesticides" day.
