Someone had to take a mature stand on the immigration issue to bring a responsible National dialogue on the issue... it's very uncommon for me to ever give kudos to the Mormon (LDS) Church, but the attitude change and sense of normalcy is a ray of light from the usual radical stances. "Paul Mero, president of the conservative Sutherland Institute... with LDS Church support for immigration reform, Mero said, 'We’ve had a 180[-degree] turn in this state. Culturally, more and more folks understand how reasonable comprehensive reform is compared to enforcement only.' Sen. Stuart Reid, R-Ogden, echoed that sentiment." Now if only Arizona will see the light, it could spread nationally. (7 of 6)
