Utah Considers Alternative Approach to Immigration Reform

Hosted by

Arizona law requires police officers to demand proof of citizenship from suspected illegal immigrants and to turn them over to federal authorities. Almost from the moment it took effect, it's been tied up in court. But group of conservatives endorsed by the Mormon Church says there's a better way. Paul Mero, who describes Arizona's "round 'em up approach," says, "There is no way in hell I will be part of rounding up innocent people." Mero, President of the Sutherland Institute, is leading fellow conservatives to push for adoption of the Utah Compact.
