Utah House Speaker Unloads on State's Congressional Delegation for Ignoring Immigration Reform

Rate this Entry

Wow, good for Becky Lockhart, the Republican Speaker of Utah's House of Representatives for calling the state's members of Congress for making the state legislature do the heavy lifting and then not giving cover. She's pretty harsh and pretty specific in her criticism:



"Our federal delegation has watched the Legislature do the heavy lifting to get immigration reform off the ground, while their political will atrophies in the airless echo chamber of Washington, D.C.," Lockhart wrote in a commentary piece published Friday in Provo's Daily Herald. "We bleed in the trenches while they wallow in the temporary glory of meaningless blood-boiling rhetoric."


When the Legislature asks them for support on the immigration issue, Lockhart wrote, "They run for cover wherever they can find it or throw rocks at those trying to make a difference."



Read the article in the Salt Lake Tribune to see what she has to say about each member of the congressional delegation as well as the lame responses those members are offering in response to tough words from one of their own.

    LDS and its members diverge for one reason...the church wants more members while the white members who belong to the GOP dont want people of different hues in their church...check out this story....

    Sorry to say many mormons like many so-called Christians worship white skin instead of dealing with sin! Paganism and idolatory are rampant in America!
