As the leading men and women of Utah continue to boast about the illegal compact they have made with illegal immigrants, the LDS Church has issued the following statement:
"As a worldwide church dealing with many complex issues across the globe, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints promotes broad, foundational principles that have worldwide application. The church regards the declaration of the Utah Compact as a responsible approach to the urgent challenge of immigration reform. It is consistent with important principles for which we stand:
Many complain that the Utah Compact with Illegal Aliens, however, contradicts the LDS Church's Articles of Faith. These are considered scripture and appear in the Doctrine and Covenants of the Church.
12. We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law. (Source)
Currently the law states that Illegal Immigration is a Federal Crime.
Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:
* Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place
other than as designated by immigration officers; or
* Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or
* Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a
willfully false or misleading representation or the willful
concealment of a material fact;
has committed a federal crime.
A Serious one at that:
Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.
In other words, critics respond, the Church is obligated to sustain the laws of the land. This currently means supporting laws that make Illegal Immigration a crime. These same critics argue that the Utah Compact goes against the laws of the land and cannot legally receive a positive endorsement from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, according to its own doctrines and statutes.
Furthermore, these same critics charge that the LDS Church is interfering with the Lawmaking process by trying to dissuade the Utah State Legislature to not pass a bill similar to the one in Arizona. Such a law would give Utah law enforcement broader powers to deal with the escalating problem of illegal immigrants in the state. Aiding and abetting someone in the commission of a felony is also considered a felony. As is interfering with law enforcement trying to enforce the law. The LDS Statement continues:
"We follow Jesus Christ by loving our neighbors. The Savior taught that the meaning of 'neighbor' includes all of God's children, in all places, at all times.
"We recognize an ever-present need to strengthen families. Families are meant to be together. Forced separation of working parents from their children weakens families and damages society.
Again, Critics argue that non-enforcement of the Laws of the Land jeopardize the lives of Utah citizens that have a legal right to provide for their families without the unjust burden of cheap illegal immigrant labor. Those same Utah families have a right to not be separated from loved ones as a result of violent crimes (like the one pictured above) committed by illegal aliens. The Official Statement continues:
"We acknowledge that every nation has the right to enforce its laws and secure its borders. All persons subject to a nation's laws are accountable for their acts in relation to them.
"Public officials should create and administer laws that reflect the best of our aspirations as a just and caring society. Such laws will properly balance love for neighbors, family cohesion, and the observance of just and enforceable laws."
Critics believe that Non-enforcement of Federal Statutes that protect the citizens of this country is also a crime. The Utah Compact was designed to stop the Utah Legislature from passing laws to protect the citizens of Utah from greedy corporations, like the Marriotts, from profitting from illegal immigration.
Once again, critics believe that the Mormon Church is being heavily influenced by the likes of the Marriott family and the Romney Presidential campaign. Wealthy Illuminati Mormons that place their desires for a one-world Fascist dictatorship, above the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
As these individuals continue to push their agenda, the rift between Liberty-loving, Patriotic Mormons and those with Satanic-Globalist loyalties will only continue to grow. This script, by the way, is right out of the Book of Mormon.
