Utah Lawmakers Seek Reimbursement for Immigrant Ed Costs

“Utah legislators frustrated by illegal immigration are finished being nice - they're sending a strongly worded letter to the feds.

Armed with a legislative audit estimating the cost of educating undocumented immigrants, members of the Education Interim Committee voted Wednesday to send the audit to Utah's congressional delegation and the U.S. departments of Immigration and Education… The audit, which was released in May, estimated Utah spends between $63 million and $98 million educating undocumented immigrants.,” reports the Deseret Morning News.
