                        PETITIONS AND MEMORIALS

  The following petitions and memorials were laid before the Senate and 
were referred or ordered to lie on the table as indicated:

       POM-165. A joint resolution adopted by the Legislature of 
     the State of Utah relative to issues relating to undocumented 
     individuals in the United States; to the Committee on the 
     Judiciary.

                          Joint Resolution 28

       Whereas, the Federal Immigration and Naturalization Service 
     has not addressed the issue of undocumented workers from 
     Mexico and Latin American nations;
       Whereas, this is an issue of great concern in the state of 
     Utah;
       Whereas, children born in the United States to undocumented 
     individuals are American-born citizens;
       Whereas, undocumented workers have been in the United 
     States for five years to 50 years without being deported by 
     the Federal Immigration and Naturalization Service;
       Whereas, some American citizens have married undocumented 
     individuals, and some undocumented workers have joined the 
     United States Armed Services;
       Whereas, many undocumented individuals have paid taxes; and
       Whereas, issues related to undocumented individuals raise 
     complex questions that need to be resolved on the national 
     level:
       Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Legislature of the 
     state of Utah strongly urge the United States Congress to 
     review and consider whether to permit parents of American-
     born children to become American citizens; whether to permit 
     undocumented individuals who have married American citizens 
     to become American citizens, whether to permit undocumented 
     individuals that have been in the United States for more than 
     five years to be given the opportunity to become an American 
     citizen, and whether to permit undocumented individuals who 
     have joined the United States Armed Services to become 
     American citizens.
       Be it further Resolved, That the Legislature strongly urges 
     the United States Congress to review and determine the 
     appropriate disposition of family and financial affairs in 
     cases where an undocumented parent purchases a home and is 
     then deported.
       Be it further Resolved, That the Legislature urges Utah's 
     congressional delegation to work with Congress in resolving 
     these issues and to provide guidance and support in the 
     resolution of these issues.
       Be it further Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be 
     sent to the President of the United States Senate, the 
     Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the

     Federal Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the 
     members of Utah's congressional delegation.
