SALT LAKE CITY ‚ÄĒ The Utah House has approved an Arizona-style immigration enforcement law after heated debate.
Republican Rep. Stephen Sandstrom of Orem says House Bill 70 will discourage illegal immigrants from coming to Utah and reduce crime.
The bill passed on a 58-15 vote after more than an hour of debate Friday. It now goes to the Senate.
