Civil Rights Groups Challenge Utah Immigration Law

Civil Rights Groups Challenge Utah Immigration Law

Published by FindLaw
The ACLU and several other civil rights groups have filed a lawsuit to block enforcement of Utah's new comprehensive immigration law on the grounds that the new law is unconstitutional. The Utah law, among other things, requires law enforcement officers to verify the citizenship of individuals they interact with. The plaintiffs claim that the new law will subject minority groups in the state to racial profiling.

PRELIMINARY STATEMENT
1.
 
This action challenges Utah’s immigration enforcement law, HouseBill (“HB”) 497. HB 497 was enacted by the State of Utah along with two other immigration laws—HB 469 and HB 116—to create a comprehensive system of immigration regulation. This Utah scheme includes: (1) a punitive immigrationenforcement system requiring state and local law enforcement officers to verify theimmigration or citizenship status of individuals they encounter in numerouscircumstances, to detain those deemed by Utah law enforcement officers to beunlawfully present in the United States, to arrest individuals on immigration-related grounds that differ from federal standards, and to enforce Utah-specificcriminal immigration laws (HB 497); (2) a state scheme to admit non-citizens fromoutside the United States to live, work, or study in Utah (HB 469); and (3) a state program to provide state
 
work authorization for non-citizens without federalemployment authorization (HB 116).2.
 
The laws were signed by Governor Gary Herbert on March 15, 2011,and HB 497 is scheduled to take effect on May 10, 2011, long before the other laws are to have any effect.3.
 
If allowed to take effect, HB 497 will significantly harm Utahans, particularly Utahans of color. According to law enforcement officials in Utah andelsewhere, HB 497 will cause widespread racial profiling and will subject many persons of color—including countless U.S. citizens and non-citizens who havefederal permission to remain in the United States—to unlawful interrogations,searches, seizures, and arrests. People of color in the state will be compelled tocarry additional paperwork on them at all times in order to prove to law
