Good Utahns everyone should consider the validity of this action, and if it is acceptable.
The legislature almost unanimously voted to allow non citizens to be police, enforcing our laws, in Utah.
The highlighted words above show the deleting of the requirement to be a citizen of the United States to serve as law enforcement in Utah
The bill S.B. 102 Peace Officer Training Qualifications Amendments deletes the requirement to be a US citizen to have a job as law enforcement in the state of Utah.
Should *anyone at all* be a police officer, charged with protecting rights, who doesn’t have a foundation in what those rights are?
Police training does not offer an education in the constitutional rights of citizens.
How can law enforcement officers swear their constitutionally required oath to protect the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic when they’re not even US Citizens?
This bill has already passed and is now on its way to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law.
CALL TO ACTION:
Call the governor’s office to demand he veto this insanity before he signs it into law.
