Holy Shit: Utah Edition

From FOXNews.com (via AP), “List of Alleged Illegal Immigrants Mailed in Utah”.

Choice Quote:

A list containing the names and personal information of 1,300 people whom an anonymous group contends are illegal immigrants has been mailed around Utah, terrifying the state’s Hispanic community.

Republican Gov. Gary Herbert wrote in a tweet Tuesday that he has asked state agencies to investigate the dissemination of the list — sent anonymously to several media outlets, and law enforcement and state agencies. A letter accompanying the list demands that those on it be deported immediately.

Most of the names on the list are of Hispanic origin. The list also contains highly detailed personal information such as Social Security numbers, birth dates, workplaces, addresses and phone numbers. Names of children are included, along with due dates of pregnant women on the list. […]

The letter included a long recipient list, including newspapers, broadcast outlets, The Associated Press, law enforcement and state agencies, various Utah officials, and the Department of Homeland Security. The letters began arriving in mailboxes in recent days.

Dave Lewis, communication director for the state Department of Workforce Services, said his agency didn’t receive a copy of the list from the governor’s office until late Tuesday.

“We’ve got some people in our technology department looking at it right now,” he said. “It’s a high priority. We want to figure out the how’s and why’s.”

Obviously the HOW is the really important issue here. As for the why, I think we all know why.

More from Color Lines, including the text of the two letters (minus the names, of course).
