74. Actually, the Mormons like having illegal immigrants
The businessmen there hire their sons to do the cushy stuff at relatively high wages, and they get illegal immigrants to do the scut work for subminimum wage. I spent six months in Utah in 2005, and their driver license/ID program is a joke.

Believe me, if the Mormons wanted the illegal immigrants out, they'd have expelled them all by now.
