Two Utah State Workers Lose Jobs for Creating List of Undocumented Immigrants

HeadlineJul 21, 2010

Two employees in the Utah Department of Workforce Services will lose their jobs for their role in creating and distributing a list containing personal information of about 1,300 purported undocumented immigrants. An anonymous group recently sent the list to law enforcement officials, state lawmakers and the media, demanding the immediate deportation of everyone listed. The list included names, addresses, workplaces, phone numbers, birth dates and, in some cases, Social Security numbers and even due dates of women. Only Latino names appeared on the list. One of the state employees has already been fired. The other was served with a notice of intent to terminate. Both employees could face criminal charges.
