Cawley: people responsible for The List are ‘zealous patriots’

Utah Governor Gary Herbert says the release of a list of 1,300 purported illegal immigrants has hurt efforts to enact immigration reform. Hebert told those attending an immigrant summit on Tuesday that the anonymous mailing divided the community at a time it needs to come together.Eli Cawley, of the Utah Minuteman Project, calls those responsible for the list “zealous patriots.” On KVNU’s For the People program Tuesday, Cawley said the government is not enforcing the law and people have to look at the choices.”They had the choice between turning their eyes the other way,” Cawley said, “ignoring the depredations that were being inflicted by these illegal aliens on the list, ripping off the state, plundering our treasury, identity theft document fraud; or, on the other hand, invasion of privacy. “And not only that, their context in which their actions were taken, they were looking at the invasion.”Cawley claims America has been invaded by 40 million illegal aliens free to break the law with the full protection of those who should be enforcing the law.
