This story in the Salt Lake Tribune says a Latino activist group is urging President Monson to clarify the Church’s position on illegal immigration.
Here are the key paragraphs of comments by activist Tony Yapias:
Yapias has applauded other faith leaders, including Bishop John C. Wester, leader of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City, for speaking out against Arizona’s new law and pressing for comprehensive immigration reform. But the Latino activist wants the state’s predominant religion to take a stand.
“Why is it,” Yapias asks, “that the LDS Church can’t say what many other churches have said already?”
