The Utah State Legislature is expected to pass a bill similar to Arizona's SB 1070 today.

State Rep. Steven Sandstrom introduced the bill with a goal of targeting criminal elements of illegal immigration in Utah. He claims 80 percent of Utah residents support the bill.

Opponents of the measure are calling it racist.
