Salt Lake City, UT – A group of immigration lawyers in Utah says it plans to sue to hold up the implementation of Utah's Senate Bill 81, a new immigration law set to go into effect July 1st. SB81 was copied from an Oklahoma law called 1804, which is also being challenged in the courts. KUER's Dan Bammes continues our series on Utah's immigration reform with a look at the Oklahoma experience.
