November 24th, 2006 @ 6:10pm

(KSL News) -- A new Dan Jones poll for KSL-TV shows Utahns hold to strict positions on illegal immigration.

91% of Utahns polled say Utah lawmakers should enact more restrictive measures - such as requiring employers to verify an employee's legal status.

A slim majority of Utahns support keeping a law that allows undocumented college students to pay in-state tuition if they attend high school in the state. 40% would like the law repealed.

You'll find more analysis of the poll, and what it could mean for the upcoming legislative session, in today's Deseret Morning News.
