New York Times Editorial Praises the Utah Compact

In a 4 December editorial, The New York Times praised the Utah Compact, a document supported by groups and individuals who were concerned about the tone of Utah’s immigration discussion. The New York Times editorial states:

"Not all the political news this year involves the rise of partisan extremism and government by rage. There has been lots of that. But maybe there is a limit, a point when people of good sense and good will band together to say no. As they have just done in Utah."

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a news release in November supporting the Utah Compact.
