Salt Lake City — At a bustling Latino market on Salt Lake’s west side, dusty workmen munch plates of carnitas at a lunch counter while shoppers scan the aisles for goodies like stewed chipotles or fresh tomatillos.
Behind the cash register, a Peruvian immigrant named Karin says she loves Utah. And even better, this state seems to love her back.
“My aunt told me you can get a (driver’s) license, you can go to university. That was a big reason I came,” said Karin, 25, who said she plans to take advantage of a law that allows illegal immigrants to get in-state tuition by studying nursing.
Shuffling through a pile of invoices nearby, Teresa Campos, the store manager, nods knowingly.
“I’ve lived in California. I’ve lived in Las Vegas. No place is like this,” Campos said. Here, “they don’t think just because we don’t have papers we aren’t human beings.”
Amid the country’s caustic immigration debate, Utah may be the closest thing these days to an immigrant paradise.
