(KSL News) Fifty-six Utahns are facing charges today for their alleged involvement in an immigration scam.

Prosecutors have filed misdemeanor charges against the citizens accusing them of filing immigration petitions that falsely stated an immigrant was their spouse or fiancé.

Authorities believe Vietnamese nationals were paying $30,000 to marry Utahns to get into the U.S.
