Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio Another bill in the legislature is targeting illegal immigration.

Under House Bill 437, life might be difficult for the undocumented.

Rep. Chris Herrod, Provo: "The main part of the bill is taking away any benefits that illegal aliens have from the state."

But Rep. Chris Herrod of Provo says he's not against immigration.

Rather Herrod says he's enforcing the rule of law and being fair to those who have followed the rules. But Hispanic Community leader Tony Yapias says he wants to see proof the undocumented are a strain.

Tony Yapias, Hispanic Community Leader: "It is important to have a comprehensive study on the economic impact of the undocumented population."

The bill could be considered by committee next week.
