A list of personal information that included the names and addresses of children and pregnant women was sent to news media and law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Utah this week. Two state workers have been identified as being responsible for this horrendous breach of privacy.

Utah officials have identified at least two state workers who apparently breached a state database to create a list of 1,300 purported illegal immigrants. Gov. Gary Herbert's office said Friday that the employees work for the Department of Workforce Services, which administers food stamp programs and other public benefits.
News media, law enforcement and other government officials started receiving the list of names and personal information this week, creating widespread fear in the Hispanic community. The anonymous mailing demands that those on the list be deported, although some named have said they are in the country legally.
The list contains Social Security numbers, birth dates, workplaces, addresses and phone numbers. Names of children are included, along with due dates of pregnant women.
The governor's office has said it will give information about the breach to the state attorney general's office by Monday so it can decide whether to file charges. [here]

Now this is just frightening, especially if you are one of the individuals that has had their personal and private information reviewed by a couple of loons. Is this what the immigration scare has done to our country? Are there no limits to this illegal immigration madness?
Since these two workers accessed this information illegally, who else now has this information?
