Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Her­bert said two state work­ers were re­spon­si­ble for com­pil­ing and dis­tribut­ing a list of per­sonal in­for­ma­tion of 1,300 pur­ported il­le­gal im­mi­grants, and both would be fired. State of­fi­cials had been in­ves­ti­gat­ing as many as 10 em­ploy­ees for pos­si­ble in­volve­ment, but no­body else will face dis­ci­plinary ac­tion. Her­bert said that one of the im­pli­cated work­ers, whose names have not been re­leased, was a tem­po­rary em­ployee and al­ready has been fired and the other is ex­pected to be ter­mi­nated by to­day.
