SALT LAKE CITY -- Two Utah state lawmakers backing bills that would fight illegal immigration say they've received possible death threats.
Republican Rep. Stephen Sandstrom of Orem says the Utah Highway Patrol is investigating an e-mail sent Sunday that includes references to assassination and violent revolution.
It includes images of Che Guevara and an AK-47 and decries the "racist" state of Utah.
Sandstrom is the sponsor of an Arizona-style immigration enforcement law. He says his car has been vandalized twice in the past week.
Republican Rep. Chris Herrod of Provo says he also received the e-mail. Herrod is sponsoring a bill that would punish employers who hire illegal immigrants.
The e-mail says it's from a group called the United Front for Defense of Immigrants.
The sender didn't immediately respond to an e-mail from The Associated Press.
