Love for ILLEGALS and NOT for American Citizens-Colorado Repeals Law That Required Police to Report Illegals to Federal Authorities

Colorado Repeals Law That Required Police to Report Illegals to Federal Authorities

On Friday, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D) signed a bill that repeals the 2006 law, SB06-90 . The bill required police to alert federal authorities about suspected illegals living in the US. The bi-partisan supporters of the repeal said the law made immigrants afraid of law enforcement.

Those who wanted the law repealed argued it made immigrants afraid of police. They also say the law is now duplicative because a federal program checks fingerprints during arrests to check immigration status.Proponents of such laws say that the federal government has failed to control illegal immigration, forcing states to take matters into their hands. The U.S. government has tried to fight such laws, and argues that immigration is a federal issue.Colorado’s law, known as SB-90, required police to report people they arrested and they suspected to be undocumented to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“As immigrants become more and more involved in our civic life, they are having a greater impact on elections and legislation and they are voting for politicians that support issues that are important to them,” said Miriam Peña, executive director with the Colorado Progressive Coalition. “This bipartisan vote on the Trust Act tells me the growing influence of Latino and Asian immigrants is changing the political dynamic in Colorado.”

On Wednesday, the Colorado state Senate approved a bill allowing illegals to obtain drivers licenses. If passed, Colorado will be the 5th state to give illegals driving privileges.

Don't you just love how our country, well so many anyway, want to leave off the word ILLEGAL when they are pushing things to favor those that enter illegally. Screw them!

Colorado already approved a law that lowers tuition rates for illegals.

I'm beginning to seriously wonder why even be an American Citizen? Illegals can get better benefits from the government that its citizens who paid into the system all their lives. I just went through this with my elderly mother who lived on $1100 monthly social security. She paid all her bills and utilities out of this money. She also qualified for a whopping $15 per month in food stamps. This woman worked and paid into the system since she was 17 up into her 60's and all she got was $15 per month. A freaking person who comes into this country illegally can get much more along with housing assistance and medical coverage while our seniors struggle to survive.

Colorado used to be such a great state. Beautiful and captivating. Now it is rapidly turning into a socialist paradise. Red staters began moving in several decades ago and brought their failed leftist programs with them.

...these traitors sound like Eric "Dick" Holder or *THE*RULER* himself . To them, we are all "colonialists" who became successful at the expense of the Third-Worlders" so we owe them. We are destined to become the dumping ground for the problems not only of countries south of us but in the Middle East as well. And these invaders will not need to accept our way of life-we will have to accept theirs. To bad Colorado is in the middle of the lower 48 or we could throw them of of the union...
