We live in a nation of immigrants. Colorado is stronger because of the generations of immigrants who have contributed to its well-being. Our state’s law-abiding residents, young and old, must be protected.
I will stand with Attorneys General across the country who have opposed Trump Administration policies that promote discrimination and compromise our future. I will resist efforts to bar travelers from other countries for improper reasons, such as the Trump Administration Muslim ban.
I will also press for the Trump Administration to maintain the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) as it operated under the Obama Administration. This important program has kept families together and ensures that children raised in America have a chance to pursue their education and contribute to our economy. These young people deserve to be protected from the threats of deportation from the state in which they were raised.
