Gov. Polis Statement on Reports of Raids

Thursday, July 11, 2019

DENVER - Following reports of President Trump’s plan to launch a series of raids across the country, including Denver, Gov. Jared Polis issued the following statement: 

“If true, these reports are of great concern and another failure of leadership by the Trump administration. Instead of working with Congress to find a real, comprehensive solution to our broken immigration system, the President is unfortunately focused on creating uncertainty and fear. These actions make our communities less safe and increase distrust of law enforcement. Colorado celebrates our immigrant communities, and we will not allow the public safety of Coloradans to be held hostage by the Trump administration.”
