Pitkin County’s Stance

Share This:

Pitkin County is formalizing their stance on immigration. They want to send a message to the immigrant community that they are welcome and valued. County employees will not ask about someone’s immigration status unless necessary. They will not provide ICE or CBP “non-public information” about a person. This is great to hear local authorities standing with the immigrant community. You can read more about this in the Post Independent online here  or in the newspaper.

ICE update

Share This:

At a public meeting in El Paso Wednesday, the head of ICE for Colorado confirmed there are no checkpoints or sweeps for enforcement, and there is NO plan to implement either. ICE reaffirmed it will not arrest anyone at sensitive locations such as schools and churches. Every arrest is for a targeted person – someone with aggravated felonies, sex offenders, recent DUIs, and national security.

TO REPORT RECENT ICE ACTIVITY OR POLICE/ICE COLLABORATION, PLEASE CALL CIRC’s HOTLINE at 844-864-8341. Leave a message with your name, city/town where you live, phone number, and brief summary of the story. Someone will be in touch with you within 5 business days. CIRC DOES NOT HAVE ATTORNEYS ON THE HOTLINE AND CANNOT PROVIDE LEGAL ADVICE.

TU VOZ ES EL PODER, COLORADO TE ESCUCHA (Your Voice is Power, Colorado is Listening) is a project to collect stories of recent police/ICE collaborations and ICE activities in order to monitor what ICE is doing, see how new policies are impacting communities & their trust in the police, and gather evidence to support long term policy changes that further limit collaboration between local law enforcement and ICE.

CIRC’s ICE incident hotline – 844-864-8341 – is coordinated by a statewide network of volunteers trained to document testimonies of ICE/police interactions and to support individuals to navigate and fight their own deportation cases. If you would like to become a documenter, please contact Sophia Clark at sophia@coloradoimmigrant.org.
