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

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.
