The City of Denver in Colorado has sent a CLEAR message to the Federal Government.

The City Council has unanimously approved a new "ordinance" that for all "practical" purposes, bans city officials from "asking" somebody's immigration status.

A few exceptions maybe, but it slaps the face of Federal efforts to enforce immigration laws.

Now the question should be:

What IF "they" don't find any genuine American issued ID in possession of a "suspect" ?

Lots of localized resistance to Federal laws.

Denver City Council passes controversial immigration protections


The Denver City Council unanimously passed an ordinance Monday limiting how the city works with federal immigration officials.

The Denver Public Safety Enforcement Priorities Act passed, 10-0, and bans city officials from asking an arrested individual's immigration status.

The city also will ignore U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests and ban ICE from conducting in-person jail interviews without a warrant.

Well this is to protect American Citizens, who don't happen to have Government issued ID on them, from being treated like undocumented immigrants in other states like Arizona.

Yay!
So when do we get to pick and choose which laws we will follow?

Denver just chose to ignore federal immigration law.
What happens when a city chooses to ignore abortion law?
Or how about equal employment law?

Follow the rules or get them changed.

Why? The city hasn't banned state or federal officials for asking about immigration status? It's not city a employee's job to enforce federal regulations and laws.

What law requires city employees to ask an individual about their immigration status?

Let's play by their rules.

ACA Sanctuary cities.

Gun control FREE sanctuary cities.

Antifa/blm FREE sanctuary cities.

Another clear and obvious attempt at subverting the rule of law in this country...by elected officials to boot.
They should be ousted from office and arrested immediately.
If you use their convoluted thinking, no one should have to follow any laws.

That's because a law like that would be illegal.

What do you call ignoring ICE detainer requests?



The city also will ignore U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests and ban ICE from conducting in-person jail interviews without a warrant.

It's called a request for ID by law enforcement, who are city employees.
If you are an illegal immigrant, you cannot produce any valid ID and by design the next question would be - "are you here illegally?"
Just stop with your support of these criminals....It's against the LAW!!!

But "sanctuary" policies place a greater emphasis on the interests and welfare of criminal aliens than citizens and legal residents.

Pretty much any type of service preformed by city employees would require a photo ID and proof of residency.
Zoning permits.
Building permits.
Utility hookups.
Business licenses.
Any welfare program.

I have to prove residency to get an Indiana drivers license. That's state though.

What do you call ignoring ICE detainer requests?


An ICE detainer request is not an equivalent to requiring city employees to determine an individual's immigration status. that status has already been determined within the ICE detainer.



It's called a request for ID by law enforcement, who are city employees.


Again, a lawful police stop and request of a vehicle operated for ID is not the same as requiring city employees to determine immigration status.

There is no law that requires city employees to ask for or determine immigration status.

Proof of residency, like a lease or a utility bill, is not the same as a requirement to ascertain an individual's immigration status. If a person doesn't have adequate identification they don't get the service, like trash pick up and water, not a visit from local police.

Welfare programs are run by state and federal programs, not city employees.

Ah, the wonderful domino effect.

Any person without proper documentation, "birth cert, work visa, etc" cannot get a drivers license or photo ID.

City workers asking for the ID just verified immigration statue.
The only way workers cannot do that is by not asking for identification.
