Latinos Hold Lobby Day At Colorado Capitol

DENVER (AP) – Latinos are making their case to Colorado legislators.

Hundreds of Latinos gathered for this year’s “Latina/o Advocacy Day,” which included a rally Monday at the state Capitol to call attention to proposed state budget cuts and how they would hurt the Latino community.

Afterward, participants met their legislators, sat in on committee hearings and discussed issues important to the Latino community.

Republicans in the Legislature have proposed immigration crackdowns, while Democrats in the Senate have talked about making it easier for residents who are illegal immigrants to go to state colleges and universities at in-state rates.

    Cuts hurt everyone, not just hickenloopers precious ones. These type of rallys are devisive and if another race held one there would be screaching in the hispanic community. I am sick of this group and their constant demands and the negative impact on this country.
