Mayoral Candidates Have Opposing Views Of Secure Communities Program

DENVER (CBS4)- A controversial program has the two Denver mayoral candidates on opposite sides of a heated debate.

One group of Latino activists, the Colorado Latino Forum, is calling on Michael Hancock to limit Denver’s participation in the “Secure Communities” program. Chris Romer has already signed a pledge promising that if he is elected mayor, Denver would only report data about convicted felons to immigration authorities. space Mayoral Candidates Have Opposing Views Of Secure Communities Program

The federal program checks the fingerprints of all people arrested against a national database. It also checks their legal status and arrest record. Three counties in Colorado, including Denver, participate in the program.

A federal investigation is under way into how immigration authorities are using “Secure Communities” to identify and deport dangerous criminals who are illegal immigrants.

    Typical of Romer doing anything and everything he can to aid and abet illegal aliens. Romer should be mayor of Juarez.

    So HIspanic neighborhoods have to live with more criminals in their area? Doesn’t Romer realize the best thing he can do for their/our communities is to make it safe from criminals?

    Is he that removed reality?

  3. Number 6 says:

    Romer wants more voters for the Democratic Party. He doesn’t care one bit whether these new voters are criminals or not. He doesn’t care what their impact is on the neighborhoods they live in. It’s all about him and his party.
