Immigration took center stage again Thursday in the final English-language debate between Republican Rep. Mike Coffman and his Democratic challenger, Andrew Romanoff.
Mike Coffman spent his childhood in Aurora, but the city he now represents as part of Colorado’s 6th congressional district has changed so dramatically that Coffman himself has shifted his focus.
In a bit of political reinvention, Andrew Romanoff moved to Colorado’s 6th U.S. House district to challenge for its congressional seat. But, in a sense, the district has also revamped itself.
Sen. Mark Udall and Rep. Cory Gardner skirmished over their visions for Colorado’s economy during a prickly debate on Tuesday that featured aggressive attacks from both candidates.
Immigration judges in Denver will hear hundreds of cases via closed-circuit TV, the federal government has determined.
Only about half of Colorado immigrants trying to get driver’s licenses or identification cards regardless of their legal status have managed to get documents during the first two weeks of a new law.
More than 800 illegal immigrants obtained driver’s licenses on Friday, the first day they could receive them under a new state law.
Immigration experts reacted on Sunday to Denver’s plan to possibly shelter and care for migrant children who have entered the country illegally by the tens of thousands since the fall.
Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, praised the “poise and grace” of the children entering the United States across the Mexico border, just as Denver is considering seeking federal grants to care for them.
Rep. Cory Gardner of Colorado said Thursday he supports granting citizenship to people who enter the country illegally and serve in the U.S. military.
