30,000 DACA Recipients At Risk If Governor Polis Vetoes Bill HB23 1100

Immigrant rights groups are organizing to put public pressure on Governor Jared Polis to sign House Bill 1100. It would prohibit state and local governance from renewing or agreeing with ICE, the US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency to house people suspected of civil immigration violations.

The bill would also restrict state and local entities from selling government-owned property to establish a privately managed or owned immigrant detention facility. It would prohibit paying to construct one and ban local government entities from receiving payment from the private entity operating that type of facility.

KGNU’s Rossana Longo Better spoke with Ayah All-Durazi, a bilingual community organizer with Together Colorado. They talked about the consequences of the governor not signing house bill 1100, and how they’re expected to impact detention centers and immigrants.

To find out more about Taos Bill 1100, you can go to Together Colorado.org, for a longer version of this interview in Spanish, tune in this Sunday, June 4th at 4:00 PM to Pasa La Voz, KGNU’S Weekly Spanish Language Public Affairs program.
