Denver Police will not participate in Trump’s immigration enforcement

Police in Denver and Aurora will not be changing their nonenforcement policies on immigration, both departments said Tuesday.

Officials from both departments issued statements on immigration enforcement after President-elect Donald Trump said he wants to deport 2 million to 3 million undocumented immigrants who have criminal records.

“Since the election, many questions have been raised about Aurora Police Department’s current non-enforcement policy on immigration. Specifically, people are asking if we intend to change our policy,” Chief Nick Metz said in a statement posted on Facebook. “The simple answer is: No.

Well, Denver I hope you aren't getting any Federal funding for anything. All the Federal Government would have to do is issue a Subpoena for every illegal that was know to be in the country illegally and then local law enforcement would be forced to hold these people. It would be obstruction if they didn't. It's going to happen. Wanna bet?

They take a clear vow to ENFORCE the law. If they can't do their job, they need to be fired.

I love how the media is trying to make this a huge story. This is no different then the past presidents. If an individual has an ICE hold then they will act, but if not then local LEO don't act. SMH

Watch out! I think these police are right, but watch out for the Trump administration creating a national police force to do what he tells them.

Laws are laws. Immigration laws are supposedly federal, but why is it ok for officers to pick which laws to enforce and which ones not to? Santenary states like Colorado will start losing federal funding because of refusing to enforce the law? I don't understand that logic.. Immigration laws are there for a reason, why do you think non of these celebrities have fled to Canada like they promised if trump was elected?? Because the immigration laws are too strict because Canada protect their country and their citizens. American needs to do the same. Immigrate here all you want, but do it legally and there wouldn't be this issue. Stop calling it racial bs too, but just because I say illegal immigrant doesn't mean you have to assume I'm talking about 1 race... Your assumption that I am just proves your ignorance.

These cities believe they are above the law. What they're going to find out is that more illegal felons will take refuge in their communities and cause havoc. Your children daughters and wives will be at risk. You should be ashamed and the blood will be on your hands.

Man alive, if anyone was gonna be pro bigot/tax dodging, whiner Trump, it would be law enforcement. Are we delusional??? Could it be that there is sanity in Denver? Maybe they feel outnumbered but I would prefer to remember that Trump didn't win that state, even with electoral votes. Viva Mi Gente!
