Colorado Officials Pledge to Repeal Controversial Immigration Reporting Law

Colorado moved closer Monday to repealing a controversial law that requires local police to determine the status of immigrants and report undocumented people to federal authorities, the Denver Post reports.

A state House committee voted 9-2 to repeal the six-year-old law, SB 90, that state officials said has cost taxpayers $13 million a year and eroded public trust, the Post wrote.

“SB 90 needs to go away,” testified Greenwood Village Police Chief John Jackson, who was representing the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police. “It is outdated and ineffective.”

Some groups said the law also discourages immigrants from reporting crimes.

“Because they are brown, they feel like they can’t report crimes,” John “Eddie” Soto with the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition told the committee.
