A coalition of community organizations kicked off a campaign to close the detention center for undocumented immigrants that is operated by GEO Group in the state. “We will make sure the GEO detention center in Aurora takes responsibility for their abuse of our community,” said Lizbeth Chacón, executive director of Colorado People’s Aliance (COPA). These organizations have denounced numerous irregularities that have taken place in that center in the past few years.

The campaign also gathered complaints by detainees or their families, either mailed to COPA or those narrated in person to volunteers located near the entrance of the GEO detention center to talk to relatives of the detainees. “We will listen to those that have been directly impacted by this detention center and we will develop a strategy to be part of the struggle of those who are detained and their families,” explained Chacon. COPA’s strategy is aligned to that of congressmen Jason Crow y Joe Neguse.

Request for the Aurora Chamber of Commerce

Chacón explained that COPA will also request the Aurora Chamber of Commerce to break ties with GEO Group. “We will protest until the representative of GEO that serves on the board of the chamber is removed. He and GEO doesn’t represent the values of the city of Aurora,” said Chacón. The directors of COPA assured that congressmen Crow and Neguse and Aurora councilwoman Allison Hiltz will join their efforts.

In addition, Chacón announced that they will mobilize to pressure Bank of America to request to severe ties with companies that provide services to immigrant detention centers, state or federally administered. Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC), American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) have presented separate lawsuits against GEO Group, alleging violations of current laws.
