OUR STTE JOINED THE ACTION PURSUED BY ANOTHER 15 STATES

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

The Colorado Attorney General joined efforts with attorney generals of another fifteen states and the District of Columbia against Trump’s decision to rescind DACA. The case, said Attorney General Phil Weiser, serves a double purpose of challenging the actions to dismantle DACA and to ensure justice and opportunity” for the more than 700.000 undocumented young adults protected by it.

Weiser’s predecessor, Cynthia Coffman, refused to join this legal action under the belief that it should be resolved in Congress. However, former governor John Hickenlooper joined the legal action shortly after, by using an external counsel. It is now Weiser who will represent Colorado on the law suit. So far, diverse judicial actions “have successfully protected the DREAMers”, said Weiser, referring to the court rulings by several judges to keep DACA valid.

“Our nation is stronger because of our welcoming attitude toward immigrants who come here to share their talents, work hard, and benefit from our freedoms and economic opportunity,” said the attorney, who is also the child of an immigrant mother. For the past seven years, DACA has protected about 700 thousand people throughout the country. There are 17 thousand DACA beneficiaries in Colorado. According to Weiser, eliminating DACA “threatens the well-being and livelihood of the dreamers.” 

Public Charge

Weiser also announced that he is joining another seventeen states and the District of Columbia to support a legal action by the City of Baltimore against changes the Trump administration is making to the rules of public charge. These changes seek to reduce legal immigration by redefining the criteria of admissibility in the United States and for the obtention of immigration adjustment of status for permanent residents. According to Weiser, “these changes would have the effect of making our communities less safe and healthy.”

In October, the Department of State made changes that penalize immigrants and their families for having benefited from public services such as reduced lunch and free vaccines. These changes have caused uncertainty amongst immigrants, leaving some children without access to reduced cost and free school lunches. “The changes undermine our responsibility as a state to ensure the safety and well-being of our people through the public health system of Colorado,” said Weiser.
