LAWS FROM 2006 ARE NOW REPEALED

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Hispanic members of the Colorado Legislative Assembly met to celebrate a group of laws that protect the rights of immigrants. HB19-1124, by Representative Adrienne Benavidez and Senator Julie Gonzalez, both Democrats, made it clear that the State constitution doesn’t allow local police forces to enforce federal laws.

Therefore, HB19-1124 “prevents law enforcement officials to detain an individual based on a civil immigration detention or ‘ICE Hold’.” Also, sheriffs and police officers are only able to cooperate with ICE “if there is a warrant for arrest issued by a judge or federal judge.” This law benefits the immigrant community since it has state-wide reach, and not only specific counties.

The new law specifies that police officers can’t arrest anyone based on a civil immigration detention or “ICE Hold”. So far, Teller is the only of all 64 counties in Colorado who is cooperating with ICE. This cooperation is based on local laws that were approved in 2006, an that are now repealed. According the to the new law, immigrants must receive legal advice while on detention.

More offices will issue special licenses

Legislators also showed their joy after Jared Polis signed into law bill SB19-139, also known as “More Colorado Road and Community Safety Act Offices” bill. This law authorizes the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) in rural areas to issue Driver’s Licenses for individuals without immigration status. These offices will begin to issue those licenses on January 2020.

This bill, promoted by Senator Dominick Moreno and Representative Jonathan Singer, also democrats, restores the law they proposed in 2013 to its original version. At that time, a Budget Joint Committee had limited the funding for this law and only a very limited number of offices were able to issue these licenses.

Remedying Improper Guilty Pleas

Another law that benefits immigrants is the SB 19-030, that was promoted by Senator Julie González. This new legislation establishes a procedure for undocumented citizens or those immigrants who are not American citizens yet, to be able to withdraw a guilty plea. It is assumed that such plea was initially produced by violating the constitutional rights of these individuals They were not informed about the adverse consequences that declaration has on their intentions to obtain an immigration status.
