As the Trump administration’s war on “sanctuary cities” heats up, cities have come up with increasingly creative ways to fight back. The latest example comes from Denver, which just passed a law aimed at protecting legal immigrants from being deported for committing relatively petty crimes, those carrying maximum sentences of 365 days — the federal government’s tripwire for kicking people out.

The city’s solution? Simply take a bunch of those relatively petty offenses and reduce the maximum penalty to less than 365 days. Just like that, the move takes the crimes (and their perpetrators) off the radar of immigration authorities.

Time to tighten federal law harder against sanc cities.

Time to arrest and prosecute these politicians for breaking the law.

So happy I left Colorado.

Grew up there... beautiful scenery but it has changed and keeps changing for the worse.

This is despicable. It's like what happened in Boston recently. The green card holder who killed the 2 doctors was previously sentenced to 364 days in jail for robbing a bank. The liberal judge did that to keep him from being deported. Colorado is heading down a dangerous path.

Wait a minute...when Arizona tried to enforce illegal immigration laws the federal government/courts stepped in and stopped it cold, but now that Denver is changing the law to bypass the federal government ......

But tough on the pocket book. I do have compassion but mainly for poor Americans who can't find work because illegal aliens have under cut their livelihood.
