DENVER, CO (KUNC) - Denver Public Schools is enforcing a ban on employee travel to Arizona, following that state's passage of a new law cracking down on illegal immigration. The school's superintendent is denying assertions that the move is politically motivated.

Is the state budget of Colorado doing so well that it's sending state employees on luxury business trips? Why are the taxpayers of Colorado having to provide these trips to Arizona in the first place? Shouldn't school employees be in Colorado working?

Banning travel is the EXACT opposite of what the schools should be doing...
They should be encouraging employees to witness in person the Government doing what is is supposed to be doing...Acting on the will of " We the people ", & protecting our country....
Looks like some political butt kissing going on here.....

I'd love to see az stand up for itself and welcome business and people from around the country to conduct business in their state where they respect the laws of this nation..

let Colorado and California deal with their own massive immigration increase's because of AZ doing the right thing!

I'd love to see the state of Arizona provide free transportation and a one way ticket to California and Colorada.

busloads going toward Denver filled with 40 thousand illegal Mexicans. Denver celebrates. Youtube videos cover the arrival of the busses, and opening of 3 new liquor stores ! Women in tacky fringed vests, and cowgirl hats welcome large families into their homes.
