Proposed Colorado immigration law killed

February 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

Colorado lawmaker Republican Rep. Randy Baumgardner, main sponsor of the an Arizona-style bill on illegal immigration, will back off the measure because of the cost to taxpayers if it is challenged in court. Baumgardner plans to ask fellow lawmakers to effectively kill the bill. “We’re probably going to offer for it to go away today. For the same reason that I’ve told everybody else the undue cost to the taxpayers, the litigation that could possibly be brought forward,” he said. House Bill 1107 would have allowed police to arrest illegal immigrants without warrant if law enforcement had probable cause to believe they were in the country illegally. It also would have required immigrants to always carry their documents and made it illegal for undocumented immigrants to work in Colorado. (fox)
