Walker Stapleton on Immigration
Sanctuary cities are a direct threat to public safety
The proliferation of so-called 'Sanctuary Cities' is a direct threat to public safety and rule of law in Colorado. These policies have put new challenges in front of our law enforcement community who have now been
told by certain jurisdictions to ignore federal immigration laws. No Sheriff, Police Chief or any of our public safety officer should EVER be fearful of retaliation or litigation simply for upholding their oath office to ensure public safety in Colorado.

End these dangerous sanctuary city policies
Stapleton plans a 30-second commercial that describes the two-term state treasurer as "a conservative who gets things done." The campaign is spending an initial $700,000 on the ad, which will run statewide on broadcast and cable.
treasurer, I stopped the largest tax increase in state history, and I led the fight against a single-payer health care system--and we won again," a smiling Stapleton says in the ad, which also pictures his wife, Jenna, and their three young children.
Then, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence smile and wave as they briefly cross the screen. Stapleton brings up two key issues for Trump supporters--the Republican tax reform bill and so-called sanctuary cities.
"I was the only
(state) treasurer in the country with the courage to support Donald Trump's tax cuts, and as your next governor, I'll end these dangerous sanctuary city policies. I'll take the fight to the liberals and beat 'em again," Stapleton says.
