CCDB Policy Statement on Immigration
CCDB recognizes the constitutional rights and fundamental dignity of all persons, regardless of immigration status.
The involvement of the state and local criminal justice system in matters federal immigration law undermines public safety by creating fear and distrust in immigrant communities. These misguided policies raise serious constitutional concerns, promote disparate treatment of defendants, and foster bias and discrimination based on real or perceived immigration status.
CCDB supports principled state laws and policies that recognize the need for comprehensive, realistic and humane federal immigration reform and which safeguard the constitutional rights of all persons, promote fair and equal treatment, and further the integrity of the Colorado criminal justice system.
