Boulder County Commissioners Add Support to ’People’s Resolution for Immigration Reform

"The resolution asks for a path to legal, permanent residency for all temporary protected status foreigners in the country, protection of foreign asylum seekers and a repeal of the federal Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, which bans undocumented immigrants who have overstayed their visas or crossed the border illegally from entering the U.S. again for either three or 10 years."

"It was started on behalf of Ingrid Encalada Latorre , a Peruvian immigrant taking sanctuary at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder to resist a federal deportation order; Araceli Velasquez , a Salvadoran immigrant taking sanctuary at Park Hill United Methodist Church in Denver; Rosa Sabido , a Mexican immigrant who is taking sanctuary at Mancos United Methodist Church in Mancos, west of Durango; and Sandra Lopez , a Mexican immigrant who last month exited a 10-month sanctuary in a Carbondale church after learning she was not a priority of federal immigration officials."
