Denver Post Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“We have called for comprehensive immigration reform like that advanced by Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, who worked with a bipartisan group of senators to pass in 2013 a highly useful means toward fixing our broken immigration system. That plan provided nearly $40 billion to secure the border. It also created an arduous but reasonable path to citizenship. When that measure failed to gain traction, we also supported solutions short of citizenship that provided legal status, like an indefinite work visa.”
