anti latino immigration
Defend Colorado Now describes itself as a multiple issue committee that supports reform on immigration legislation. The website talks of understanding the 'fundamental fairness' of not allowing illegal foreign residents to reside in the US and utilise services intended for US citizens. The website focuses mainly on the different legislation in place already and what reforms are needed and are beginning petitioned for. The website doesnt really seem to offer any justification for its views other than that illegal residents shouldnt be using their services or taking jobs. The website presents itself as being fairly intellectual yet their seems to be little information to back up their argument. However i suppose its necessary to take into account colorados positioning in the US, neighbouring New Mexico. This means that colorado is likely to have seen a larger influx of illegal immigrants than many other states which may go some way to explaining the negative attitudes towards illegal immigrants.
