Denver schools protest Arizona immigration law

Denver Public Schools officials say they are banning work-related travel to Arizona so employees are not scrutinized under a law requiring officers to ask people about their immigration status.

DPS spokesman Kristy Armstrong says school employees are in the country legally but officials don’t want them to be “subjected to that kind of scrutiny and search.” The Arizona law signed last week by Gov. Jan Brewer requires authorities to question people suspected of being in the country illegally.

The law goes into effect this summer.

DPS Superintendent Tom Boasberg and board of education members are expected to announce the travel band Thursday afternoon.

  1. Good they really have no business here anyway

  2. If they are not hiding anything they have nothing to fear.

  3. Its about time someone steps up and enforces the law. I for one am tired of tax dollars going to support those who have not gone through the process to come here legally and do not contribute to the tax system. If they want to be here, go through the process! If not, stay where you are at. Being here illegally is a CRIME!

  4. lol, you get pulled over by the highway patrol, sheriffs dept, or a city cop, what is the first thing he/she asks for, your ID. so don’t even go there about not being asked for paper work. You all are so foolish.
    Now, go to Mexico and be undocumented. Hmmm, now that is jail time, if you are staying with a legal person, it means jail for them also. so why can’t we use the same type of laws in OUR country.
    all you bleeding heart liberals are so foolish…..
