Immigration and refugee issues have been at the forefront of the public policy arena for many years now and during the 2016 election both major parties put forth starkly contrasting platforms concerning these critical topics. Since his inauguration, the President has begun implementing a number of initiatives that have proven to have profound consequences for many of our neighbors. In Colorado, legislators have also attempted to push through legislation this session aimed at addressing these issues.
