WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper released the following statement after city officials in Denver announced that approximately 100 migrants arrived in the city overnight with little notice:
“Human lives are not political props. Denver will welcome these migrants with open arms and help any way they can. We will be empathetic to people put in a difficult situation.
“Instead of playing partisan games, let’s tackle our broken immigration system once and for all.”
City officials have quickly set up an emergency shelter and are working with non-profit partners to connect people with resources.
