Protect Colorado Residents From Federal Government Overreach
Federal immigration enforcement - no arrest based on civil detainer - no personal information to immigration authorities from probation - advisement before immigration interview. The act allows a law enforcement officer or employee to cooperate or assist federal immigration enforcement authorities in the execution of a warrant issued by a federal judge or magistrate or honoring any writ issued by any state or federal judge concerning the transfer of a prisoner to or from federal custody.
The act prohibits a law enforcement officer from arresting or detaining an individual solely on the basis of a civil immigration detainer.
The act prohibits a probation officer or probation department employee from providing an individual's personal information to federal immigration authorities.
If a law enforcement officer is coordinating a telephone or video interview between federal immigration authorities and an individual in jail or another custodial facility, the individual must be advised that:
- The interview is being sought by federal immigration authorities;
- The individual has the right to decline the interview and remain silent;
- The individual has the right to speak to an attorney before submitting to the interview; and
- Anything the individual says may be used against him or her in subsequent proceedings, including in a federal immigration court.
