Representative Williams, bill sponsor, presented House Bill 18-1178. Conditional upon voter approval, the bill creates civil and criminal penalties for creating sanctuary jurisdictions. A sanctuary jurisdiction is defined as one that adopts a law, ordinance, or policy that prohibits or in any way restricts an official or employee from cooperating and complying with federal immigration law or from sending, receiving, or using information regarding the immigration status of an individual. A sanctuary jurisdiction can be the state, a city, a county, a school district, a special district, an institution of higher education, or any other political subdivision of the state. Representative Williams provided the committee with a written statement from Nick Rogers of the Denver Police Protective Association [Attachment G].
