Denver Anti-Immigrant Ballot Initiative

This August's primaries aren't only about presidential politics. An anti-immigrant ballot initiative has made it onto the August ballot. The measure would force police to impound the car of anyone found not to have proof of residency on their person. See Wash Park Prophet for a detailed analysis and text of the bill.

Some may wonder why the group behind the initiative (CAIR) didn't ask for a November slot. That may be because they are counting on low turnout for the already decided presidential primaries to work in their favor.

Let's show up for justice, vote no on this ballot initiative and exercise our voting privileges this August 12th.
