Cory Gardner: Voted against protecting DREAMers from deportation

Q: Create path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented residents and "DACA" participants brought to the U.S. as children?

Corey Gardner: Mixed. Voted against protecting DREAMers from deportation. Later co-sponsored legislation for a 12-year pathway to citizenship combined with increased border wall funding.

John Hickenlooper: Yes. Wants to see "a permanent pathway to citizenship for our DREAMers." Calls expanded border wall "ineffective" and a waste of billions.

Cory Gardner: Opposed 2013 bipartisan bill; later co-wrote DACA bill

Gardner was a member of the Republican House majority that in 2013 refused to consider a bipartisan Senate immigration bill that would have provided a path to citizenship for 11 million people in the country illegally, including those brought illegally as children who qualified for the Obama administration program known as DACA. Since Trump's election, though, Gardner has co-written a bill with Colorado's Democratic senator, Michael Bennet, to legalize DACA recipients.

Jared Polis: Appointed first DREAMer to serve on state board

In the face of unprecedented hostility from this White House toward our immigrant communities, we say loudly and proudly that we stand with DREAMers and refugees. I was proud to appoint Marissa Molina, the first DREAMer in Colorado history to serve on a state board or commission, to the board of Metro State University. We still need the federal government to pass comprehensive immigration reform. We don't build walls of exclusion in Colorado--we build ladders of opportunity.

"Can you believe what's occurring right now?" she asks. "Trump has created a humanitarian crisis. We need to restore an orderly, fair system and create a path to citizenship for asylum seekers. I feel like immigration is our civil-rights issue now."

John Walsh: Comprehensive immigration reform for welcoming migrants

We can have secure borders and at the same time be a welcoming, decent nation that lives up to our historical legacy as a nation of immigrants.

The Trump Administration's senseless policies that dehumanize migrants--from separating migrant children from their parents, to attempting to significantly limit legal grants of asylum--have created an artificial and manufactured humanitarian disaster at our border. Simply put, this Administration's actions--aided and abetted by Cory Gardner's inaction--are based on cruelty, are designed to foster division and bigotry within our country, and do not reflect our American values. The damage they have caused must be addressed immediately.

Merely solving this immediate crisis, while crucial, is not enough. We also need comprehensive immigration reform to replace our fundamentally broken immigration laws with a fair and just system that treats immigrants with decency and respect, consistent with who we are as a nation.

Jared Polis: Restore DACA: Don't cast 1M aspiring Americans into shadows

Q: Support DACA, allowing "Dreamers" who arrived illegally as children, then grew up in the US, to achieve legal status if meet certain conditions? Support path to citizenship for America's 11 million illegal immigrants?

Jared Polis (D): Yes. "Outraged" .by Trump's "callous & short-sighted decision" to end DACA & "cast nearly 1 million aspiring Americans back into the shadows." Supports earned path to citizenship for other illegal immigrants, combined with increased border protections.

Walker Stapleton (R): Has said supports Trump proposals, which gave DACA recipients legal status but not path to citizenship in return for building the wall and tightening legal immigration. Has also supported deporting anyone in the country illegally.

Tom Tancredo: Sanctuary Cities are a travesty but I hate identity politics

In last night's Channel 4 story about Walker Stapleton [a candidate for governor whom Tancredo supports], there was an insinuation that because of my defense and relationship to an immigration reform group, erroneously defined as a "white nationalist" organization, that my support Mr. Stapleton taints his candidacy.

I hate identity politics. In my support or criticism of public policies I make no distinction based on anyone's race or color of skin. My love for America and my steadfast desire to help preserve its promise--and indeed the promise of freedom and opportunity for all people--has never been about race.

My Congressional office assisted thousands of Americans of every imaginable racial, religious and ethnic background. No request for support was ever turned down because of the anyone's race, sexual orientation or ethnicity.

I support Mr. Stapleton because of his opposition to the travesty of Sanctuary Cities.

Walker Stapleton: Sanctuary cities are a direct threat to public safety

The proliferation of so-called 'Sanctuary Cities' is a direct threat to public safety and rule of law in Colorado. These policies have put new challenges in front of our law enforcement community who have now been told by certain jurisdictions to ignore federal immigration laws. No Sheriff, Police Chief or any of our public safety officer should EVER be fearful of retaliation or litigation simply for upholding their oath office to ensure public safety in Colorado.

Greg Lopez: I support legal immigration, not illegal immigration

If you believe in sanctuary cities, you don't believe in the rule of law. You're saying you believe some people among us are entitled to extra protection and extra rights. That's not what America is all about. I'm talking about equality. So I do not support sanctuary cities. I don't have a problem telling people I support legal immigration, not illegal immigration.

Walker Stapleton: End these dangerous sanctuary city policies

Stapleton plans a 30-second commercial that describes the two-term state treasurer as "a conservative who gets things done." The campaign is spending an initial $700,000 on the ad, which will run statewide on broadcast and cable.

"As Colorado's treasurer, I stopped the largest tax increase in state history, and I led the fight against a single-payer health care system--and we won again," a smiling Stapleton says in the ad, which also pictures his wife, Jenna, and their three young children.

Then, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence smile and wave as they briefly cross the screen. Stapleton brings up two key issues for Trump supporters--the Republican tax reform bill and so-called sanctuary cities.

"I was the only (state) treasurer in the country with the courage to support Donald Trump's tax cuts, and as your next governor, I'll end these dangerous sanctuary city policies. I'll take the fight to the liberals and beat 'em again," Stapleton says.

Victor Mitchell: Supports Trump's anti-sanctuary city policies

Mitchell would support taking state money away from cities deemed to have sanctuary city policies, a measure a federal court judge already has told the Trump administration would not likely pass a constitutional challenge. He is quick to say that court decision isn't final, and he thinks Colorado can add nuance to make it work. If Democrats retain the House next year, where they already have a 37-28 edge, that proposal is dead on arrival, the same way the idea died last session.

Brauchler said, "I don't see Colorado as a sanctuary state. And I don't think we have the resources to be targeting undocumented immigrants who are not a threat to anyone. And the Supreme Court has ruled that immigration is a federal, not a state concern." That said, Brauchler said he opposes communities declaring themselves as "sanctuaries" that will oppose federal enforcement.

Cary Kennedy: Keep local cops out of immigration

Immigration is a federal issue. The failing of Washington to implement an immigration system that works for our families and our businesses--it's Washington's failure. For us locally in Colorado, it's really important that all people here feel comfortable with their local law enforcement. We want everyone to report crimes when they see them, we want everyone to feel that they can report, for example, child abuse or domestic abuse. We don't ever want to create an environment where people are afraid of their own local police officers. So we need to leave immigration as a federal issue and we need to have our local law enforcement focus on protecting our communities.

Mike Johnston: Protect immigrants living in the country illegally

Johnston emphasized that his campaign will attract Sanders supporters--specifically his focus on college affordability, protecting immigrants living in the country illegally and his record against accepting campaign contributions from political action committees. "I think the Bernie folks will find a lot of the values that they share will be evidenced in our campaign," Johnston said in an interview.

The move will draw young supporters Johnston needs to build a campaign but it will open him to political attacks from Republican critics. A GOP operative remarked that Johnston is "clearly making an appeal to run on the far left of his party with Bernie Sanders-style promises" and suggested his platform amounts to a "government force to make Coloradans pay for more programs."

Darryl Glenn: Start reform with securing the border

Q: How would you resolve the immigration issue?

A: Any conversation about immigration reform must start with securing the border. The first duty of government is national security, and that doesn't exist until we know who is coming into and out of the country. We must secure the border and enforce existing laws that govern our immigration policy. I fully support a policy of legal immigration that brings to our nation those that will enrich the fabric of our country while respecting the rule of law.

Q: How would you resolve the immigration issue?

Our comprehensive immigration reform bill included a path to citizenship for millions living in the shadows, as well as measures to strengthen border security and reform our outdated visa system. It passed the Senate with 68 votes, but Washington dysfunction got in the way and House obstructionists blocked a vote.

Darryl Glenn: End federal funding for sanctuary cities; no amnesty

I stand for what's right: the rule of law. The idea of supporting executive orders that establish amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants or federal funding for "sanctuary cities" is a violation of the rule of law.

There is clearly a dire need to address the growing impact of illegal immigration. Congress and the President must first secure our borders and ports. Border and port security should be treated as a national security issue free from partisan grandstanding. Next, Congress and the President must demonstrate a willingness to enforce all of the laws currently enacted to govern our immigration policy. This also includes implementing changes that create efficiencies and greater fiscal accountability. Finally, if additional changes are necessary, Congress and the President must enact immigration policies that are grounded in the rule of law, maintain the safety and security of our citizen and that benefit our economy.

Our border MUST be secured. There can be no discussion of any so-called immigration reform until our border is completely secured. One of the dangerous failures of leadership in D.C. is that our borders STILL go virtually unprotected and our immigration laws go unenforced. It's time we secure our borders, deport those who are involved in criminal activity, cut off all federal funding to sanctuary cities and end any federal welfare for those who enter the U.S. illegally.

Bob Beauprez: 2007: Cleanse out illegals; 2014: no need to send them home

The lunchtime debates between Hickenlooper and his gubernatorial challenger Bob Beauprez, and later Sen. Mark Udall and his Senate challenger Rep. Cory Gardner, were meant to focus on economic issues. Questions regarding immigration reform played a big role in both debates, which saw both Republicans pivot from past hard-line stances.

Beauprez--who has long said he doesn't support amnesty-style solutions--said he did not support requiring people in the US who are here illegally to go back to their home countries before re-entering legally. "I don't think that's necessary at all in the era we live in today," he said.

That, however, conflicts with what Beauprez wrote on his blog, A Line of Sight, in 2007, when he called sending immigrants home a "cleansing process."

Tom Tancredo: Viva Tancredo: support for legal immigration, in Spanish

Tom Tancredo has launched a campaign to appeal to Spanish-speaking voters in the state. Tancredo's website now features his Viva Tancredo campaign alongside scenic snowy mountains and the open landscape of the American West.

Tancredo, who is well-known for his support of English as the official language of the United States, ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008 and for Colorado governor on the Constitution Party ticket in 2010.

Tancredo's new Spanish-language advertising will emphasize support for legal immigration. The ads will note a broken immigration system that rewards undocumented immigrants instead of law-abiding migrants.

A website video below shows Tancredo telling Wolf Blitzer, "No, I would not advertise in Spanish," during a 2008 president cycle debate. The Viva Tancredo website features a Spanish-language news report on the candidate, in which he wears one of his wryly controversial baseball caps, this time flashing the logo of the U.S. Border Patrol.

Ken Buck: People with two misdemeanors disqualified for citizenship

One of the questions concerned the "Dream Act" which would grant citizenship to illegal aliens, in return for meeting certain requirements such as promising to serve two years in the military or completing two years of college with the intent to obtain a degree.

When asked for positions on the Dream Act, Sen. Bennet, who co-sponsored the bill, enthusiastically voiced his support while Buck stated he is opposed to the bill. Buck said we should not give people that have come to this country illegally the benefit of the Dream Act. Buck went on to criticize a portion of the bill that would allow an individual with two misdemeanors to still qualify for citizenship. "I consider two misdemeanor sex assaults, or two DUI's or other crimes to be serious, especially if they're committed by the time they are 18 or 19 years old." Buck said he does agree that he wants to give people the opportunity to become citizens, but that citizenship has to be earned.

Our current immigration system is broken. Our borders are not secure, legal immigration channels do not serve America's economic needs and instead of bringing families together, too often the system separates them. Despite these serious problems, the debate over immigration policy is often reduced to emotion and kneejerk rhetoric.

It is time for practical, comprehensive reform that fixes our immigration system as a whole--enhancing border security and creating sound policy solutions for undocumented immigration.

Bob Schaffer: Opposes sanctuary cities; help local police enforce law

Schaffer said he opposes so-called sanctuary cities, and said the federal government should do more to help local law enforcement. “We need to provide incentives to encourage local sheriffs and local police departments to actually enforce immigration laws and when they incur expenses associated with incarcerating those who violated the law, or need to be deported, states out to be reimbursed and compensated,” he said.

Udall said the federal government “has been missing in action.” He suggested a number of reforms including tamper proof IDs, new technology for monitoring the border and a program that would allow for immigrants already in the country to “come out of the shadows,” register themselves, pay a fine, go through a background check to prove they can speak English and are employed, then “go to the back of the line” to gain citizenship.
