Colorado is regarded as a sanctuary state because of its friendly policies toward illegal aliens, and they’ve just gone up another level.
The sanctuary state of Colorado will begin allowing illegal aliens to obtain professional licenses, funneling them into white-collar American jobs.
This week, Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed into law a plan that will give out professional licenses for jobs in education and health care, among other industries, to illegal aliens.Breitbart News
These people shouldn’t even be here!
And now they’re allowed to take our jobs as well.
What a disgrace.
Typical America-hating Democrats.
This is our country, not some free-for-all playground for illegal aliens to use at our expense.
Big Tech wants us to lose out, too.
Facebook is a huge multinational corporation which has no loyalty to any particular nation, so of course they’ll lobby for this.
The rule even explicitly states it will help illegal aliens, despite the unemployment rate in Colorado being higher than the national average.
“The bill eliminates the requirement that the department of education … verify the lawful presence of each applicant before issuing or renewing a license,” the law reads:
The bill also specifies that lawful presence is not required of any applicant for any state or local license, certificate, or registration. The bill affirmatively states that the bill is a state law within the meaning of the federal law that gives states authority to provide for eligibility for state and local public benefits to persons who are unlawfully residing in the United States.

FWD.us Colorado State Immigration Director Marissa Molina praised the legislature’s passage and Polis’ signing, claiming it will help fill “worker shortages” even as the state’s unemployment rate is 6.4 percent as of April — above the national unemployment rate, which is 6.1 percent.Breitbart News
All of the Americans in Colorado who are out-of-work and looking for a decent, honest job in a profession they’re skilled at have just been slapped in the face.
How many of them are liberals that voted Democrat but will still lose anyway?
And how many are Republicans having their livelihoods taken away by Democrats?
Important questions, but whichever group voters fit into, they’ve all lost because of this policy.
Here’s the bigger picture.
Today, there are anywhere between 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., costing Americans about $134 billion annually, with about eight million holding American jobs. Nearly 200,000 illegal aliens reside in Colorado.Breitbart News
Should Republicans ever get back into national office, this problem needs to be at the top of their list.
American jobs are being handed out to illegal aliens who did nothing to deserve them and broke the law to get them – and that needs to stop.
