Minor glitches mark new immigration law
The first day of Colorado’s get-tough stand on
illegal immigration opened with a whimper today with a few technical
glitches and paperwork problems reported statewide.
By noon, an expected line-up of homeless and indigent people
seeking coveted identification waivers never materialized at state
offices in downtown Denver.
Across town, though, city social service caseworkers scurried
to find the right documents for people to affirm they are in the United
States legally. State officials had not provided counties with the
proper paperwork in time.
