Colorado Democrats stepped over the bodies of their homeless constituents sleeping in the shadow of the state Capitol dome on their way to pass a bill giving public housing benefits to illegal immigrants.
This is not an April Fools joke.
House Bill 21-1054 is sponsored by Rep. Dominique Jackson of Aurora and Sen. Julie Gonzales of Denver, and passed the Senate this week by a 20-14 vote.
“We’ve got tents popping up every single day right outside the State Capitol with homeless American citizens living in them, struggling with mental health issues and substance use disorders,” Sage Naumann, spokesperson for the Colorado Senate Republicans, told The Center Square.
“Legislators in the General Assembly are here to represent citizens of this nation, not the citizens of other nations, a duty that Democrats view as racist,” he continued.
The legislation removes verification procedures for those applying for limited services and benefits associated with public housing that are paid for by U.S. taxpayers.
