Colorado is already nearing capacity for housing and caring for the flood of foreign nationals taking advantage of the Democrat Party’s smash and grab immigration policy of temporary citizenship via the secret password — asylum.
U.S. Sens. Hickenlooper and Bennet are making a show as they beg for more taxpayer dollars to pay for the system they helped shatter under the present, inadequate budget funded when Democrats still had full power in Washington, D.C.
Hickenlooper and Bennet are calling on the Homeland Security secretary to provide more money to Colorado and Denver, which is dealing with a sharp increase in migrants arriving in the city.

Colorado taxpayers have already coughed up $15 million to pay the housing, food, and travel costs to other states for nearly 10,000 migrants who are mostly just passing through Denver to someplace … better.
By claiming asylum because of persecution in their home countries due to political views, gender identity, or religion, border crashers are essentially getting temporary citizenship with papers that allow them to work and pay taxes until their court dates.

But it’s not just workers chasing the almighty capitalist dollars who are willing to pay union dues, taxes, and vote Democrat for the next two election cycles who are getting the border passes.
It’s also the network of an organized crime syndicate that includes drug dealers, gang members, sex traffickers and their victims, and hundreds of thousands of unaccompanied children vulnerable to slave labor practices.
And while our social services infrastructure is overwhelmed, it’s the homeless, mentally ill, and our veterans who are also paying the price for Joe Biden and the Democrats crushing the border and immigration system.
You can see Mexican immigration leading this group to the river today as part of their secret WhatsApp coordination with Biden’s DHS as I reported @CIS_org yesterday, but texas screwed this up by having a national guard tactical team block them on the bank.Vid by @jwbr77 pic.twitter.com/ZegYj3heIq

If it wasn’t broke before, it sure as Hell is now.
This is completely despicable. https://t.co/pZOuSlvmg3
