Dear Trevor:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the President's executive orders on border security and interior enforcement. I appreciate hearing from you.

I am deeply concerned about the President's executive orders on immigration. The orders will further divide our nation and do nothing to make our communities safer. Denying asylum seekers due process undermines American values. Despite the President's campaign rhetoric, it seems more and more likely that U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill to construct the wall. Finally, the ambiguous attempt to strip funding from so-called "sanctuary cities" could deprive critical resources to local law enforcement throughout our state and make it harder to fight crime.

If the President and Congressional Republicans really want to fix our broken immigration system, they must offer solutions that honor our respect for the rule of law and our heritage as a nation of immigrants. We did that in 2013 with a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill, which would have secured our borders, strengthened our economy, and protected American workers while providing a tough but fair pathway to citizenship to immigrants who are contributing to their communities. Unfortunately, the President's orders take us in the opposite direction.

These executive orders require Congressional action in order to be fully implemented. Please know that I will keep your thoughts and concerns in mind as we continue to discuss immigration policies.

I value the input of fellow Coloradans in considering the wide variety of important issues and legislative initiatives that come before the Senate. I hope you will continue to inform me of your thoughts and concerns.

For more information about my priorities as a U.S. Senator, I invite you to visit my website at http://bennet.senate.gov/. Again, thank you for contacting me.

Michael F. Bennet
United States Senator
