Obviously, this topic is going to bring a lot of different opinions but we are finding out from the Canon City Daily Record that Colorado is now the first state to provide public housing benefits regardless of immigration status. The bill was passed earlier this week and has now moved to Governor Jared Polis's desk where it is expected to be signed into law.

Once this bill is signed that will mean close to 180,000 people will receive benefits from the state of Colorado without having proper authorization. Before this bill, no one without proper immigration status has been able to gain access to any public benefits including stimulus checks and business grants over the past year. Even though lawmakers set aside $5 million dollars last year to assist families within the United States who are undocumented.

What Benefits Will Now Be Available for Undocumented Coloradans

The new bill would open up not only emergency pandemic housing assistance but would include all forms of state housing assistance moving forward. Colorado lawmakers are saying that Governor Polis will move forward and sign this bill.

The other bill that is crossing our governor's desk this week that has to do with immigration will eliminate the term "illegal alien" as some people find the term dehumanizing and humiliating. This proposed language change is also expected to pass and be signed into law.

As a Colorado citizen are you happy with the decisions Governor Polis is making with the signing of these two bills?
