Colorado Republican lawmakers are planning legislation to address illegal immigration.
Sen.-elect Kent Lambert, R-Colorado Springs, said he plans to introduce an Arizona-style law when the Legislature convenes in January. It would require police to check people’s immigration status.
A version of the Arizona law could pass the GOP controlled House, but it has little chance of getting out of the state Senate, where Democrats have a 20-15 majority.
And, Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper has vowed to veto any such legislation.
