Colorado State Patrol’s immigration unit won’t grow
DENVER, Colorado ” State lawmakers have rejected a plan to double the size of the Colorado State Patrol immigration unit.
The proposal by Republican Sen. Ted Harvey would have increased the number of troopers in the unit to 48. That’s the original number the patrol asked for two years ago.
Adding 24 members would have cost $3.9 million.
The Senate Appropriations Committee rejected the spending Tuesday, saying the money isn’t available.
