Statement from Attorney General Coffman on President Trump's Executive Order on Travel Restrictions

A statement from Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman regarding President Trump's Executive Order on Travel Restrictions

“Protecting national security is a paramount obligation of the federal government, and policy decisions regarding immigration are reserved expressly to Congress and the President.  Any remaining legal challenges to the immigration order will have to be appropriately addressed by our federal courts. While I do not have legal authority over federal immigration law, I do appreciate the legitimate concerns raised amid confusion during rollout of the recent executive order as some people’s lives have been seriously impacted.  As State Attorney General, I will continue to monitor the situation and its impact on Colorado.”
