710 KNUS is taking action to share direct insights
& interviews from the El Paso border.
KNUS local hosts, George Brauchler, Deborah Flora and Steffan Tubbs recently spent a week broadcasting from El Paso, Texas. The goal of the El Paso Project is designed to report with authenticity the real and growing concern of immigration and the effects on Colorado.
- Illegal migration costs the American taxpayer approximately $132 billion annually, and could exceed $200 billion by 2025.
- There are at least approximately 14.3 million illegal aliens in the United States as of 2019, a jump of nearly 2 million people since 2017.
- Denver, CO is one of 564 “sanctuary” jurisdictions throughout the United States as of May 2018.
Add your voice to the growing number of people asking Governor Jared Polis to end the “sanctuary status” of Colorado that is luring vulnerable individuals that are being exploited under failed policies and criminal elements to flood our streets. A petition will be presented on behalf of all those who are asking for this crisis to end.
You have the right to question Colorado’s persistently high rates of crime and whether policymakers’ decisions have facilitated this crime tsunami.
Is the surge in fentanyl related to relaxed penalties? Is there a correlation between the rise in lawless behavior such as vandalism and vagrancy and the rise in serious crime? Why are police departments experiencing staff shortages and low morale? Why has the legalization of marijuana not extinguished the black market and why is illegal marijuana trafficking on the rise? Given the increase in crime, the public should expect an increase in incarceration and yet, the number of incarcerated adults has decreased. Why has it?
