Local immigrant rights activists are holding a rally at Glenwood Springs High School on Tuesday. They want Rep. Scott Tipton, a Republican, to commit to the undocumented people who were brought to the U.S. as children, otherwise known as DREAMers.
In September, the Trump administration rescinded Obama-era protections for these so-called DREAMers.
Sens. Cory Gardner, a Republican, and Michael Bennet, a Democrat, both have backed legislation protecting DREAMers from deportation.
According to the Colorado Immigrants Rights Coalition, Tipton has not indicated whether or not he would support this kind of legislation.
