The Denver Post need look no further than its own website to find that Rep. Mike Coffman opposes any proposal offering America's estimated 11 million undocumented residents a path to citizenship.
Coffman: I consider myself aligned with Congressman Tancredo in that he fundamentally believes that we need to secure our borders and that we should not grant either amnesty and a path to citizenship to those who have violated our laws.
You'd think the Post would point this out, when it publishes an editorial backing comprehensive immigration reform, including a path to citizenship.
But the Post's Sunday editorial, "Immigration's Time Has Come," was silent about the positions of Colorado's big-shot congressional Republicans.
One proposal actually reduces visas for poor people from places like Africa, to make room for higher-achieving immigrants, favoring one group over the other. The other measure, an actual bill, allows undocumented kids to attend college and get work visas.
But neither offers a path to citizenship, as the Post favors.
It's great for the Post to back comprehensive immigration reform and to criticize the GOP's half-baked proposals.
But it should also spotlight the obstacles to real immigration reform here in Colorado.
