    WASHINGTON -- A Republican congressman said he'll use a rarely invoked maneuver Tuesday to force a bill to the floor for a vote that would protect DACA beneficiaries for the next three years. Politico reported Sunday that administration officials met to discuss how to roll out President Trump's decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allowed qualified undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children to apply for protected status. About 800,000 people are now registered under DACA. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) introduced the Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow...

    Former U.S. Congressman and Lt. Col. Allen West expressed his opposition to a potential move by Pres. Obama to use military enlistment as a vehicle to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. In a post on his website on Thursday, Lt. Col. West said, "the purpose of serving our nation should not be about earning citizenship. It should be about being a guardian of the Republic." Lt. Col. West added that he'll speak out against any Member of Congress who supports a policy to grant a military amnesty.

In his back. I write today to encourage your support of Steve House for Chairman of the State Republican Party.

    I write today to encourage your support of Steve House for Chairman of the State Republican Party. Steve formerly chaired the Adams County Republican Party and was a candidate for governor in 2014. As I worked alongside Steve, I saw a uniquely talented leader whose passion for conservatism and our party is infectious. His speeches are inspired and motivating. His ideas are forward thinking and common sense. I was so impressed that I asked Steve to speak on my behalf on the campaign trail. After my election as Attorney General, I brought Steve in to serve on my transition team....
  • DCCC pulls $1M in ads for Andrew Romanoff [ Colorado ]

    Politico ^ | 10/10/14 | Alex Isenstadt
    National Democrats are canceling more than $1 million of planned commercial airtime for Colorado congressional candidate Andrew Romanoff — a sign of waning confidence in his prospects. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee had reserved $1.4 million for TV spending to boost Romanoff in the final two weeks of his race against Republican Rep. Mike Coffman. .. Romanoff, a former state House speaker and unsuccessful 2010 Senate candidate, was once regarded as one of his party’s top 2014 hopefuls. But, with Republicans benefiting from a favorable national environment and Coffman running an energetic reelection campaign, Romanoff has seen his prospects dim....
  • Advocates, Mariachi Band Take Over Rep. Cory Gardner’s (R-CO) Office

    Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has been no real friend to immigration reform — a fact that is sure to hurt him this fall as he runs for Sen. Mark Udall’s (D-CO) seat. Today, hours after Rep. Luis Gutierrez declared legislative immigration reform officially dead, and laid the blame on the House GOP’s refusal to take action, more than 70 advocates in Colorado took over Rep. Gardner’s district office and called him out for his role in opposing immigration reform.

    Colorado Peak Politics ^ | June 20, 2014
    U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman’s searing criticism of Former Montana Governor Schweitzer’s ridiculously sexist comments inspired some pretty damning headlines yesterday. But, Coffman’s opponent, Andrew Romanoff, was silent on the matter. And, now we know why – Schweitzer was in Colorado seven months ago stumping for Romanoff. ... Calling Diane Feinstein a prostitute-turned-nun is probably not the way to win friends and influence people, so we have to ask – will Romanoff denounce his fundraiser buddy’s comments? We’ve reached out to his campaign for comment. They responded with [drum roll] silence. ... They say you are who your friends are. Perhaps...

    Daily Caller ^ | Greg Campbell
    Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo couldn’t win a statewide race if the Democratic candidate were caught in a sexting scandal, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette’s editorial board. In a scathing editorial, the paper urged Republican primary candidates Scott Gessler and Mike Kopp — described in the editorial as capable candidates — to fall on their swords and bow out of the June 24 primary race. That would eliminate the chance for moderate Republicans to split three ways between them and former Congressman Bob Beauprez — the scenario that makes it easiest for Tancredo to win the nomination.

    As House Republican leaders prepare to unveil their plan for immigration reform, addressing the undocumented population remains the thorniest issue. The New York Times reported Tuesday that the GOP's framework will call for a path to legal status for many of the 11.7 million immigrants living here without papers. But the document specifically opposes a "special pathway to citizenship," except for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

    Back in 2006, then State Treasurer Mike Coffman stood in font of 200 people on the steps of the state Capitol as they launched a ballot initiative that would have stopped Colorado from providing services to all undocumented immigrants, even children. Coffman led the group in reciting the pledge of allegiance, and then handed the microphone over to a string of speakers from an organization called Defend Colorado Now, which was organizing the extreme anti-immigrant initiative.

    Surprise action outside Denver's Brown Palace Hotel this morning, as a press release from a coalition of groups including Together Colorado and the Colorado Immigration Reform Coalition (CIRC) explains: Outside a fundraiser headlined by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) for Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) today, local leaders staged a rally to protest the fact that these three House Republicans are key obstacles standing in the way of immigration reform that would keep Colorado immigrant families together. It has been 322 days since the Senate passed a bipartisan immigration bill, but Speaker Boehner and House...

    On May 5th the Center for Security Policy released a letter in which "sixteen influential former leaders of the U.S. military" express strong opposition to a National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment that will "open service in the armed forces to illegal aliens brought here as children by their parents." According to the Center for Security Policy release, the letter was directed to House Armed Services Committee chairman Representative Howard "Buck" McKeon (R-CA) in anticipation of the amendment, "expected to be offered by Rep.

    The Heritage Foundation ^ | David Inserra and Charles Stimson
    Under current law, lawful permanent residents (LPRs) are eligible to volunteer to serve in the United States military. If they pass the strict qualification requirements applicable to all who seek to serve, they can serve in the armed forces of the United States, and once they are in the armed forces, they may apply for expedited consideration for U.S. citizenship, which is granted on a routine basis. Now, however, some in Congress are looking to provide a backdoor to instant citizenship for unlawful immigrants who are brought to the U.S. as minors—also known as “DREAMers,” after the Development, Relief, and...

    End the Shutdown and Negotiate To govern in a divided government and get results, one must be open to compromise. And I know the American people and the people of Colorado expect us to govern. We are now in the second week of a government shutdown. To compound matters, the country will reach its authorized debt limit in a little over a week. Congress and President Obama must end this partisan drama by passing a spending bill to reopen the government, avert an economic crisis by passing an increase in the debt limit, and immediately begin working on a bipartisan...

    U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) blasted the Obama administration on Wednesday for suspending tuition assistance benefits for Army and Marine Corps servicemen, and called on the White House to restore funding to the program by paring back U.S. assistance to Egypt. “We are not under any obligation to continue to provide [Egypt] with over a billion and a half dollars in aid every year. Re-prioritizing this funding to our soldiers and Marines is the right thing to do,” said Coffman. Coffman has proposed trimming $500 million from unspent foreign aid to Egypt, and reprogramming the funding to the military tuition...

    Republican Congressman Mike Coffman is concerned that a recent report on the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage caused by a Muslim Army psychiatrist does not include an analysis of Islamic extremism. Coffman, R-Aurora, wrote a letter to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates on Friday, warning of the “dangerous risk” to national security from not acknowledging the “threat posed by radical Islam.” “A political ideology has emerged that is fraudulently camouflaged within a religious tradition and is so twisted in its beliefs that it values death over life and uses terrorism as its only tactic,” wrote Coffman, a decorated military man....

    Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman says it's time the U.S. took more aggressive action on the seas. He recommends arming merchant ships with military personnel. Coffman says the pirating problem is only going to get worse. "They may be less interested in taking hostages when the situation may be somewhat precarious for them to do so," Coffman said. "I think they are going to be more aggressive in their actions." Coffman says arming American merchant vessels with military personnel is also nothing new. "We did that in World War II, we posted military personnel on U.S.-flagged merchant vessels to provide protection....
