(...) Colorado House Bill 17-1230, the Ralph Carr Freedom Defense Act, a bill to protect “Colorado residents from federal government overreach based on a person’s status.” The bill draws its name from Gov. Ralph Carr, the Republican governor of Colorado who stood up for the welfare and dignity of Japanese-American internees during World War II, and gained new urgency after President Donald Trump began making good on his threats to ban travel to the U.S. from certain Muslim nations and rounding up immigrant mothers.
Debate on this bill today in the House has been fierce and ugly. Republicans have led a drive to pull Gov. Carr’s name off the bill, and to insert language from Rep. Dave Williams’ failed bill to penalize so-called “sanctuary cities”–both actions that Democrats found highly objectionable given the bill’s intentions and namesake.
And then freshman Rep. Philip Covarrubias, Republican of Adams County, took it a step beyond:
Also, Henry Sanchez is the accused suspect in the Rockville rape case, who is listed as undocumented.

Didn't Donald Trump promise to send beaners like Phil Covarrubias back to whatever third world shithole they or their parents crawled out of? Call ICE, we've got some deporting to do. Hurry, there's no time to determine if he's a citizen! We're at war!
Republicans should be against them on the ground that they were chances for minorities to mooch off generous government housing!

What the fuck am I hearing?
You should be thanking the Japanese for all that sake you drank before speaking today, Phil

He's right, though. There was a very real chance that American citizens of Japanese descent were hiding military planes in their backyards, were training to be pilots in secret, were ready at any moment to sync up with a foreign air force to make further attacks on naval bases in the South Pacific.
Don't deny it couldn't have happened. In the heat of battle, anything is possible.
