Utah Gov. Accuses Denver Mayor of Sending Immigrants Without ‘Notification or Approval’

Washington Examiner

Gov. Spencer Cox (R-UT) blasted Colorado’s Mayor of Denver, Mike Johnston (D), for sending immigrants to the state without notice.

“We recently learned that the Democrat mayor of Denver has been sending illegal immigrants to Utah without proper notification or approval. This is completely unacceptable and follows on the failed catch-and-release policy of the Biden administration,” Cox wrote on X. “Every state has received illegal immigrants and Utah’s resources are completely depleted.”

Last year, Michael Bernacke, the director of the Salt Lake City Field Office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, designated Utah as a sanctuary state. At the time, Senate President J. Stuart Adams (R), then-House Speaker Brad Wilson (R), and Cox refuted the designation.
