Press Release

Rep. Jason Crow released the below statement following last night’s vote by the Aurora City Council on Councilmember Allison Hiltz’s ordinance requiring all detention centers to report communicable disease to the Fire department within 48 hours. 

“Aurora residents deserve to know that ICE is operating in good faith in our community. Keeping the Fire Department abreast of communicable diseases is an important step in that process and ensures our first responders are adequately prepared to deal with any public health issues in the community. Thank you to Allison Hiltz, Nicole Johnston, and Crystal Murillo for their leadership on this issue and to the Aurora City Council who overwhelmingly moved forward to increase transparency at the Aurora ICE facility and other detention centers.”
