Colorado voters say yes to Initiative 100

DENVER (AP) ” Denver voters passed a ballot measure that would give police the authority to seize cars driven by illegal immigrants.

Initiative 100 requires police to impound vehicles of unlicensed drivers, an authority they already have. It also adds language to the city code that targets illegal immigrants.

The measure says that when a driver is an illegal alien or “may be reasonably suspected of being an illegal alien” police can impound the car.

Opponents of the measure say the ordinance could lead to racial profiling.

Supporters say the measure keeps more unlicensed drivers off the roads.

Colorado law prohibits illegal immigrants from getting a driver’s license.
