Police chief finalist in Colorado eliminated because he supported enforcing immigration laws
SEPTEMBER 22, 2017
A finalist for police chief of Colorado’s fourth largest city was eliminated from consideration after city officials learned of two news stories where the candidate was quoted as supporting Arizona’s immigration control law, a government watchdog group said.
Steve Henry, a former chief deputy for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in central Arizona, was one of six finalists chosen from a list of 65 people who applied for the Fort Collins police chief position.
Judicial Watch has filed a public records request “to obtain details about the troublesome case in which the support for the rule of law served as a disqualifier for a candidate hired to enforce the rule of law.”
