A new Colorado initiative could separate residents from illegal aliens

A new Colorado initiative could separate residents from illegal aliens and could ultimately offer a new solution for immigration law enforcement in Colorado.

We at Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform find ourselves smitten with a wealth-transfer scheme targeting Colorado created by a wealthy millennial from New York City.

The co-founder of Facebook, Chris Hughes, is putting some of his massive resources behind a socialist idea called "universal basic income," which massively taxes the 1% just to give that money to people making less than $70,000 a year. It seems the young Mr. Hughes, via his surrogates, has filed some 14 variations of his Robin Hood plan with the Colorado Secretary of State's office in hopes of getting the plan in front of Colorado voters this fall.

His proposal might have an unintended benefit to those of us trying to stem the tide of illegal aliens pouring into Colorado. By the wording in the initiatives the "redistributions" would be transferred to Colorado "residents." Colorado law - especially the tax code - is fairly clear that a "resident" is very different than an "illegal alien."

This plan might become the mechanism we've been waiting for. It could officially differentiate illegal aliens, who would not be able to get free money under the plan, from "residents," who could.

Under this plan Colorado might be able to do what ICE can't or won't do: identify individual illegal aliens for deportation.

We haven't gone through the complete language of all of Hughes's proposals. But this plan does seem to offer a potential solution for immigration law enforcement in Colorado.

Facebook co-founder Hughes: The digital economy is 'going to continue to destroy' jobs in America, by Matthew J. Belvedere, CNBC, February 20, 2018:

U.S. workers who make less than $50,000 per year should get a government stipend of $500 per month, says Chris Hughes. "As long as you're working for your country, your country takes care of you," says Hughes, an advocate for a basic income. The wealthy 1 percent should pay for the program, he says….

Hughes said it's kind of like the existing earned income tax credit, or EITC, a government program that gives a financial boost for families with low incomes or moderate incomes. The EITC, popular among Democrats and Republicans, "needs to be expanded" and modernized, he continued, "and made flat so people actually know how much money they're getting."

The Complex Power Coupledom of Chris Hughes and Sean Eldridge, by Sarah Ellison, Vanity Fair, July, 2015:

Chris Hughes, the sandy-haired Facebook co-founder and an online organizer for Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, had recently bought a majority stake in The New Republic, a century-old, Washington, D.C.-based magazine that had been founded in Theodore Roosevelt’s living room and had come to define a certain strain of modern liberalism. He was marrying his longtime boyfriend, a tanned and chiseled Sean Eldridge...

Yet, in the space of two and a half years, the glitter has dulled. The Daily Beast in one article called Hughes and Eldridge “America’s Worst Gay Power Couple.” In another, focusing on Hughes’s recent actions at The New Republic, where he had abruptly replaced the editor, Franklin Foer, and thereby caused most of the top writers and editors to leave...

Hughes’s main contribution was to translate Facebook to the real world, and to bring some human, or “user,” experience to his tech-minded co-founders....

In the fall of 2006, Facebook had just begun allowing political candidates to create profile pages, and Hughes helped the staff of a freshman senator from Illinois, Barack Obama, with his Facebook page. Hughes was inspired by Obama and left to work on the campaign in Chicago. He is credited with helping to develop My.BarackObama.com, a networking site for volunteers....
