Frusrated with Coloradans safety concerns, raises voice and laughs
During the interview Hickenlooper said that he doesn’t believe Colorado has any legal right to stop the relocation of refugees to Colorado. Hickenlooper said that safety should be the first concern. A clearly frustrated and angry Hickenlooper exasperatedly tried to change the subject and dodged questions, and he was seemingly irritated that Coloradans were upset over his rash decision. Hickenlooper raised his voice over questions on the legality of the relocation efforts. The governor also laughed during the interview when asked about the probability of terrorism taking place in Colorado.
Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:
“We can’t forget that Hickenlooper boastfully rushed to swing open the doors to Colorado and the backlash was fierce, leading Coloradans to bombard his office, and others’, with their calls and social media activism.
“Hickenlooper has not been open with the media, and seemed clueless during his interview with KOA, exposing him as irresponsible in his rash decision to side with the Obama administration on this issue.”
