Map: Colorado Counties and ICE Detainers

Is your county sheriff still honoring detainer requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement?

Green = counties that will no longer honor ICE detainer requests

The ACLU of Colorado sent letters to every sheriff in the state calling into question the legal authority to detain people for up to 6 days at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Sheriffs from around the state have responded by announcing that they will no longer honor ICE detainer requests.

We’ve put together an interactive map showing where Colorado counties stand on ICE detainers.  We will continue to update the map as more counties refuse to honor ICE requests.

Detenciones por inmigración – Hoja informativa



  • One year ago, thousands of Coloradans marched in a historic display of resistance. At the ACLU of Colorado we carried that spirit throughout the year, fighting on many fronts for civil liberties. We won’t stop now.

  • By canceling DACA, Trump has put 800,000 young people at risk of losing their jobs and being deported from the only country they know as home. Passing the bipartisan Dream Act would protect them. We asked four Dreamers why the Dream Act is important to them and their future.

  • James Fisher spoke at the ACLU of Colorado Bill of Rights Dinner about how he and the ACLU are working together to stop the criminalization of poverty for the thousands of Coloradans who are trapped in debtors’ prisons.

  • Our membership has quadrupled in the last six months, making it possible to do more than ever to protect civil rights and civil liberties in Colorado. Thank you to all our new members, supporters, and donors, and the ones who’ve been with us for years.
