El Chalate at 8119 East Colfax and Uinta Street was started by Marta Leon 10 years ago. She had TPS at the time and says her dream of a restaurant wouldn't have been possible without that temporary permit. Now, she's a permanent resident and says about 90 percent of her customers have TPS. She's afraid the decision to remove these benefits for her clients will be detrimental to her little business. http://www.9news.com/mobile/article/news/colorado-businesses-stand-to-lose-after-200000-salvadorans-in-us-ordered-to-leave/73-506664240

    Colorado businesses stand to lose after 200,000 Salvadorans in US ordered to leave
    An estimated 200,000 Salvadorans live in the United States with Temporary Protected Status, or TPS. Now, all 200,000 of them have been ordered to leave. For Colorado businesses big and small, this decision could be detrimental. TPS is a temporary benefit for people in the country who cannot go back to their homeland because of political turmoil or an environmental disaster.

Colfax Avenue Celebrates 150 years in 2018 with a wake for Schuyler Colfax

When gold was discovered in Denver in 1858, scores of miners came West looking for the Mother Lode. Colfax Avenue was the major artery linking them to the riches of the Rockies. Originally called "Golden Road", as well as Grand Avenue, Colfax Avenue had its name changed in 1868 to honor of Schuyler Colfax (pronounced SKY-LAR), a powerful Indiana congressman and Speaker of the House of Representatives at that time.

Denver Police Department honors Top Cops In District 2! Officers Simeon Codo and Jacqueline Velasquez contacted several people for trespassing on the Airway Motel property located at 8339 East Colfax and Verbena St. One of the women gave the officers information on a man she knew to be a Crip gang member, who was allegedly dealing crack cocaine and other illegal narcotics from the motel. The woman told officers the man had several active warrants for his arrest and several guns at the motel. Codo and Velasquez identified the suspect and with assistance from Gang Unit officers, took the suspect into custody without incident. Officers Derek Hancock and Michael James responded to assist. After further investigation of the suspect’s rooms at the motel, officers recovered four handguns, several baggies of suspected crack cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and synthetic marijuana. Great job by our District 2 officers!!!
