In the rush of coverage of officials on all sides visiting the southern border to investigate the family separations by federal immigration agents that have dominated the headlines for over a month now, we’d be remiss if we didn’t give a nod to Colorado House Speaker Crisanta Duran–who arrived in Texas with her message to affected families on her…well, not sleeve exactly:
I’m headed to the border w/ @votolatino @NALEO & others to demand the immediate reunification of families! #Coloradans do care. Follow along for updates. #KeepFamiliesTogether #EndFamilyDetention #StopSeparation #coleg #copolitics #cogov pic.twitter.com/ZeYdibd2NF

Take that, Melania Trump! Seriously, if a local clothing shop were to whip up a line of these jackets for sale, we know people who would buy them. We can’t imagine a finer local and woke fashion statement. And to our state’s first first Latina Speaker of the House, brava.
This is an image the the overwhelming majority of Coloradans will be proud to see.
