Boulder's City Council will discuss whether to accept a resolution from its Human Relations Commission that condemns Arizona for its new immigration law and continues a ban on non-essential city travel to the state.
The City Council on Tuesday is expected to discuss the resolution, which says that Arizona's law will create racial profiling and threatens "basic notions of decency."
Arizona's law takes effect July 29 if it survives legal challenges. It requires police to question people about their immigration status while enforcing other laws if there's reason to suspect someone is in the country illegally.
Boulder City Manager Jane Brautigam ordered a halt on "non-essential" city travel to Arizona in May and the new resolution asks city officials to continue the ban.
