Curt Cerveny, CQ, a manager with Defend Colorado Now, puts on a pouty-face while he holds 9,000 of the 32,000 signatures the group has collected so far, but was set back by the Colorado Supreme Court in Denver Monday June 12, 2006. "We got punched and we need to keep on fighting," Cerveny says. The group plans to continue collecting the signatures and appeal the State Supreme Court's ruling. " We have to keep this issue alive to show the people in Washington(D.C.) and the Colorado State House that immigration reform is important to the people of this state," says Cerveny. The Colorado Supreme Court ruled 5-2 that a proposed ballot initiative, by Defend Colorado Now, cannot appear on the November ballot because they say it violates a state constitutional requirement that initiatives deal with only one subject. The Ballot initiative would prohibit illegal immigrants in Colorado from receiving all taxpayer-funded public services except those required by the federal government - K-12 education, emergency medical care and assistance in the event of a public safety emergency medical care and assistance in the event of a public safety emergency.
