CD09: Waldo Benefidez misleads regarding Denver's immigration policy

Waldo Benevidez, candidate for City Council in Council District 9, has spouted off on "The Peter Boyles Show."

Benevidez hasn't raised a dime for his candidacy (as shown in the April 5 candidate disclosure statements) but apparently is important enough figure to win an invitation to Peter Boyles radio program.

As he is wont to do, Boyles again fostered the myth that Denver is a "sanctuary city" for illegal immigration, and Benevidez followed along.

The below quote from the conversation indicates the obfuscation:
BOYLES: Do you think Denver, Colorado, is a sanctuary city?

BENAVIDEZ: It is a sanctuary city. I remember back during the Webb administration when they had a -- the city council met and passed an ordinance regarding that.
