John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Colorado Governor Signs ‘Sanctuary’ Bill Into Law

Legislation signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis makes it much more difficult for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to apprehend suspected illegal immigrants.

House Bill 1124 was signed into law by Polis on Tuesday. The new law bars local law enforcement from arresting or detaining a suspected illegal alien solely on the basis of an ICE request. The legislation also prohibits officers from providing a suspected illegal immigrant’s personal information to ICE, and it requires Colorado police to read illegals their Miranda rights when coordinating an ICE interview.

The new law serves as a major setback for federal immigration authorities operating in Colorado.

ICE detainers are requests made by agents to local law enforcement, asking them to detain inmates for up to 48 hours longer than their release date if the individual is suspected to be living in the country illegally. The extra two days gives authorities time to decide if the person should be deported or not.

Immigration-rights advocates and other supporters celebrated the signing of the controversial bill.

“Thank you to all of the people who helped to make this a reality and advocate for our immigrant community,” wrote Colorado Democratic state Rep. Adrienne Benavidez, the sponsor of the bill, in a Facebook post on Tuesday. “Everyone should have the right to safely and confidently interact with law enforcement without fearing that they may be turned in to the federal agencies.”

“It is thrilling. We don’t have words to express what this feels [like],” stated Maria Mercedes Garcia of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, according to The Denver Post. “All of our hard work was worth it.”

The sanctuary bill wasn’t the only immigration-related legislation Polis signed into law on Tuesday.

Polis — who made history as the first openly gay man in the U.S. to be elected governor — also approved Senate Bill 30, which gives immigrants the ability to ask a judge to remove their guilty pleas if they were not informed beforehand that a guilty verdict could effect their immigration status.

ICE did not immediately provide The Daily Caller News Foundation with a comment.
