A: No, that is discrimination based upon alienage. This is a violation of your civil rights. First, work with the State of Colorado. This is the website to file a civil rights complaint with Colorado.

Due to Congressional decisions to cut funding, you may have trouble getting the attention of U. S. Department of Civil Rights. However, I recommend that you go to this website and seek assistance, because this is a violation of Federal, and likely State Law.

Perhaps, you should complain to the media with a consumer watchdog journalist on one of the television stations. The journalist may be able to intervene and provide assistance, as well.
