7 Colorado Republicans join immigration push

DENVER - Seven big Republican donors from Colorado are among the hundreds of leading business groups and GOP donors that have called for action on immigration legislation.

The Colorado names came on letters sent Tuesday to increase pressure on the House GOP as lawmakers prepare to leave Washington for a five-week summer recess.
Two letters were released separately. One signed by more than 400 leading businesses, chambers of commerce and others, and the second by around 100 GOP donors.
Both framed the immigration debate in economic terms as majority House Republicans are debating how to move forward with immigration legislation.
The Colorado donors were Charlie P. Gallagher, Charlie McNeil, Larry A. Mizel, Bruce Payne, Doug Robinson, Matt Stava and Marilyn Ware. The Coloradans also wrote to the state's four GOP congressmen.
