About the message:

This mailer from super PAC Senate Majority Fund says Republican Senate candidate Christine Jensen will "fight to stop dangerous sanctuary city policies that put our families at risk," claiming that those here illegally who commit crimes are released from jail.

This Washington Post fact check notes that the city of Denver notifies immigration authorities when they are about to release someone from jail who has an immigration hold, offering a 48-hour window to pick up the individual.

Jensen faces Democratic Rep. Jessie Danielson for an open Senate seat in Jefferson County.
