Nigel Farage, co-founder of the UK Independence Party and leader of the Brexit movement to withdraw the United Kingdom from the European Union, told Colorado Politics it could be time for President Donald Trump to address the American people in order to counteract what he called “pure obstructionism” by establishment forces in the wake of last year’s global populist wave.

Polis has been a strong advocate of immigration reform. The program was proposed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
