here illegally for sanctuary. whether trump can pull millions of funding inden rr chooses to-- denver chooses to ignore the law. these denver police officers hope to make a bigger point. a first thanksgiving for some in colorado. the mystery message that can only be seen from the sky. who is marty? we will find out, next. 2 men, 2 promises, president elect donald trump says he will cities that ignore immigration law and deport people in the country illegally. mayor hancock says this is a welcoming city safe for people who are here illegally. here is the conflict and the question. for people here who illegally who live outside denver? perhaps where local leaders would welcome deportations, is mayor hancock telling them to come to denver for sanctuary?
denver has been a welcoming, inclusive city. we are the city we are today in terms of our inclusivity, in terms of economic vibrancy, in terms of being one of the most welcoming places in the country to live. we always encourage people to follow law. that is not what we are saying. what we say is we are not going to needlessly detain people when there is not a lawful warrant for us to detain individuals and we won't needlessly break up families when not necessary, it become as greater burden on all funding from sanctuary cities is more of a threat if he can get congress behind him. that is what we heard from metro state political professor, norman. he took us back to the speed limit fight of the 80s. >> the federal government used its spending power to tell states that they had to adopt 55 miles an hour speed limit. if you didn't, you lost some of your federal high way funds,
said congress has the spending power and if it is legit, you can't cut somebody off completely, but you you, in a sense, punish someone for not doing what you expect them to do? the answer we have kind of, on the books, is yes. >> mayor hancock told us it is too early to tell if trump is serious about the funding threat. the mayor did say that he is not in favor of a san francisco-style declaration that would order denver city workers not immigration agents. nation wide there have been a wave of hate crime reports since the election, some will be bogus. the owner of a car that was spray pranted admit-- spray painted admits he did it himself. there are elements of hate warming to the surface. the vandalism of a tran gender woman's suv with swastikas and slurs.
>> you don't think it would really happen in denver, denver is not that kind of town. and then immediately followed up by fear and shock. i come upon my car and see the back of it and see the spray paint on it. it just-- it is utter shock. it was very specific to the transcommunity. so i am assuming that it is someone who knew of me s had been watching and knew what was going on with me. you become fearful. that helped me through, unfortunately i didn't see who put them there, i had left to go inside, come back out and see in there. it is an immediate boost to your spirit. it helps, people see and disagree with it. not everybody is like that. i still love you.
that is driving you. we all have fear. time to get over the fear. love each other. we keep fighting. we don't back down. we keep showing who we are. we keep showing the strength and unity in numbers. we keep showing the love. we love everybody. that is how you beat hate. >> talking about the election and its impacts is how we will move forward together, not respecting people with opposing beliefs. that is why next is airing an hour long special friday, a town hall version of our elect just talk segment to bring together coloradans who all agree on one thing: civil discourse. >> i am a registered democrat. i would vote against a democrat if i believed in a different candidate. so i don't just necessarily vote because i am a democrat for the democratic party. do you do that just because you are a republican?
go with him right or wrong? >> there are going to be people that disagrie with me and that is-- disagree and that is fine. that is why i love this country. we can disagree. >> rather than continue in the, you know, tug of war we have going on, we need to sit down, lets just talk and come together. >> social media, last night what i want to know, i would like to know why you think that things will be better, what it is exactly and let without insulting the other party. which ever side you are on. do it without an insult or name calling. and i have to say, i lost a friend. >> we are visibly divided nation, in fear of people and their response to all of this, there are protests and beating people because i voted for somebody. that is what scares me.
this and listen. and i believe that you can't necessarily change anybody in one conversation. i wouldn't be out here trying to change her opinion. but i am glad that we can try to work together on our opinion. >> our next hour-long special, lets just talk, friday night 6:00-7:00 p.m., we will be on tv6:00-6:30 and then continue the conversation on 9news.com. the next time a prescription drug company tells you to ask your particular drug, consider asking that doctor if he or she took money from that drug company. we look at the side effects of a hundred drug price increases, chris vanderveen has this advice. >> reporter: their complaints resonate. >> it is unconchinable. >> i have no choice. >> reporter: some wonder if even their doctors need to be more concerned. >> i don't think anybody in the system is taking into account the patient's financial health. >> reporter: the side effects
has a reason or 2 or a hundred thousand reasons, head to openpaymentsdata.cms.gov. there is a link on our website. plug in your doctor's name and you will see if your doctor accepted payments from the pharmaceutical industry. here is why you should care. in 2013 we found 8 of big players in pharmaceuticals handed out 64 million and change 2014, the give aways hit 152 million. last year 178 million. payments to doctors nearly tripled in 3 years. so try it yourself. be warned, you just might not like what you find. >> chris has been saying, dollars to doctors doesn't imply wrong doing but it is worth considering. chris told our entire newsroom to go to the website the next time we interview a doctor about a drug so we can be more transparent in our reporting.
something officers families which we would remember every month-- wish we would remember every month of the year. the chance to share thanksgiving dinner for the first time. a sign usually visible only if flying over the front range. >> we did a double take at the computer, am i crazy? or is it written thon building?
