Inslee signs executive order protecting rights, services for Washingtonian immigrants
WA Governor’s Office
371

“ Inslee’s executive order does not conflict with efforts by state or federal officials to uphold the law. U.S. law set forth by the U.S. Supreme Court in Arizona v. United States in 2012 upheld that state and local law enforcement agencies are generally prohibited from arresting people solely for violation of civil immigration laws.”

Someone with a brain may want to go back and check the results of that case. The SC held that a state could not pass a law calling for local law enforcement to arrest someone on just a immigration charge because that pre-empted federal law. AKA, a state cannot ignore federal immigration law.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
