Feb 23, 2017
2/23/17 Gov. Jay Inslee signed an executive order today affirming and clarifying Washington state?s policies for state agencies who provide services to immigrant Washingtonians.
"Washington has always been and will always remain a place that welcomes and embraces people of all faiths, all nationalities and all orientations," Inslee said. "This executive order makes clear that Washington will not be a willing participant in promoting or carrying out mean-spirited policies that break up families and compromise our national security and community safety."
Inslee signed Executive Order 17-1 Thursday morning alongside a crowd of Washington state-elected officials.
