Washington state Governor Jay Inslee recently signed an executive order, ordering Washington state employees to not cooperate with President Trump’s executive orders—an executive order to ignore executive orders from anyone else, as it were (I know, confusing isn’t it?).
Inslee signed his executive order a day after lawyers for a so-called “Dreamer” arrested by ICE earlier this month again asked a court to release him immediately. The person involved, Daniel Ramirez Medina, 23, who was brought to the country from Mexico when he was 7, has admitted gang ties and a judge has previously refused to release him after the Dept. of Homeland Security had detained him.
Yet Inslee sees this as an example of the type of person who needs protection rather than the type of person from whom we need protection.
