Keep Washington Working

We celebrate the signing of the Keep Washington Working Act on May 21, 2019 which disentangles the government of the State from the Federal government for immigration enforcement purposes. It effectively guarantees that he State will not play an active part in helping remove people from the United States. Initially proposed last year by Senator Wellman, the bill is well supported among the immigrant rights community. Learn more

Real ID

Have you been issued a “Federal Limits Apply” Drivers License or ID Card from the Department of Licensing and want to let more about the restrictions surrounding its use?  Learn more on our Real ID page.
