Keep Washington Working

Designed to help minimize the amount of deportations in the State of Washington, the Keep Washington Working Act 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
