ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

information from King County Council

Six members of the King County Council are releasing the following joint statement regarding the President’s unlawful Executive Actions on immigration. Those voting in support of the measure were Council Chair Joe McDermott and Councilmembers Dave Upthegrove, Claudia Balducci, Jeanne Kohl-Welles, Larry Gossett, and Rod Dembowski.

“The First Amendment is perfectly clear—the United States is a country that values freedom of religion,” said proponents of the motion. “King County is home to nearly 450,000 foreign-born residents. These are friends, neighbors, and coworkers who enrich our communities and lives every day.”

“The President’s actions are unlawful, discriminatory, and seek to undermine the core, shared values of all Americans. We will continue to fight until our nation’s leader agrees to restore the right to Due Process and Equal Protection enshrined in the Constitution.”
