Lt. Governor’s Statement on Governor Inslee’s Executive Order to Protect Immigrants
 
“I commend Governor Inslee’s push to ensure honest, hard-working residents of our state are not unfairly targeted and separated from their families. This executive order affirms that Washington remains ahead of the curve in working to create an inclusive, welcoming environment for all who seek the diverse array of opportunities in our wonderful state.
 
My parents were immigrants to this country, and so I know firsthand how powerful the promise of American inclusion can be. We in Washington must always work to strengthen that commitment—and that is what Governor Inslee and I will continue doing in the months and years to come.”

— Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib
