Podcast: The urban agenda in this year’s legislative session
In this podcast, I talk about some of the top issues before this year’s Legislature – agriculture, energy and immigration – as the Legislature’s urban majority attempts to impose Seattle values on the state. To hear this podcast, click here.
What’s going on with illegal immigration?
The Washington Legislature this year is eroding distinctions between those who are in the country legally and those who choose to violate the law. Washington already issues drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens, restricts state agencies from cooperating with federal agents attempting to enforce the law, and has relaxed penalties for non-citizen voter registration. But this year we are seeing a number of proposals that would extend rights and benefits for illegal aliens, and make this state a ‘sanctuary’ for those who ignore federal law.
We need an immigration system that works for America and does not encourage illegal aliens to come to the state. You can read more about this year’s proposals here.
