Democrats support state lawsuit against Trump Muslim ban
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 30th, 2017
Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski offered the following statement in support of the lawsuit filed by Attorney General Bob Ferguson to invalidate the immigration executive order filed by President Donald Trump:
“In times like these, when unjust and racist attacks on our friends, family, and neighbors are coming from the highest office in our country, it’s all the more important that we stand up for human rights and equality. I want to thank Governor Jay Inslee and Attorney General Bob Ferguson for their leadership and for making Washington State the first in the nation to file a lawsuit against Trump and his illegal Muslim ban.
"I especially want to thank the thousands of people in Washington and the millions of people across the country who have marched in the streets to resist Trump and show solidarity. This is truly a people’s movement.
“The law is the law, and the constitution is the constitution. Donald Trump needs to recognize this and roll back his Illegal and unconstitutional plans, or he’ll soon be losing in court. The American values of justice, decency, and equality are stronger than this racist executive.”
