Bleeding heart liberal governor defies Feds

The State of Texas is making moves to eliminate sanctuary cities within the Lone Star State. Washington State, on the other hand, is taking an opposite approach: their governor has effectively declared the entire state a sanctuary state.

In an executive order signed on Thursday, Gov. Jay Inslee (DEMOCRAT) prohibited any state agency from detaining an illegal immigrant at the request of federal officials. It also prohibits the use of state resources for the creation of a database or registry for people of a particular religion. The state will, however, continue to honor federal arrest warrants.

In a press conference, Inslee said that he did not think that Washington State should take part in "[...] promoting or carrying out mean-spirited policies that break up families and compromise our national security and, importantly, our community safety.”

Washington State has seen an increase in the number of illegal immigrants over the past few years. About half of the state's estimated 250,000 undocumented persons are from Mexico, and an additional 20,000 are from China. Source: Townhall and american Action News

The Constitution says the Fed Gov
is in charge of immigration...

I get you don't like it and you 'can'
change it properly by an amendment.

More federal money for the 49 other states. Time to perp walk the Governor when someone gets killed by an illegal in his state.

Sounds like some states, maybe like CA, WA, and CO will end up seceding the union someday. It is bound to happen someday soon. So many states do not want to follow federal law or enforce anymore and want their banana republics. I wonder who will be first to secede.
