How Washington state became the epicenter of resistance to Trump’s agenda

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, right, talks to reporters with Gov. Jay InsleeAs President Trump weathered his first two weeks in office, a surprising number of roadblocks to his agenda cropped up from another Washington, more than 2,500 miles away.

Acting swiftly and with a united front, leaders from the Evergreen State have marshaled a powerful resistance to Trump’s administration — the combination of a left-leaning populace, outspoken Democratic lawmakers, legal efforts spearheaded by a resolute attorney general and support from several Seattle-area tech companies wary of Trump’s policies.

On Jan. 27, Trump signed orders not only to suspend admission of all refugees into the United States for 120 days but also to implement “new vetting measures” to screen out “radical Islamic terrorists.” Refugee entry from Syria, however, would be suspended indefinitely, and all travel by citizens of Syria and six other nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen — would be suspended for 90 days. Trump also said he would give priority to Christian refugees over those of other religions, according to the Christian Broadcasting Network.

The ban triggered massive protests at airports around the country, including at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. On the afternoon of Jan. 28, Washington’s governor, Jay Inslee, and several other elected officials blasted the hastily implemented travel ban in a news conference held at the airport, before thousands descended upon it in protest.

  • Tiger says:

    This is how they deal with those who believe them, try to talk to them and show them any consideration. An everyday activity in the ME.

    I don’t see any of these movie stars offering their homes to refugees. A few Somalian men would gladly occupy a stars home and show his appreciation to them by raping them. This is what comes from a nation filled with Daniel Pearls. People who don’t understand what Islam is and wants to negotiate and love them. Remember Lynch saying all they need is love. RIGGGGGTTTTT.

    Pearl trusted them, wanted their side of the story and they cut his head off slowly, verrrrrrrrrrrrry slowly with a pocket knife. I saw the video long ago and many others of the decapitation video craze they went through til they realized hey this isn’t making us any friends.

    Not a pretty sight and I always said when activated as did my fellow soldiers, the people need to know and see the truth.

      You are right Tiger! A lot of these Hollywood movie stars who own several homes had never offered hospitality for refugees.
      They are big empty mouths without substance and honesty.
      They are just parasites.
      I thought they are going to move to Canada.
      Really? When?

      1. Tiger says:

        They will never leave.

          Unfortunately not. They are a bunch of hypocrites!

    Send all the refugees to Washington and California. If the people are so eager to have them in the country we should settle them in those states.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Trump blocking these gutter rats had nothing to do with these protest, it was Soros and the Dem. party that said they were going to make Trump’s days as President miserable, and now this judge that supports the BLM and appointed by BUSH that hates Trump, is causing trouble now as well! I have a feeling that somebody will pay dearly!!

  • Bob says:

    We should grant all of the refugees sanctuary in Washington State and California. Just extend the wall up the west coast. They could stay there until vetted.

    1. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      Heck! Why not give California, Washington State and Oregon back to Mexico. Then Mexico would gladly help us build that wall..

      1. Bob says:

        That would certainly change the popular vote in Trump’s favor!

  • chocopot says:

    Anyone who thinks those protests were “spontaneous” must also believe in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny. Time to go after Soros once and for all and to crush these anti-American Leftist scum.
