We will be exercising more than just our vocal chords at our Resist Trump Tuesday Rally on April 17th. As we do every week, we will rally at 11:45AM at the Federal Building. Then we will march to the Dept. of Licensing offices at 205 Spring Street in solidarity with our allies in the immigrant community who have organized a sign waiving protest outside DOL offices demanding the resignation/firing of DOL Director Pat Kohler.
Seattle Indivisible has joined in calling for the ousting of Dir. Kohler upon learning in January that the DOL had been regularly reporting immigrants applying for drivers licenses to ICE in violation of Gov. Inslee's Exec. Order 17-01. This serious breach of trust has lead to deportation efforts and terrified our immigrant neighbors who now fear utilizing simple services like applying for a driver's license.
Let's show up in force on April 17th to say "NO, not in Washington State--we mean it when we say immigrants are welcome here." Details of the sign waiving protest, and suggested sign messaging can be found on the Facebook Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/193752467898485??ti=ia
