SEATTLE, WA – Tens of thousands of people turned out on a rainy Saturday for the March For Science in Seattle. The event was a held in conjunction with dozens of other marches for science around the world on Earth Day to show support for issues ranging from climate change to how politicians handle scientific matters. The march was likely the largest in Seattle since the Women’s March in January, which attracted over 110,000 people.

Gov. Jay Inslee on Thursday morning signed an executive order declaring Washington a “welcoming jurisdiction,” spelling out that state resources won’t be used to support federal immigration efforts, except where required by law.
[Ed.: It’s something we’d always suspected, but now this officially makes Gov. Jay Inslee a complete moron. What happened to the rule of law Governor?
Governor, we’d like to see you try to immigrate to another country illegally and see how you’re treated. It would get you out of our hair and show you that the sensible things President Trump is undertaking – which should have been done in previous administrations – is right, prudent and just.
Why, in a country where we can’t pay our bills the way it is, should those who come here illegally be left to subsist in the margins, live in shanty towns, take from our social services when they get sick and not pay into the systems the way taxpaying citizens and legal immigrants do? This is why people voted for Trump. They’re tired of falling wages, rampant property crime and drug-addled homeless youth sleeping in public places and nobody willing to take a stand against it. Granted these are not necessarily all immigrant-related, but they are all things the Democrat Party is actively supporting or abetting. You are an absolute disgrace!]
