Gov. Jay Inslee has spoken out against these orders, pledging that Washington will remain a state that welcomes people of all faiths, nationalities and orientations. The governor is supporting a suit filed Jan. 30 by state Attorney General Bob Ferguson to challenge the constitutionality of some of the president’s orders.
