News Tribune: State lawmakers talk about immigration, raids in Washington

The News Tribune posted a snippet of the press conference held earlier today in response to the recent presidential executive order:

Democratic state lawmakers comment on the Daniel Ramirez Medina case that has been the subject of protests at the Tacoma detention center. Ramirez Medina, whose lawyers say has no criminal convictions, was taken into custody after a federal raid to deport his father, who Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say is a “prior-deported felon.”
