Under a new “sanctuary” law signed by Democratic Governor Jay Inslee, the police in Washington state will no longer be allowed to ask about someone’s immigration status. This law’s passage expands similar policies in effect at other state agencies.
This law was signed on Wednesday, thus putting Washington alongside Oregon and California as the states with some of the nation’s strongest sanctuary policies. Inslee declared that “Our state agencies are not immigration enforcement agencies.”
The Washington Governor added, “We will not be complicit in the Trump administration’s depraved efforts to break up hard-working immigrant and refugee families.”
According to a Fox News report, police officers cannot inquire about someone’s immigration status except in limited circumstances. Republican State Senator Phil Fortunato criticized this law claiming that it is a public safety risk. The Senator said “This not only puts law enforcement at risk, it puts private citizens at risk.”
This new law expands on Inslee’s 2017 executive order that enacted similar provisions for state agencies, which mass migration supporters contended didn’t go far enough. Lena Graber, an attorney with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, said that the bill would give Washington “the strongest and most comprehensive state law on sanctuary in the country.”
A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter
On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet
The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.
Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”
Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”
But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”
Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.
Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.
Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.
As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
