Executive: Ordinance creating Immigrant and Refugee Task Force 'an important step' to expanding access to opportunities


Executive Dow Constantine today released the following statement after King County took steps toward creating an Immigrant and Refugee Task Force:


“King County’s growth has been driven by immigration for the past 25 years, and one-quarter of county residents speak a language other than English at home. Yet many immigrants and refugees don't have the same access to opportunities. This ordinance moves us a step closer to ensuring that every new resident has a voice in our government.”
