The following is a statement from Latino Civic Alliance:
State and community leaders are asking Governor Inslee to remove Department of Licensing (DOL) Director Pat Kohler from her cabinet post. State-wide call to action events are scheduled Tuesday, April 17th outside DOL Offices demanding the DOL Director’s removal. Under her leadership, DOL failed to protect Washington residents’ privacy and put thousands at risk of identification, detention, and deportation. Leaders call for new leadership that restores public confidence and protects the rights and data of all Washington residents. For years, DOL allowed Dept. of Homeland Security access to Washingtonians’ data until The Seattle Times exposed this collaboration and partnership in January 2018.
