The newly passed "8010.32.14 Immigrant Retention Act and Healthcare Depletion Bill" will convert all National Forests into full functioning communities that emulate, in every way, Mexico. The state has allocated over $3 Million in new Cocaine processing facilities, and foresters mounted on horseback have started etching in smuggling routes through the woods into the surrounding communities such as Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Issaquah, and Vancouver.
"We strongly feel this bill will bring this state closer knowing we are making a home away from home for the estimated 4 billion Mexican transplants that we anticipate moving here" said Sam Hunt (D - Thurston County). "I think those opposed to the bill will soon see the vast improvements we expect" Dawn Morrell (D - Pierce County), co-author of the bill, added.
Governor Inslee released a statement to the media today leaving some to question his motives. "I intend on signing the bill into law this week, and we have brought in about 100,000 Mexicans already to start the process of clearing the forest lands to make room for the new huts. We have no compensation allotment for this work, so the tax payers should be happy with this legislation".
Ray Ford, a local hunter from Teanaway, gave us his opinion; "Well, I am completely opposed to this, but I'm trying to keep an open mind. My Elk may be gone, so my hunts are going to shift is all." When asked if he was implying he would be hunting the Mexicans he offered no comment and chased us away at gun point. The newly constructed 10'x10' cages gave us a clear picture of his intentions though. Our thoughts go out to the family of Robbie MacEntire - he was our sound recorder who was shot in the leg. We left him behind as distraction. His whereabouts are currently unknown, but he is feared dead.
Local hunters and outdoor enthusiasts have been protesting head to toe with a social rights protest to protest the hunters lead by Seattle Council Member Kshama Sawant. Sawant released a press statement yesterday stating "No government should be able to own millions of acres of lush green forest and not be willing to make it desolate and terrible to make the Mexicans feel at home" she later added "If the hunters want to come protest, let them come, we are ready. We have recently received a donation of new pots and pans we intend on pounding in protest against them." Sawant recently made national news as she protested the Israeli/Hamas conflict by organizing a rally where hundreds beat pots and pans.
The outcome of this bill is yet to be decided, but one thing is for certain - Washington doesn't feel like Washington anymore.
