Among those cases is Washington State’s successful challenge to the Trump Administration’s proposed rollback of protections offered under DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival.

Ferguson also took part in a question and answer session during his presentation. While in town, Ferguson also addressed the eventing meeting of the Ellensburg Rotary Club.
