Governor Ige fights against the unjust policies of President Trump which threaten our shared values and priorities.

  • Initiated early challenge to President Trump's travel ban and stood with our Congressional delegation against discrimination policies. Hawaiʻi was first to take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court to stop President Trump's efforts on the travel ban.
  • Objected to President Trump's discriminatory policy that targeted transgender troops. Governor Ige was supported by Rep. Tammy Duckworth, a decorated veteran born and raised in Hawai'i. Eighteen other states followed suit.
  • Joined a coalition of 16 states to file a lawsuit to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) grantees, many of whom were educated in U.S. schools and are employed by U.S. companies.
  • Joined 17 states in suing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos for rescinding the "Borrower Rule" aimed at protecting students from predatory sexual assaults.
  • Supported state law that committed Hawai'i as first state to abide by the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Called attention to the continued need for Title IX programs in our public schools and college campuses, in honor of the late Rep. Patsy Mink who was the original champion of Title IX.
  • Stands with our congressional delegation against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
  • Stands against proposed tax reforms that will hurt the poor and our shrinking middle class.
