Wisconsin Republicans Introduce Discriminatory, Anti-Immigrant Bill in the Senate
MILWAUKEE - On Friday morning, Republican State Senators introduced a companion bill to the anti-immigrant bill AB190 that seeks to turn public employees including law enforcement into an arm of Trump’s deportation machine. The bill is the same so-called “anti-sanctuary” bill that was defeated by the Day without Latinos and Immigrants general strike of February 2016. Anti-immigrant politicians are pushing similar legislation across the country. Texas recently passed the same bill, leading to mass protest and the threatened boycott of the state.
Voces de la Frontera is Wisconsin's leading immigrant rights group - a grassroots organization that believes power comes from below and that people can overcome injustice to build a better world.
