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.
