As immigrant families are being separated at historic rates and the fight to stop deportations heats up nationally, it’s more important than ever to challenge those responsible.  On May 1st, we hit the streets of Milwaukee to say “Not One More!” Not one more family torn apart. Not one more child separated from their parents due to inhumane and unjust laws.
This year we’ll march from Voces de la Frontera to the Milwaukee County Courthouse, where without identifying themselves as federal agents, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers have been detaining people appearing in court for minor traffic violations or family court, and often processing them for deportation.
These raids are jeopardizing people’s hopes of legalizing, and undermining public safety by creating fear and distrust of law enforcement. voces_mayday spanish web
On Thursday May 1st, diverse groups representing labor, elected officials, public education, faith, civil rights, LGBTQ allies, and more will unite in solidarity with these demands.
