Milwaukee, WI -  On Thursday, in a symbolic act the Milwaukee County Board voted 12-6 in favor of Pro-Immigrant and Anti-Hate Resolution 16-738 as a stand against President Donald Trump's, aka, "Trumpnazi" bullying threat tactic of penalizing Sanctuary Counties by withholding federal funding, which is unconstitutional. The resolution recognizes the dignity and contributions of diverse communities in Milwaukee County that face intensified threats from the new Presidential adminisrtation, including immigrants, African-Americans, Muslims, LGBTQ people, and others, according to Voces de la Frontera,  an imigrant and work rights organization.
Also, the resolution will urge Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. to not enroll his department in the controversial 287g program, which would deputize local law enforcement as immigration agents.
