Waukesha, WI - An estimated 4.5K to 5K of Latinos and supporters including children marched on May 1st from Culter Park to the Waukesha County Courthouse to protest the implementation of 287(g) ICE enforcement program to identify undocumented immigrants processed by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) in Wisconsin, according H. Nelson Goodson from Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) and Raul Ventura Ortiz from Radio Latina 5.0.
The 287(g) ICE program is expected to be implemented in late July or early August, but today the WCSO is cooperating with ICE and accepting ICE detainer requests, according to their application with ICE.
Waukesha County is the 76 applicant nationwide to apply the 287(g) program and the first County in the State of Wisconsin to be accepted by ICE under the immigration enforcement program.
