Milwaukee, WI - On Sunday, Kristine De la Cruz confirmed that she had called her husband's Wisconsin Department of Corrections Probation Officer Minerva Santiago-Gomez during the incident on Monday, September 23, 2019. De la Cruz says, that Santiago-Gomez had confirmed on the cell phone call that she hadn't issued a probation violation hold for her husband yet during the incident with police and U.S. rogue ICE agents in the Southside of Milwaukee. But, later Santiago-Gomez told De la Cruz that she issued a probation hold for De la Cruz-Espinosa for driving and she could also add additional violations without specifying what were the violations. 
De la Cruz also told Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) on Sunday that Santiago-Gomez's Wisconsin Department of Corrections (WIDOC) probation Supervisor had informed De la Cruz when contacted, that Santiago-Gomez's supervisor wasn't aware that Santiago-Gomez had issued a hold for De la Cruz-Espinosa, which the supervisor had to approve such a hold, according to De la Cruz.
So, why didn't MPD officers  from Milwaukee Police Station District 2 processed De la Cruz-Espinosa for an alleged probation violation and kept him detained in state custody until it was later determined, if he actually violated his conditions for probation? Also, why did police decide to immediately turned De la Cruz-Espinoza to U.S. rogue ICE agents who apparently had no judicial warrant for his arrest.
De la Cruz says, that to date,  she hasn't gotten any information why the WIDOC probation officer decided to place a hold on De la Cruz-Espinosa and if, Santiago-Gomez authorized police to turn De la Cruz-Espinosa to ICE agents.
One thing for sure, the De la Cruz family video recorded inside the vehicle shows De la Cruz-Espinosa in the back seat of the truck when taken into custody by police and not by ICE agents. U.S. ICE rogue agents had arrived first at the scene where the vehicle the De la Cruz family was in when parked and a police officer later passed by and was flagged by an ICE agent to help them take De la Cruz-Espinosa into custody, since they didn't have a judicial warrant for his arrest, according to video footage by members of Voces de la Frontera and the De la Cruz family.
On September 26, 2019, Newsweek reported that Robert Guadian, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Field Director in Chicago had said on a statement to them that, "To be clear, ICE does not ask local law enforcement agencies to enforce immigration law," Guadian said. "ICE called for MPD assistance, as we would any local law enforcement agency, when the situation appeared to escalate to ensure the safety of everyone involved." But in this case in Milwaukee, an MPD officer was used to illegally reach inside the vehicle through a partially open window and unlock the vehicle's locked doors without a warrant and De la Cruz was forced out of the truck by an officer, which an officer during a video recorded at the scene says that De la Cruz-Espinosa was arrested for a probation violation, which had just been entered in a computer at the scene of the incident when there was no active probation violation hold for De la Cruz at the time and then police turned him over to ICE custody. MPD officers from District Station 2, apparently managed to arrest him on a frivolous state misdemeanor probation violation hold to coverup their illegal acts.
Milwaukee police officers involved in the incident that including a K-9 dog unit from Milwaukee Police Station District 2 has certainly created a backlash from the Latino community in the Southside of Milwaukee and has generated distrust of local police officers in the undocumented community of color that actually pays their salaries as taxpayers.
HNNUSA found no court order documented on record in the De la Cruz-Espinosa case by a Milwaukee County judge authorizing that if he was found to violate any conditions of his probation case for a state misdemeanor conceal carry conviction, should De la Cruz-Espinosa be turned over to ICE for deportation proceedings without any due process in the state case.
De la Cruz-Espinosa has been in the U.S. for 17 years and has been married for 15 years and has three daughters ages 14, 13 and 11.

Milwaukee,  WI - The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission members scheduled to review police Standard Operating Procedure 130 ( https://bit.ly/2kXkXAp ) canceled a public hearing on Thursday, as members of Voces de la Frontera and allies held a protest and rally against the Milwaukee Police collaboration with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which triggered a backlash from the Latino community when on Monday, Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa, 38, was illegally detained by rogue ICE agents and briefly arrested for an alleged probation violation in the 2100 block of S. 5th St., which at the time police arrived when flagged by an ICE agent at the scene had no such warrant issued.
No information has been released by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections about what led to the probation violation at the scene on Monday.
City of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has asked for an investigation by the Fire and Police Commission including Chief Alfonso Morales regarding De la Cruz's brief arrest by police from District 2.
According to De la Cruz family video footage that was released, a police officer reached inside the vehicle (truck) where De la Cruz and his family (wife and three daughters) were and unlocked the doors without authorization and forced him out of the vehicle and then turn him over to ICE agents as the family video recorded the incident.
De la Cruz-Espinosa was transferred to the Dodge County jail by ICE to await deportation proceedings in the case, according to his wife.

U.S. ICE Officials Apparently Lied In Statements Released After 38-year-old Undocumented Man Arrested In Milwaukee's Southside By Police For Alleged Probation Violation

The Milwaukee Police Department is now facing a backlash for getting involved in a false U.S. ICE arrest of an undocumented man in the Southside of Milwaukee on Monday.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

September 25, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Tuesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials including U.S. ICE Chicago Field Office Director Robert Guadian released the following statement to the mainstream media about Monday's arrest of undocumented Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa, 38, in Milwaukee's Southside, "Regrettably, advocacy groups and others released inaccurate and misleading information about this recent arrest in Wisconsin. To be absolutely clear, U.S. immigration law provides ICE officers the authority to arrest aliens without a judicial warrant. Falsehoods advocated by individuals and groups with their own agenda widely spreads misinformation and may inspire some to violence."
Newsweek also reported that Guadian said on a statement to them that, "To be clear, ICE does not ask local law enforcement agencies to enforce immigration law," Guadian said. "ICE called for MPD assistance, as we would any local law enforcement agency, when the situation appeared to escalate to ensure the safety of everyone involved." But in this case in Milwaukee, an MPD officer was used to illegally reach inside the vehicle through a partially open window and unlock the vehicle's locked doors without a warrant and De la Cruz was forced out of the truck by an officer, which an officer at the scene during a video recorded at the scene says was for a probation violation, which had just been entered in a computer at the scene of the incident when there was no active probation violation hold for De la Cruz and then police turned him over to ICE custody, which was another illegal act by MPD police from District Station 2, since they had apparently had him on a frivolous state misdemeanor probation violation hold to coverup their illegal acts.

Also a statement from Nicole Alberico, the U.S. ICE spokesperson says, "Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa, 38, is a citizen of Mexico who is illegally present in the U.S. On Sept. 23, 2019, deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested De la Cruz-Espinosa in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He has a criminal history that includes several criminal offenses in Wisconsin's Brown and Marathon counties.

"As ICE officers were effecting this arrest, De la Cruz-Espinosa was uncooperative and refused to exit his vehicle or follow lawfully issued commands. After some time, De la Cruz-Espinosa complied with officers. Ultimately, ICE officers arrested De la Cruz as he was stepping out of the car.

"De La Cruz-Espinosa remains in ICE custody pending the disposition of his immigration case."

Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) did a criminal record check for Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa, 38,  and found no additional criminal records in Brown and Marathon Counties in Wisconsin within the last 10 years available in CCAP as U.S. ICE claims other than the conceal carry misdemeanor conviction in April 2019, according to Wisconsin court records.
ICE officials are known to lie when incidents involving rogue ICE agents that engage in illegal activities. It seems that the Milwaukee arrest of De la Cruz-Espinosa on Monday was another illegal act, since ICE agents had no warrant for his arrest and according to Guadian, ICE agents don't need an arrest warrant to take suspected undocumented individuals into custody in a public setting.
So, according to the U.S. Constitution, federal and state court rulings, a police officer when stopping a driver for a traffic violation, the officer needs to ask permission to search a vehicle and probable cause of an infraction committed is needed, especially if the driver is driving while intoxicated, an officer can arrest an individual or if the individual has a judicial warrant for his/her arrest.
The federal court rulings and U.S. Constitutional rights for individuals should also extend to U.S. ICE agents on the field,  but according to ICE it doesn't.
In the Wisconsin case, ICE agents blocked the vehicle where De la Cruz-Espinosa and his family were in and had to flag a passing police officer to help them make an arrest. At least eight ICE agents were at the scene and multiple police officers arrived including a K-9 dog unit just to arrest De la Cruz-Espinosa on a false probation violation allegation by ICE agents, which according to a police officer who was video recorded had stated that they had just entered his probation violation on the computer.
What does it indicate?, that Milwaukee police officers at the scene were lied too by ICE agents and ICE agents needed a cop to violate the De la Cruz's family Constitutional rights by having the cop reach through the open driver's side window with his hand and unlocked the vehicle doors without permission or a judicial warrant and then took De la Cruz-Espinosa into custody.
De la Cruz-Espinosa was forced out of the vehicle (truck) by Milwaukee police and he did not voluntarily step out of the vehicle as ICE claims, according to a short video recorded by the family while inside the vehicle. Also, Guadian stated that, "Falsehoods advocated by individuals and groups with their own agenda widely spreads misinformation and may inspire some to violence", which is inaccurate and false, to date, no one has committed any act of violence against any rogue ICE agents that have been recorded committing illegal acts around the U.S. including Wisconsin.
In many cases, ICE rogue agents and police officers who engage in illegal activities and violate the Constitutional rights of people of color are not held accountable by ICE, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or U.S. Department of Justice. These rogue ICE agents and police officers found to commit illegal acts upon the very same people of color that pay their salaries should be terminated, but in many cases, ICE agents are transferred to other parts of the country without facing any accountability.

September 23, 2019

Milwaukee, WI - On Monday,  U.S. ICE with the collaboration of the Milwaukee Police Department District 2 and the use of a K-9 dog went to a Southside home near W. Becher Street and S. 5th Street around 9:22 a.m. One person was taken into custody, according to both Primitivo Torres and Tommy Molina from Voces de la Frontera.
Torres says that a Hotline tip came in to Voces de la Fronteras about ICE and police at a Southside home. Torres and Molina went to the scene and video recorded the incident. In the video Torres asked, if ICE had a search warrant and a police officer responded that that they didn't need to show the warrant.
Torres says that VDLF has the Hotline number 414-418-9409 where tips can be reported about ICE activities and raids.
Apparently, Mayor Tom Barrett has indicated in prior occassions that MPD doesn't collaborate with ICE and Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales has not taken a stand whether to continue to collaborate with ICE.
On Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 4:30 p.m., a press conference will be held at the Rotunda inside City Hall concerning MPD Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 130 concerning collaboration with ICE. Two out of three Milwaukee Fire and Police Commissioners is needed to approve or reject the SOP 130 policy. If the SOP policy proceeds, a final vote by the Fire and Police Commission will be held on October 3rd.
Torres invites the public to attend and to show their concerns about police collaboration with ICE.


Update: According to Kristine De la Cruz, her husband was seating in their vehicle when U.S. ICE agents arrived to take him into custody and wouldn't let Kristine drive away, since they didn't have a warrant for her husband, Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinoza, 38, who has been in the U.S. for at least 17 years and married to her for 15 years. As ICE agents blocked their vehicle a MPD squad drove by and stopped. Apparently, one cop reached through the driver's window and unlocked the doors and took Jose who was seating in the back seat into custody for a probation violation, according to Kristine. Kristine says that no warrant was shown when requested. Police officers took Jose into custody, but they immediately released him to ICE agents. Kristine told Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) that Jose was convicted in April 2019 after pleading no contest for carrying a conceal weapon in August 2017 (sentenced to 12 months probation), which she says was hers, but the she forgot to remove the handgun from the vehicle and when Jose was driving and later stopped by a Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputy for a traffic violation and having no driver's license. The deputy found the gun inside the vehicle, which Jose wasn't aware it was in the vehicle, according to Kristine. Jose has a 14, 13 and 11-year-old daughters. A GoFundMe account has been set up for donations to help Jose to be released on bond. ICE told Kristine that Jose will be transferred to the Dodge County Jail, while he awaits for deportation proceedings.

Kristine De la Cruz released a, "Video of Alex being arrested illegally this morning. A Milwaukee Police Officer reached in my car and unlocked the doors without a warrant."

U.S. ICE/ERO Claims That Agents Don't Need A Judicial Warrant Under 287 To Arrest Undocumented Immigrants In A Public Setting For A Civil Immigration Violation

The Field Office Directors, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) released a statement to the American public claiming that its agent don't need a judicial warrant to arrest suspected undocumented immigrants in public under the 287 Act for a civil immigration violation.

Washington, D.C. - On Thursday, September 12, 2019, the Field Office Directors, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) released a statement to the American public claiming that its agent don't need a judicial warrant to arrest suspected undocumented immigrants in public under the 287 of the Immigration and Nationality Act for a civil immigration violation. "In fact, no judge in this country has the authority to issue a warrant for a civil immigration violation. Congress, by statute, vested this authorization solely to supervisory immigration officers. Local police officers don't need a warrant when they encounter someone breaking the law in a public space, and the same holds true for ICE officers," according to the ICE/ERO statement.
ICE/ERO also claims that they don't "conduct raids or sweeps and does not operate roadblocks or checkpoints".
On the contrary, ICE agents today are considered among the most corrupt agents in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which rogue agents have violated the Constitutional rights of U.S. citizens and undocumented immigrants in many documented cases, YouTube posted videos and court filings around in the U.S. ICE agents have entered homes and buildings without warrants and a U.S. Border and Customs Protection agent has allegedly committed a murder in May 2018 without any accountability nor facing any prosecution for a homicide.
ICE agents have even used administrative warrants and detainers to detain undocumented immigrants, which have been ruled by federal courts as not legal binding. Only a warrant signed by a judicial judge is legal binding to arrest and detain a suspected undocumented immigrant.
Also, ICE agents have been caught on video breaking into a vehicle to arrest a suspected undocumented immigrant without a warrant, which is considered an illegal act, if the person inside the vehicle prohibits ICE agents without a judicial warrant to enter or search a vehicle.
In May 2019, the ACLU-TX filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Border Customs Laredo Sector including Border Patrol Agent Romualdo Barrera who has not been officially named, but has been identified as the agent that fatally shot Guatemalan immigrant Claudia Patricia Gómez González, 20, after crossing the border into the U.S. at the Rio Bravo vicinity on May 23, 2018. The lawsuit was filed by the ACLU-TX on behalf of Gilberto Gómez Vicente and Lidia González Vasquez, the parents of deceased Claudia Patricia Gómez González claiming $100M in damages. In the lawsuit filed by ACLU-TX and Kirkland & Ellis LLP, they claimed that Gómez González posed no threat to Border Patrol Agent Barrera and she was not carrying any type of weapon or anything that would be perceived as a weapon.

Here are some cases involving U.S. ICE and Customs agents and U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents committing illegal acts, making false statements, illegal entry into private property without a warrant, coercion and forcing deportation while inside a Peruvian Consulate and etc. without any Congressional oversight. https://bit.ly/2lV51yo

September 12, 2019

Milwaukee, WI - El Fuego Restaurant, which is a popular Mexican food restaurant apparently has been displaying the Mexican flag under the U.S. flag in one flag pole. According to the flag etiquette, all flags from nations should be displayed at the same level position.
Local businessman, Jose Aviles who goes by El Fuego Restaurant, 909 W. Layton Ave. everyday and recently saw the Mexican flag being displayed under the U.S. flag contacted Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA). Aviles says, if the owners of El Fuego don't know the flag etiquette and want to display the Mexican flag, they should display it at the same level as the U.S. flag or do not display the Mexican flag at all.
Hopefully, the owner or owners of El Fuego can correct the flag issue, especially, if they want to continue to attract Mexican clientele to their restaurant.
Especially, when the Mexican community is celebrating its 209th Independence Day celebration on September 16th in Mexico and in the U.S.


Update: El Fuego management released the following statement to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) on Thursday, "...thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are rectifying this mistake immediately and sincerely apologize as it was not our intention to be disrespectful in any manner."

Milwaukee Southside Pastor Eduardo Loera Announced That He Is No Longer A Candidate For Alderman In The 8th Aldermanic District

Loera ended his candidacy for alderman in the 8th Aldermanic District in the City of Milwaukee.

September 11, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Wednesday, Pastor Eduardo Loera who is a known Republican and a loyal Trump MAGA supporter announced that he has decided to end his candidacy to run for alderman in the 8th Aldermanic District in the Southside of Milwaukee. Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) was the only news source to discover and publish that Loera was a Trump MAGA supporter and is one of more than a dozen Latino MAGA supporters in Wisconsin who attended a Trump MAGA hate rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin in April. Since the rally, multiple Latino MAGA Trump supporters created a fake Facebook (FB) Latino MAGA hate group to brew hate in the Latino communities in Wisconsin, including targeting some members of the Latino community in Milwaukee and they also engaged in Nazi propaganda in their FB page in order to raise campaign funds for the Donald J. Trump donation campaign site and the RedWin PAC.
So far, five candidates remain in the race for alderman in the 8th Aldermanic District in Milwaukee and they are Angel Sanchez, Wisconsin State Representative JoCasta Zamarripa (D-Milw.), Justin Bielinski, Ryan M. Antczak and Christian Saldivar. Both Sanchez and Antczak are Republicans as well.
Loera in a released statement says that he will continue to serve his community. "...I am now stepping out of this race because I have now realized that this is not for me. Yes, I am going to continue to serve the community, but I am going to serve Milwaukee by using my strength as a local pastor...", Loera stated.
HNNUSA found that Loera has not been active in the Latino MAGA fake FB page, which HNNUSA published a list as a community service to identify the followers, public elected officials and business owners who do follow the FB Latino MAGA hate page.

Alleged Suspect In Mexican Fiesta 2019 Threat Released, Main Source Of Threat Remains Under Investigation, According To Milwaukee Police

Milwaukee police says a suspect (person of interest) was briefly detained in connection with the Mexican Fiesta 2019 threat, but was released since the individual wasn't the main source of the threat.

September 4, 2019

Milwaukee. WI - On Wednesday, Milwaukee Police Lieutenant Erik Gulbrandson from the Chief of Police Office confirmed to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) that police have an ongoing investigation to locate the actual suspect or suspects that originated the Mexican Fiesta 2019 threat that was circulated on SnapChat and Facebook, which Mexican Fiesta was tagged and eventually turned out to be a frivolous threat, according to Fiesta organizers. The bogus threat triggered a major public concern days before the three-day event and Fiesta organizers added extra precautions including safety measures at the three-day Mexican Fiesta at the Summerfest grounds on August 23 thru the 25. 
Some Milwaukee police officers and sergeants were equipped with assault rifles at the Fiesta event to ensure public safety. Police and Mexican Fiesta officials reported no major incidents at the Fiesta. 
On Sunday, at least 14,000 festivalgoers attended the Christian Nodal performance, according to a local LPOA source. Last year, at least 85,000 festivalgoers attended Mexican Fiesta, which is operated by the Wisconsin Hispanic Scholarship Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization.
Lt. Gulbrandson released the following statement to HNNUSA, "The Milwaukee Police Department takes all threats seriously and thoroughly investigated whether this threat was directed at Milwaukee's Mexican Fiesta.  During this investigation, a person of interest was briefly detained; however the investigation confirmed that this person was not the source of this threat.  This incident remains under investigation and for that reason, no names can be released."
