Milwaukee, WI - ICE reported that 83 undocumented immigrants were taken into custody in a four-day operation in Wisconsin, 21 had re-entered the U.S. illegally and 16 had no criminal record. Multiple U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids were reported in the City of Milwaukee, Madison, Arcadia and Greenbay detaining undocumented immigrants including from surrounding towns and cities throughout the State of Wisconsin over the weekend. ICE released the totalled of undocumented immigrants taken into custody, but in some cases, they pretend to identify themselves as police. ICE agents have also failed to provide warrants in most cases when asked by those family members that are affected and agents illegally tend to lie or fabricate reasons for arresting someone they come into contact with.
At least 20 were arrested in the Madison and Dane County, 15 in Arcadia, 15 in Milwaukee and 5 in Greenbay after family members reported that ICE agents had arrested family members at work places, traffic stops and at homes, according to Voces de la Frontera.
ICE reported that 83 undocumented immigrants were taken into custody since Friday during a four-day operation, which many were considered a threat to national security and had prior criminal records. 21 of the ICE detainees that were arrested had re-entered the U.S. without authorization, which is considered a federal felony offense and 16 detained had no criminal record, but were considered immigration fugitives. Of those arrested by ICE, 77 were men and 6 women from Colombia, Russia, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Thailand, Vietnam and Nicaragua. 44 detainees had criminal records. Those who re-entered the U.S. illegally are facing between 5 to 20 years in a federal prison, if convicted.
The ICE raids were conducted in 14 counties in Wisconsin.
The Waukesha County Sheriff's Office is the only one in the State of Wisconsin that operates a partnership with ICE under the discriminatory and profiling 287(g) program, which those inmates processed at the County jail are vetted for documented status.

Economic impact affect on communities, if most of the undocumented immigrants that were detained by ICE make an average of $30,000 to $60,000 annually, it would be a net loss to the families and area businesses including schools, simply because ICE detentions create an economic void in communities. Those undocumented working immigrants are not easily replace because most do jobs that other Americans don't want to do. The federal government should be forced to replace and fund the loss of economic revenue in the areas affected when ICE arrest household breadwinners forcing families into an economic crisis.

La empresa cuenta con múltiples máquinas de corte por láser de última generación cuyos diseños son programados por su hijo y cuenta con empleados que han trabajado con la empresa durante más de 33 años en el negocio.

Avilés también es conocido por sus servicios voluntarios en la organización UMOS y en la Fiesta Mexicana durante su anual fiesta de tres días al frente del lago. Sus logros pasados ​​y su éxito le han resultado en el entregado a Avilés, el premio humanitario de César E. Chavez por SER por el progreso, una organización de fines no lucrativos en el año 1996 junto con la segunda receptora Genoveva Medina, que los premios fueron entregados tanto a Avilés como a Medina en la Mexican Fiesta en Milwaukee.

El Council for the Spanish Speaking, Inc. y el Comité Cívico Cultural Hispano seleccionaron a Avilés como el Desfile de la Independencia de México Marshall en el año 1993.

Avilés en la década de los 1990's también ayudó a establecer más de 30 equipos de fútbol para adultos como Fundador / Presidente de Latino Sports Association of WI, Inc. También ayudó a establecer tres campos de fútbol para jóvenes al Sur de calle 6 y al Oeste de la calle Canal en el Menomonee Valley incluyendo torneos de equipos de fútbol en Mexican Fiesta cuando era coordinador.

The company has multiple state of the art laser cutting machines which designs are programed by his son and has employees that have worked with the company for more than 33 years in the business.
Aviles attributes his success to hard work, family dedication and learned experiences in acquiring contracts to make the business into a multi-million state of the art plastic display fabricator in the midwest. Aviles at times experienced hardships in acquiring contracts from large manufacturers, but his determination to succeed paid off when he began to get contracts and today, Aviles Plastics is sought by manufacturers from around the country looking for innovative ways to display their products, which Aviles Plastics specializes in designing plastic displays to meet the customers needs. Aviles continues to remodel the new facility and it will include an exhibit show room for visitors and visiting product manufacturers (potential customers) that can check out Aviles Plastics specialty fabricated products.

He finally opened his first plastic fabricating company in 1986 in the Southside of Milwaukee when several companies where he worked closed.
As a successful plastic display manufacturer, Aviles is also a community stakeholder and has been instrumental along with the late community education activist Dante Navarro in advocating for the Mexican government to open a Mexican Consulate in Milwaukee. Aviles remembers when he volunteered his services from 2004 to 2011 and accompanied Navarro who worked for United Migrant Opportunity Services (UMOS) throughout Wisconsin to visit migrant workers and many of those workers needed certain documents from the Mexican government. So, Aviles along with Navarro began to advocate for the Mexican government to open a Mexican Consulate, but it wasn't until a full community effort in 2015 and 2016 that the Mexican government finally opened a Consulate in Milwaukee.
In 1996 to 2000, Aviles while being the President of the Latino Sports Association of Wisconsin, Inc., a non-profit organization organized and invited the Mexican Council based in Chicago to come to Milwaukee and held the gatherings at the Aviles & Associates building to provided the needed services to the growing Mexican speaking community. In early 2000, Aviles turned over the annual hosting to bring the Mexican Council to Mexican Fiesta.
In 1998, Aviles graduated from the FBI Citizens Academy. In 1994, Aviles was recognized by the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) and the Milwaukee Common Council for his sponsorship of several fully equipped police bicycles, which they were able to participate at the 1995 Police and Bikes Conference organized by the International Police Mountain Bike Association. Aviles sponsorship of the police bikes initiate the first Police Bicycle Patrol and community orientated policing to help police officers work with citizens. 
Aviles is also well known for his volunteer services at UMOS and at the annual three-day Mexican Fiesta. His passed achievements and success have earned Aviles, the SER for Progress César E. Chavez Humanitarian Award in 1996 along with the second recipient Genoveva Medina, which the awards were presented to both Aviles and Medina at the Mexican Fiesta in Milwaukee.
The Council for the Spanish Speaking, Inc. and the Comité Cívico Cultural Hispano selected Aviles as the Mexican Independence Parade Marshall in 1993. 
Aviles in the 1990's also help establish more than 30 adult soccer teams as Founder/President of Latino Sports Association of WI, Inc. He also helped to establish three soccer fields for youths at S. 6th and W. Canal Streets in the Menomonee Valley including soccer team tournaments at Mexican Fiesta when he was a coordinator. 
From 1979 to 1986, Aviles was the President of Club Deportivo Latino founded by Pablo Borda. In 1979, he was the President of the Club Latino Andecker Soccer Club.
He also modeled shirts for Kolh's Department Stores.
Aviles as a successful plastic manufacturer has been a member of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin, the Private Industry Council (PIC) - Selection Committee Board.
Aviles also lectures to groups of students that working hard and having a business plan, they can also succeed. "Si Se Puede", Aviles says. Aviles explained that Latinos are also successful in manufacturering, just like any other business, which breaks down the barriers and the stereotypes that Latinos are just laborers, restaurant owners and cooks. 
Many Latinos today like Aviles are certainly role models and professionals from every field including business, corporations, manufacturers, public elected officials and in law enforcement in Wisconsin.
