Milwaukee, Wisconsin - The Trump 2020 reelection campaign has confirmed that President Donald J. Trump will be in Milwaukee on January 14th to hold a Keep America Great/Make America Great Again (MAGA) rally at the UW-Panther Area at 7:00 p.m., which the doors will be open at 3:00p.m. for the public to attend for free. A major protest against Trump in Milwaukee is being organized for 5:00p.m. at the rally, according to local activists.
In August 2019, Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) exposed a Latino MAGA fake Facebook page linked directly to the Trump reelection campaign donation site that promotes hate and Nazi propaganda in order to raise campaign funds to reelect Trump.
HNNUSA contacted the Trump reelection campaign donation site via e-mail asking if it was connected or actually sponsoring the Latino MAGA Facebook page including the hate group in Wisconsin associated with Mario Herrera, the former Hispanic Outreach Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin and Director of No Better Friend, LLC., a conservative lobbying group in Wisconsin and the current Veteran group advisor to Trump's campaign, but the Trump reelection campaign nor the Republican Party of Wisconsin officials never responded to the inquiry.
The Latino MAGA hate group in Wisconsin operates the fake Facebook page to target members of the Latino community and is currently active and has become a gathering hub for the Latino MAGA hate group and its followers who can be easily identified, since they have made their names public by liking the Nazi propaganda posts and page, which includes Kenosha County Supervisor Zach Rodriguez.
Trump's Keep America Great/MAGA rallies are well known to advocate hate, division among Americans and continuous racist rants targeted at communities of color by Trump and according to news reports and the FBI, where ever the Trump reelection campaign has held a Keep America Great/MAGA rally, hate crimes have increased in the area.
According to the Washington Post, Trump since taking Office at the White House has made more than 15,413 confirmed lies and mistruths averaging nearly 100 lies a day.

Previously Deported Mexican National Jose Facio-Santos Sentenced To 7 Years In Federal Prison For Running Brothel, Selling Drugs And Firearms In Milwaukee

Previously deported Mexican national who reentered the U.S. illegally sentenced to 7 years in prison for operating a prostitution brothel, selling drugs and firearms.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Thursday, the United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger announced in a press release that on December 23, 2019, Jose Facio-Santos, 39, a citizen of Mexico illegally in the United States after having been previously removed, was sentenced to seven years in federal prison for selling cocaine, heroin, and firearms, and transporting women into Milwaukee for purposes of prostitution. Upon completion of his sentence, he will be removed again to Mexico.       

The federal investigation revealed Facio-Santos sold narcotics on multiple occasions between September 2014 and December 2016, including approximately 166 grams of cocaine and 138 grams of heroin. In addition, in 2017, Facio-Santos sold an AK-47 style rifle and a Norinco Model SKS Rifle to an individual Facio-Santos did not know was working at the direction of law enforcement. 

On October 26, 2018, a search of Facio-Santo's house recovered a stolen 9 mm firearm along with a magazine containing approximately 11 rounds of ammunition. When his cell phone was searched, law enforcement found photographs of Facio-Santos posing with at least seven different firearms.

During the investigation, law enforcement discovered that Facio-Santos operated a brothel in Milwaukee. By his own admission, Facio-Santos prostituted 250 women during the years he ran the brothel. Every week, a new woman was brought from out-of-state to be prostituted and was required to perform between 10-15 commercial sex acts per day during her week in Milwaukee.  At the end of the week, Facio-Santos would take the woman to a predetermined location where she would be transported to another city. Court documents revealed that the women were extremely vulnerable, as many were undocumented and in dire financial situations. 

During the sentencing hearing Federal District Judge Lynn Adelman stated, that a "fairly significant sentence" was "necessary" to account for Facio-Santos having sold heroin, cocaine, and two highly dangerous weapons, as well as his managerial role in prostitution, all while in the United States illegally. The Judge further noted that Facio-Santos preyed upon "vulnerable people," which was very harmful in so many different ways.   

"Facio-Santos is a serious criminal who trafficked in dangerous drugs, lethal weapons, and vulnerable women," said United States Attorney Krueger.  "I commend the law enforcement agencies who conducted the investigation and brought Facio-Santos to justice."   

The following agencies participated in the investigation: Homeland Security Investigations, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Karine Moreno-Taxman and Elizabeth Monfils, according to the press release.

Halloween Skull Thief William Leary Charged With Two Counts For Retail Theft At Walgreens

Suspected 29-year-old thief charged with retail thefts and he confessed to also helping to steal several large Halloween skulls from a home porch in the Southside of Milwaukee.

December 27, 2019

Milwaukee, WI - A suspected Southside Halloween skull thief, William (Bill) Leary, 29, was booked in the Milwaukee County jail on December 4th for two misdemeanor counts for retail theft of less than $500 and including party to a crime for one misdemeanor count, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office. A $300 cash bond bail was set for Leary. Milwaukee County court records indicate that Leary was charged in connection with two Walgreens retail thefts and is prohibited to entering any Walgreens store in the Milwaukee area. If convicted, Leary is facing 9 months in jail and up to $10,000 in fines for each count.
The first misdemeanor count for retail theft was filed in August and Leary failed to show up for a court date and forfeited his cash bail and a warrant was issued for his arrest. While being on the run, Leary was video recorded by a Southside home surveillance camera along with two other women stealing two large Halloween skulls (each weighing 20 lbs) from a house porch and he later admitted in Facebook after being recognized that indeed he did it for money. He even laughed at police for not catching up to him, since missing his court date for the first retail theft misdemeanor case.
In early December, Leary was booked for retail theft at another Walgreens after being arrested for the alleged crime. So far, Leary has not been charged for the Halloween skull theft on October 16, which was actually his birthday.
The owner of the skulls says that he paid about $100.00 for each skull.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) after receiving a tip from a tipster and publicizing the suspects name, Leary later admitted in his Facebook account that he actually helped steal a Halloween skull from a porch.

December  26, 2019

Laredo, Texas - On Wednesday, the Christmas Day dance presentation at the Casa Blanca Event Center (ballroom) and the after party at the Cassette Bar and Grill with Los Palominos and Ricky Naranjo y Los Gamblers was cancelled by the dance promoters without making any announcements to the public by radio or any other source, according to various disappointed Tejano music fans in the City of Laredo. It was confirmed that Guerra Communications, the operators of La Casa Blanca in Laredo were giving refunds to fans that bought an advance ticket for the Palominos dance.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) learned that low dance ticket sales contributed to the decision to cancel the dance at the Casa Blanca. The Z93 FM radio station in Laredo, one of the sponsors kept playing songs from Los Palominos on Christmas Day and no announcement was officially ever made to its listening audience that the dance had been actually cancelled.
According to information from disappointed Tejano music fans in Laredo, at least 150 tickets were sold for the Los Palominos and Ricky Naranjo y Los Gamblers Christmas Day dance sponsored by the local radio Station La Z93 FM, Webb County Commissioner Jesse Gonzalez from Pricint 1 and multiple other sponsors compared to 600 advanced tickets already sold for the Joe Lopez y Grupo Mazz (Mazz de Joe Lopez), PegaPega and Jaime de Anda scheduled (dance/concert) performances at the Casa Blanca Event Center on January 25, 2020.
According to Johnny A. Arreola from Los Palominos, he posted on their official Facebook page on Thursday around 5:00 a.m. that a member of the Guerra family from La Casa Blanca got into an vehicle accident and the dance was postponed to a later date.
Lopez, a registered sex offender and Tejano style singer performed his first gig on December 13 at El Rodeo Disco in Houston after serving more than 11 years in prison for two felony counts of child sexual assault in Texas.
Lopez was released on March 15, 2018, after he completed a nine month sex offender treatment successfully.
He served 11 years and 4 months in prison. Under his parole conditions, Lopez was prohibited from entering Harris County (Houston) where his niece, the victim resides, but the prohibition was lifted by the Texas Parole Board for employment purposes.
El Rodeo Disco is located in Harris County. Lopez was convicted in 2006 for two felony counts of aggravated sexual assault (Lopez was sentenced to 20 years on one count and 8 years in prison on the second count) and one felony count for indecent contact with a child age 13 (sentenced to 4 years in prison) and was sentenced to 32 years in prison. Lopez has served 11 years.
Lopez was convicted for raping his 13-year-old niece Krystal Lopez who had his child.

Mario Herrera, Associated With A Latino MAGA Hate Group In WI On Facebook And A Veteran Group Advisor To The Donald Trump Campaign Showed Up In Support Of Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales At The FPC Reappointment Hearing

Herrera is well known for his association with the Latino MAGA hate group in Wisconsin that created a fake Facebook (FB) page to promote hate, division and Nazi propaganda in order to raise campaign funds for the Donald Trump campaign (the Latino MAGA fake Facebook page link connects to the Trump campaign donation site).

December 19, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Wednesday, Mario Herrera, the current director of No Better Friend Corp., a conservative lobbying group, the former Hispanic Outreach Director for the Republican Party of Wisconsin, also a Veteran group advisor for the Donald Trump campaign and known to be associated with the Latino Make America Great Again/Keep America Great (MAGA) hate group in Wisconsin that created a fake Facebook page to promote hate, division and Nazi propaganda in the state to raise funds for the Donald Trump Campaign and who is originally from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico (according to the No Better Friend Corp. website) showed up at the Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission (F&PC) in support of the reappointment of Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales. While speaking in support of Chief Morales during the F&PC hearing, he said, that when he first arrived in Milwaukee that he was afraid of the high crimes in the city, but he decided to stay in the Milwaukee area.
Morales was reappointed as Police Chief by the F&PC on a vote of 4 yes -2 no -1 abstained for a full four year term and as a condition, to hold two community meetings, one in the Northside and another one in the Southside.
Also, to provide certain stats to the F&PC every 6 months.
Herrera had to walk through a hall full of Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) supporters who were chanting in favor of approving the revised Milwaukee Police Department Standard Operating Procedure 130, which would prohibit police from collaborating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) during immigration enforcement to detain a suspected undocumented individual unless ICE agents have a valid judicial criminal warrant signed by a federal or state judge. Herrera didn't look to happy or in support of the VDLF supporters as he walked through the group heading to the F&PC hearing, according to a video recorded by Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) of the event. 
Chief Morales reappointment hearing drew many supporters including some Latino MAGAs, Morales hasn't publicly stated, if he is a Republican and a Trump supporter, he is not required to do so, since the job is a non-partisan City employment requirement.
There is nothing wrong with being a Republican conservative, Democrat, Bernie 2020 supporter or an Independent compared to being a Latino MAGA or MAGAs in general, who are known to be an alt-right extremist hate group that support Trump's racist and hate rhetoric towards the communities of color including the Hispanic community.
One thing for sure, the Latino MAGA fake Facebook hate page that promotes hate and Nazi propaganda is certainly a hub to generate a public list of supporters and MAGAs that follow the page and is still active to target Latinos in the community in Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission Chairman Steven DeVougas Should Resign For Violating Open Meeting Laws And Representing Client During A Police Criminal Investigation, The Milwaukee Police Association Alleged

Milwaukee Police Association wants an investigation into allegations that two Milwaukee Fire & Police Commissioners violated open meeting laws.

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

December 18, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Tuesday, the Milwaukee Police Association (MPA) on their Facebook  page called for Milwaukee Fire & Police Commissioner (FPC) Chairman Steven DeVougas to resign his position, or be removed, immediately, and an investigation to be conducted into his conduct.

According to allegations by Shawn C. Lauda, the President of the Milwaukee Police Association, he wrote that on August 14, 2019, Attorney DeVougas, a current member of the FPC, represented Kalan R. Haywood in a criminal investigation interview at the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD).  Haywood was interviewed by an MPD detective as a suspect in a sexual assault complaint. 

Lauda claims that Attorney DeVougas can't represent anybody in a criminal matter when the investigating agency is the same agency he oversees as a commissioner.  This is a violation of the State Bar's ethics as well as a violation of FPC rules.  

How can an MPD detective, or any supervisor overseeing an investigation, not feel intimidated by DeVougas when he literally has the power/influence to discipline them, including termination? Mr. Devougas is an attorney and knows the rules, yet failed to follow them, causing a significant appearance of impropriety, to say the least, according to Lauda.

The Kalan Haywood that DeVougas represented is the same Haywood, who according to CCAP, was found guilty of a felony drug crime (case #1996CF961513), has been sued at least four (4) times by the City of Milwaukee, and yet somehow managed to recently get the City of Milwaukee to loan him $9 million dollars for a real estate development project.   

Lauda ask why Attorney DeVougas, a self-described real estate, transactional business law, and business litigation attorney, who doesn't list any criminal defense work on his business website, represented a city-connected businessman with a shady history in a serious criminal sexual assault allegation in the first place.  To the average Joe, the optics of the situation look as though DeVougas represented Haywood because DeVougas knew that his mere presence as the representing attorney would improperly influence the investigation by intimidating the very investigators that he has authority over.  This is unacceptable behavior from an attorney/FPC commissioner and this alone warrants his removal.  

Lauda says that he talked to a reliable unidentified source who stated that DeVougas and Commissioner Everett L. Cocroft went on WNOV radio on Monday morning and alleged that these two commissioners discussed quite a bit of FPC business and provided him specific details of the discussion, which constituted a clear violation of the state's open meetings laws.  FPC commissioners are quite familiar with the open meetings laws and must abide by them, yet chose to disregard them, according to Lauda.

Both DeVougas and Cocroft sit on several FPC committees together and their formation of two commissioners creates a negative quorum, thereby prohibiting them from discussing FPC business in that forum.  Again, that is a blatant violation of the law and it needs to be investigated immediately.  

If we recall about a year ago in Mequon, their commission was plagued by similar conduct by commissioners who were also in violation of the state's open meetings laws.  What was the result?  Three of their commissioners stepped down.  Clearly, there is precedent on such conduct and if substantiated, the same needs to occur in this case to reestablish the credibility of the Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission.  To do nothing would suggest that the commission can sit in judgment of others, but shall not be judged themselves for their illegal conduct and rule violations.  That would be unacceptable!   

DeVougas stated to the Journal Sentinel a few days ago that back when Chief Flynn was given his third term, "…they (FPC) rushed it (contract) through."  Well, you were part of the commission back then that "rushed" it through, Mr. DeVougas.  You stated that back then the commission was "kept in the dark" and you weren't given all your options, Lauda  says.

Wait…so you're saying that either you were lied to by commissioners or others, information was intentionally withheld from you by commissioners or others, or that you were so naïve or incompetent that you didn't ask the appropriate questions or have enough information to cast an educated vote?  Please advise everybody in Milwaukee who entrusted you to be thorough and ethical in having a vote in appointing one of the city's most critical leadership positions, the city's police chief, and let us know which one of these occurred.  Obviously, this is a matter of great public concern and your admittance cannot and should not be glossed over.  

Any way you look at it, your stunning admittance of potential impropriety is of great concern and immediately calls into question your position on the commission, as well as potentially the others on the commission who voted on Flynn's third contract.  If you were truly "kept in the dark", then we should have an investigation into why that was, so as to root out all the dysfunction and possible impropriety that has plagued the FPC for quite some time now.  After a statement like that Mr. DeVougas, how is the community now supposed to have faith in the competence of the Commission with you on it?

Recently according to Lauda, DeVougas stated that he is now in no rush to renew MPD Chief Morales' contract for four more years, despite this topic having been a major community concern for many months and knowing that the Chief's contract is up in just a few weeks.  Then, DeVougas stated that, "If a contract expires and he (Chief Morales) wants to do something else, then it falls to the next person in line."  What line Mr. DeVougas?  A lunch line?  A grocery store line?  We are talking about appointing a person as Chief of Police in one of the most dangerous cities in this country, as well as needing a Chief to plan and be prepared for an upcoming major national event in the DNC, and you nonchalantly say "…it falls to the next person in line"?  That's ridiculous, unprofessional, irresponsible, and embarrassing to the FPC, Milwaukee, and its citizens.   

Clearly, Mr. DeVougas doesn't take his duty to appoint the right person as the Milwaukee Police Chief very seriously, with the attitude that he has shown.  He acts as if just anybody in "line" can do the job and it doesn't really matter.  Mr. DeVougas, you do know the DNC is coming to town in a few short months and whomever is the Chief of Police will be responsible for the safety of hundreds of thousands of people from in and out of town, right?  Do you think the out-of-towners want you to care who the Chief of Police is, for their own safety?  You better believe they do! 

In Lauda's opinion, pushing off Chief Morales' vote on his contract is a political sham on DeVougas part and failing to address the Chief's contract after all this time is a derelict of his duties.  DeVougas doesn't appear to have any legitimate reason for pushing off the vote on the Chief's contract, but he has, however, clearly shown a lack of transparency and a clear bias against the Chief by playing these games and disrespecting him.  Basically saying that if Chief Morales wants to leave when his contract expires, that any Joe Schmo in "line" can do the job next is utterly ridiculous!  

DeVougas has shown his political cards, Mr. DeVougas, clearly doesn't understand the gravity of his responsibilities at the FPC.  Conduct like his can result in devastating consequences for the citizens and visitors in this community and he does not belong on the commission.   DeVougas has lost his credibility and integrity and he should resign or be removed, immediately, according to Lauda.

Finally, Lauda wrote, the MPA requests a formal investigation into Mr. DeVougas' conduct, demands his resignation/removal from his position, and then, and only then, can the FPC begin to heal from such misconduct and start to restore its integrity moving forward.    

In another matter, an allegation was raised by an org in their blog alleging that a false entry was discovered in a submitted resume involving Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission Executive Director Griselda Aldrete, the Wisconsin Justice Initiative (WJI) dot org alleged that Aldrete stated on her main resume that she submitted to the city that she taught "Introduction of Criminal Justice" at MATC from 2009 to 2012. 

She actually taught at the school part-time from November 2004 to December 2005 and never taught a course there related at all to criminal justice. 

Rather, she taught mostly short basic education courses –  basic communications, career exploration, and computer basics, according to her class schedule from 2004 through 2005, the WJI reported.

Update: In a press release on Wednesday, Milwaukee Fire & Police Commissioner, Vice-chair Nelson Soler released the following statement, a Special Meeting was called for the vote on the appointment of Chief Morales and FPC Chairman appearance on 860 Radio.
I called a Special Meeting of the FPC (Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at 8:30p.m. at City Hall) to maintain its integrity to a published process set by the Chairman. I have been a hardliner in demanding transparency from MPD, FPC Director and the Chair and that is typically not well received.
Regarding the allegations that I had any contact with the new Commissioner, they are false. I do not know the Commissioner, I have never talked to him or have any direct contact. Many are quick to create and feed on false stories but my integrity remains.

Also, former Milwaukee Fire & Police Commissioner and Wisconsin State Representative Marisabel Cabrera (D-Milw.) on Wednesday, posted the following comments on her personal Facebook account, Being Latino doesn’t automatically mean you get my support. Do your homework people. I cannot support a Chief of Police who lies. Period. One key issue that was brought up at his interview before the public is whether or not MPD would collaborate with ICE if he became Chief of Police. Morales in no uncertain terms said because he himself is a descendant of Mexican immigrants and because MPD relies heavily on intel received from the immigrant community, he would not allow MPD to participate in ICE activities. This video can be found on the FPC Facebook page. He also on multiple subsequent public forums and meetings repeatedly stated MPD would not cooperate with ICE. Suddenly, a video surfaces of MPD clearly cooperating with ICE. This video can be found at Voces de la Frontera’s Facebook page. It is only then that Morales came clean and admitted MPD cooperates with ICE and then went a step further requesting the FPC allow the MPD-ICE collaboration be put in a written policy. This is just one of many examples of Morales lying to the public.

A Valid Judicial Federal Or State Warrant Signed By A Judge Must Be Presented By U.S. ICE For Local Police Collaboration To Assist And Arrest An Individual, Ruled The Milwaukee Fire And Police Commission Policies And Standards Committee

The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission Policies and Standards unanimously approved the newly revised Milwaukee Police Standards Operating Procedure 130 that makes it clear, that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would have to present a valid judicial federal or state criminal warrant signed by a court judge to have police collaborate with ICE to detain or arrest an undocumented individual in the City of Milwaukee.

December 12, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Thursday, the three member Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission Policies and Standards Committee (MFPCPSC) Chaired by Nelson Soler unanimously voted to approve the newly revised Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) Standards Operating Procedure 130 (SOP 130) that would require the U.S. Immigration and Customs enforcement to present a valid federal or state judicial criminal warrant signed by a court judge to allow police to collaborate and assist ICE in detaining or arresting a suspected undocumented individual. The SOP 130 will also require the MPD to make available police crime reports to crime victims for the purpose to apply and who are in the process of getting a U-visa, especially for those in deportation proceedings, which MPD would have 90 days to make the crime reports available per request and at least 30 days for those undocumented victims of crime in deportation preceedings.
The MFPCPSC made it clear during the hearing, that an ICE administrative civil immigration warrant signed by an agent will not be recognized or accepted by the MPD for the purpose in arresting or detaining an individual without a judicial warrant.
The newly revised SOP 130 requires ICE to have a valid judicial warrant to detain and arrest an individual when asking for police to assist and collaborate with ICE agents in federal civil immigration enforcement purposes that was approved by the MFPCPSC now goes before the full Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission for approval on December 18, 2019.
Christine Neumann-Ortiz, the Executive Director from Voces de Frontera, a workers and immigrant rights nonprofit organization, Wisconsin State Representative Marisabel Cabrera (D-Miilw.), who is also an immigration attorney, Shiu-Ming Cheer, Director of Movement Building & Strategic Partnerships for the National Immigration Law Center and allies were instrumental in helping MPD to draft certain revisions of the newly adopted SOP 130 by the MFPCPSC restricting Police collaboration with ICE unless ICE agents have a judicial criminal warrant to detain and arrest a suspected undocumented individual.

Six Undocumented Men From Guatemala Residing In Wisconsin Facing Charges Each For One Felony Count For 2nd Degree Sexual Assault In Green Lake County

The six suspects were taken into custody last November by the Green Lake County Sheriff's Department after a juvenile female teenager came forward and alleged that she was being trafficked for sex by the men.

December 11, 2019

Township of Manchester, Wisconsin - On Wednesday, the Green Lake County Sheriff's Office (GLCSO) released the following information about the arrest of six undocumented men, originally from Guatemala that had been taken into custody in November after a teenage female had come forward after escaping from a home and alleged that she was being sex trafficked by the six men. According to the GLCSO press release, on November 28, at 10:44pm, the Green Lake County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call from a juvenile runaway.  The victim stated she escaped from a residence where she was being sex trafficked.  The victim was located on the side of the road and rescued by a Deputy.  The victim was able to provide additional information that started an investigation.  Subsequently a search warrant was executed on the residence on November 29 at W2964 County Line Road in the Township of Manchester.  That search warrant produced a number of evidence items believed to be connected to the sexual assault of the juvenile.  The investigation and search warrant also included the arrest of 6 suspects who reside at W2964 County Line Road.  The suspects are Esler Hugo Rivera male 33 years of age, Rolando Corado Gonzalez male 28 years of age, Avelino Sarceno-Sarceno male 40 years of age, Ember Rivera male 37 years of age, Noe Bautista-Martinez male 28 years of age, and Evis Amabilio Garcia-Rivera male 31 years of age.  All parties have been arrested for 2nd Degree Sexual Assault.  
Evis Amabilio Garcia-Rivera is suspected of trafficking the juvenile female within the residence amongst the suspects.  All of the suspects are believed to be undocumented immigrants from Guatemala.  The suspects have made court appearances, and they are currently being held at the Green Lake County Correctional Facility on cash bonds that vary from $20,000 to $50,000.  
The suspects involved have not yet been criminally charged and all parties are innocent until proven guilty.  This incident remains under investigation by the Green Lake County Sheriff's Office and the Division of Criminal Investigations of the Wisconsin Department of Justice, according to the GLCSO.

Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa Released On U.S. ICE Bond After Illegal Arrest For Frivolous Charge By Milwaukee Police Department

Undocumented De la Cruz-Espinosa who became a victim of a frivolous charge by Milwaukee police officers from Police District Station 2 in September was released from U.S. ICE custody after posting bond.

December 11, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Wednesday, Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa, 38, was released from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody after posting a $4,000 cash bond. De la Cruz-Espinosa has a deportation hearing case pending after he was taken into custody on September 23, 2019 by Milwaukee police officers for a frivolous traffic violation charged, but the officers failed to process him for the state violation and turned him over to rogue ICE agents at the scene who only had a federal civil ICE administrative warrant for his arrest. De la Cruz-Espinosa was on Wisconsin state probation for a misdemeanor conceal carry conviction when he was arrested by police.
A video released by Voces de la Frontera showed that police officers at the scene when they detained De la Cruz-Espinosa didn't have a valid legal warrant signed by a court judge, but called his Wisconsin Department of Corrections probation agent Minerva Santiago-Gomez to revoke his probation and take him into custody for a frivolous charge and he was never processed for the charge by police. The Wisconsin Department of Corrections and his probation officer never challenged Milwaukee police for not processing De la Cruz-Espinosa for the frivolous charge, but De la Cruz-Espinosa who was freed today on an ICE bond will now continue to serve his state probation for the misdemeanor conceal carry conviction.
The De la Cruz-Espinosa family confirmed on Wednesday that they are seeking legal action against the Milwaukee Police Department and the City of Milwaukee for violating De la Cruz-Espinosa's legal right for due process including his wife's and children rights that were violated by police as well.
In October, Milwaukee Police Alfonso Morales confirmed during a Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission hearing that police officers were assisting ICE agents in making an arrest with an active federal warrant, but what Chief Morales failed to mention was that it is not a legal warrant signed by a federal or state court judge and the warrant that he was talking about was merely an ICE administrative warrant signed by an ICE agent used in federal immigration civil matters.
As it stands, Chief Morales, the Milwaukee Police Department and the City of Milwaukee will be facing a federal lawsuit by the De la Cruz-Espinosa family.
According to U.S. ICE, "Under the Immigration and Nationality Act as passed by Congress, ICE detainers, removal orders issued by federal immigration judges, and ICE immigration enforcement in general, is conducted under civil law. The "judicial warrant" demanded by a sheriff (police) only applies to criminal cases and does not exist for civil law matters. "However, for every detainer ICE issues the agency also provides an accompanying administrative warrant, or a warrant of removal along with the detainer, which is the warrant that does exist for matters governed under civil law." The ICE warrants are not legal binding to enter private property to arrest a suspected undocumented individual or a vehicle, which is private property as well, but ICE attempts to deceit the public by making it seem that ICE administrative warrants are legal to execute on private property and force a Sheriff's Department or Police Department to turn over an individual. Law enforcement agencies do neglect to honor such ICE detainers and administrative warrants to avoid being liable by an individual due to the non legal binding ICE warrants and detainers.

Emiliano Zapata Family To Sue Ballas Artes And Artist That Created Painting Depicting The Mexican Revolutionary General As Gay With Pink Sombrero And Wearing Heels

Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico - Jorge Zapata, the grandson of the Mexican Revolutionary General Emiliano Zapata announced during a press conference that the family has acquired an attorney and is expected to file a lawsuit against the National Institute of Bellas Artes and artist Fabián Cháirez for exhibiting a painting by Cháirez of Emiliano wearing a pink sombrero and wearing women's shoe heels while riding in a horse with an erection. Jorge says that he has a lot of gay friends and respects them, but to depict Emiliano as gay is an insult to the general and his family.
Jorge described Cháirez as an unknown artist looking for fame as a reason for painting Emiliano as gay.
According to the Cultural Secretariat un México, Fabián Cháirez is a Chiapas painter whose work is part of Neomexicanism. His pieces focus on portraying bodies and scenes that do not fit, differ or disobey archetypes of masculinity. The characters who star in Cháirez's paintings blur the boundaries between masculinity and femininity and question the social impositions related to sexual difference and machismo. In turn, Cháirez resorts to figures of popular culture that throughout history have been considered as "Mexican" shapers as a way of questioning the ways in which identity is generated. His piece,  the revolution questions the macho stereotypes that make up the national identity and makes visible the movements of sexual diversity. This work is exhibited in the Museum of the Palace of Fine Arts in the exhibition "Emiliano Zapata Despues de Zapata". Cháirez says on his Facebook page, "If you use the feminine, race or social position as an insult, then you are part of the problem and you are very far from offending me ... because questioning makes us think and thinking will set us free.
The Bellas Artes exhibition "Zapata after Emiliano Zapata/Emiliano Zapata Despues de Zapata" began on November 27, 2019 and will continue until February 16, 2019 at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.

Wisconsin Senate Republicans Once Again Proposing SB 151/AB 138, Both Anti-immigrant Sanctuary City Bills

Senate Republicans in Wisconsin are proposing once again an anti-immigrant Sanctuary City bills SB 151/AB 138.

December 6, 2019

Madison, Wisconsin - The Wisconsin State Senate Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform has scheduled a public hearing on December 17, in room 411 South at the State Capitol at 10:30a.m. for the proposed State Senate Bill 151, which is an anti-immigrant Sanctuary City bill introduced on April 4, 2019,  by State Senators Nass, Craig, Wanggaard, Jacque, Stroebel and Kapenga, cosponsored by State Representatives Spiros, August, Edming, Kuglitsch, Murphy, Neylon, Ramthun, Sanfelippo, Skowronski, Sortwell, Thiesfeldt, Tusler and Wichgers. 
A similar State Assembly Bill 138 to SB 151 was proposed  on 3/25/2019 by State Representatives Spiros, August, Edming, Kuglitsch, Murphy, Neylon, Ramthun, Sanfelippo, Skowronski, Sortwell, Thiesfeldt, Tuslerand Wichgers; cosponsored by State Senators Nass, Craig, Jacque, Kapenga and Stroebel.
This is the second time in less than two years that state Republicans in control of the state legislature have proposed such a bill, in February 2018, the Wisconsin State Assembly failed to take up a similar anti-immigrant Sanctuary City bill, Assembly Bill 190, which was similar to Senate Bill 275 and both expired when the legislative session ended in 2018, but the State Senate Republican majority had passed SB 275 in session. 
The recent SB 151 bill prohibits a city, village, town, or county from enacting or enforcing an ordinance, resolution, or policy that prohibits the enforcement of a federal or state law relating to illegal aliens or ascertaining whether an individual has satisfactory immigration status. The bill also requires a political subdivision to comply with a lawful detainer that is issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and authorizes the attorney general or the appropriate district attorney or sheriff to file a writ of mandamus with the circuit court to require compliance with the requirements created by the bill if he or she believes that the political subdivision is failing to comply with the requirements.
If a court finds that a political subdivision has failed to comply, the department of revenue must reduce the political subdivision's shared revenue payments in the next year by $500 to $5,000, depending on the political subdivision's population, for each day of noncompliance. Also under the bill, if a court makes such a finding, the political subdivision is liable for any damages caused by an illegal alien.
If Senate Bill 151 is passed, it would illegally allowed for law enforcement especially County Sheriffs around the state to comply with U.S. immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers.
The Wisconsin Republican legislators in control in both the State Assembly and Senate have been aware that federal ICE detainer requests are not legal binding, but are attempting to force law enforcement agencies and county sheriffs to comply with such ICE detainer requests under SB 151.
The acceptance of detainers by law enforcement are voluntary, which many law enforcement agencies shy away from complying due to federal lawsuits for violating the rights of those illegally held without a court warrant signed by a judge.
According to the ACLU-Pennsylvania in 2014, "The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled that states and localities are not required to imprison people based on "detainer" requests from the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, ICE, recognizing that states and localities may share liability when they participate in wrongful immigration detentions. The ruling in Galarza v. Szalczyk, et al., stems from Lehigh County Prison's wrongful detention of Ernesto Galarza, a U.S. Citizen, who despite posting bail and telling his jailers that he was born in New Jersey was held in jail for three days because of an ICE detainer that stated only that ICE was investigating his immigration status...A growing number of states and localities, including California, Connecticut, New York City, Newark, Cook County, New Orleans, and Washington, DC, have adopted laws or policies limiting their involvement with ICE detainers, or declining to treat them as a basis for detention at all. Although ICE has long characterized its detainers as "requests," this is the first time a federal appeals court has addressed this precise issue."
In other ICE detainer rulings, in an Illinois case, "Jimenez Moreno v. Napolitano — that's currently moving through the courts. In September, U.S. District Judge John Z. Lee ruled that the Department of Homeland Security's use of detainers exceeded its legal authority and were "void" because "immigration detainers issued under ICE's detention program seek to detain subjects without a warrant — even in the absence of a determination by ICE that the subjects are likely to escape before a warrant can be obtained."...the "Mercado v. Dallas County, in which a federal court ruled last year that an ICE detainer didn't provide probable cause to law enforcement to detain a person because probable cause is an issue relevant to criminal cases, while immigration is a civil matter," the Texas Tribune dot org reported in 2017.

Talisayan, Province of Misamis Oriental, Philippines - On Thursday, Llyod Bagtong, 21, was booked for murder by the Talisayan Municipal Police after witnesses reported that a woman had been killed and her head was decapitated. Police discovered the partially naked body of a female with the head missing and her arms tied at Purok 2, Barangay Punta Santiago, according to Talisayan Police Senior Inspector Maribeth Ramoga. Bagtong was later taken into custody and led police to his home at Barangay Casibole where the head was recovered and the cut off skull at a nearby hole.
Bagtong told police that he killed the woman at a nearby cemetery by striking her in the head with a metal object, then cut her head with a sanggot, a tool for cutting grass. Bagtong had the murder weapon on his waistband when he was arrested by police an hour after the woman's body was found. The woman's body was found around 5:00a.m. by local residents about 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) from Bagtong's home.
Bagtong also told police that he took the severed head home, he got hungry and cooked the brain with some rice and admitted to eating the unidentified woman's brain.
Witnesses told police that they saw Bagtong walking with the woman before he killed her and that she was speaking English, which triggered Bagtong to kill her, according to police.
Police are trying to identify the woman who is believed to be in her 30's, according to Inspector Ramoga.

Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission Official Actions And Public Comments Not Being Place On Record By Executive Director Griselda Aldrete

Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission public oversight in peril due to alleged negligence by its executive director and staff to record all official acts during meetings, according to public scrutiny of hearings.

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

December 3, 2019

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - The Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission (MF&PC) is now facing a dilemma of discovering previous official actions taken at public hearings (meetings) have been left out of the official record by the current Commission Executive Director Griselda Aldrete and staff, which has prevented any further action at scheduled meetings simply because the item or the approved resolution FPC 19403 (to allow 4 Residency Preference Points to the MPD Sergeant, Lieutenant and Detective exams) was not on the record or agenda itself, also it has been reported that she has missed some offical hearings, according to Paul Mozina, a frequent attendee of the Commission hearings and who has criticized the new management at the MF&PC. Mozina, a Milwaukee community activist on his Facebook account posted, "The new Executive Director of the Fire and Police Commission, Griselda Aldrete, "serves at the pleasure of the Mayor" and apparently that means ignoring the Milwaukee City Ordinance Chapter 314, which says she shall act as the principal staff "Under the direction of the Board…" and the FPC Rules which state: "The Executive Director or designee shall attend all meetings and shall record all official actions."
Yes, apparently it pleases Mayor Barrett that Ms. Aldrete doesn't bother to attend all of the FPC meetings or record the official acts of the Board. 
In fact, despite the evidence in the video linked below, apparently I never spoke to the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners on November 20, 2019.  According to the FPC's published minutes for the meeting — it never happened." 
On May 3rd, the Milwaukee City Attorney's Office wrote an opinion stating that the MF&PC had authority over the employees of both the Milwaukee Fire Department and Milwaukee Police Department, but it didn't have any authority over the MF&PC executive director. (See attached 5-page letter from City Attorney Grant F. Langely to the MF&PC dated May 3, 2019).
A high turnover of the MF&PC staff including the termination of several staff members including the recent resignation of the MF&PC investigator Cheryl Patane. In a four page letter to the MF&PC, Patane wrote, "...It is with regret that I hereby submit my resignation. This action is being taken in protest against the current FPC administrative management whose newly implemented practices and procedures are undermining the fundamental spirit and purpose of the City of Milwaukee's civilian public oversight system...The Executive Director appears to have intentionally chosen to withdraw and take a hands off approach to her statutory obligations (City Charter 314 and FPC Citizen Complaint Filing Guidelines) to review, assess, and evaluate the internal operations of the FPC citizen complaint process as well as the auditing of the MPD and MFD citizen complaint process. This shift in accountability and demonstrable lack of intellectual inquisitiveness or insight into the citizen complaint process by the current Executive Director is stunning. The Executive Director has an obligation to actively participate in the citizen complaint process, as detailed in the FPC rules which repeatedly reference the FPC Citizen Complaint Filing Guidelines. It is as if every statutorily mandated duty and function of the Executive Director is being outsourced to others in the organization, making one wonder why taxpayers are paying almost $140,000 per year for an Executive Director...I am deeply disturbed by the new management's treatment of staff; which seems to be rooted in mistrust and suspicion. The Executive Director, upon arriving at FPC, eventually met with staff for one on one meetings but seemed to have already developed rumor-fueled preconceived ideas about staff members and inaccurate perceptions of FPC functions. Subsequent staff meetings have been one-way communication interactions with the perception and eventual reality that if an employee expresses conflicting viewpoints, stern consequences will follow. This distrust and suspicion can be shown by recent directives such as no cell phones would be allowed during staff meetings, and that FPC staff are no longer allowed to engage with Commissioners' requests for information regarding FPC business, and when Commissioners arrive at FPC offices they are only to engage with and be escorted by management. To a team of experienced professionals, this approach has been nothing short of unprofessional. Recently when a long tenured employee attempted to address concerns such as this with the Executive Director, she responded by telling the employee if they didn't like it, they could leave the FPC. What is most unfortunate for the citizens of Milwaukee is that a number of experienced, professional staff members appear to have taken the Executive Director's ill-advised suggestion. Since the Executive Director's appointment approximately three months ago, a staff of thirteen employees (which was already down from the full complement of 21) has seen the following turnover: the Operations Manager resigned in protest, two employees have taken FMLA leave for stress, two staff members have resigned and three staff members have been fired..."
Also, Aldrete has drawn criticism by community based organizations in the African-American community for canceling meetings with them and has not met with them concerning the MF&PC policies.
The MF&PC has yet to hold Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales and police officers from the 2nd Police District Station accountable who were involved in the September 23 arrest of undocumented Jose Alejandro de la Cruz-Espinoza for a frivolous traffic violation who was on probation at the time and then turning him over to rogue U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents without a valid federal warrant signed by a judge, but police officers at the scene in the Southside merely released De la Cruz to ICE agents on an ICE administrative warrant, which is only used for federal civil immigration matters, in other words, De la Cruz was under Wisconsin state custody for probation and police failed to follow due process and allow for a state judge to determine, if De la Cruz should be turned over to ICE after completing his sentence for a misdemeanor conviction for possession of a conceal weapon.
Chief Morales told the MF&PC at a meeting that De la Cruz had an active federal warrant, but failed to mention that it was only an ICE warrant signed by an agent instead of a federal judge, which is considered invalid. Only a federal or state warrant signed by a court judge is legal to hold or arrest an individual whether having legal status or not in the U.S.

Veteran Racist Bigot Including Latino MAGAs Spread Hate Targeting The Latino Community In Wisconsin

Wisconsin State Representative Zamarripa (D-Milw.) and Wisconsin State Senator Taylor (D-Milw.) have confirmed that they have received racist and hate U.S. mail including postcards for years from an unidentified racist bigot who doesn't sign the mail targeted at the state legislators.

Madison, WI - For years, Milwaukee Latino businesses, non-profit organizations including local, county and state elected officials have received hate and threatening U.S. mail including postcards from an unidentified racist bigot who says is a U.S. veteran that speaks English. It seems the racist bigot in question suffers from some type of hate generated mental disease and needs some medical and psychological help.
Recently, the whole Waukesha City Council were also targeted with the same type of hate U.S. mail and racist rhetoric targeted at Latinos as previous victims of color. Wisconsin State Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milw.) says that "For years, I have received cards with the exact same hand writing. When I got feces sent to me and hate emails and mail, they (law enforcement) did nothing."
State Representative JoCasta Zamarripa says, that she has become disappointed and it frustrates her to receive hate mail targeted at Mexican nationals, but that she remains committed to representing the underrepresented regardless of any attempt to target her with hate mail.
Most of the businesses previously hit with hate mail include, Campuzano Alterations, La Mexicana, Fiesta Salón & Spa,  Centro de Sonido and Taquería Aranda,  which are owned by Mexican descent business owners. Also, El Conquistador Newspaper reported that it has received hate mail and postcards as well. Other nonprofit organizations operated and managed by Latinos have also been targeted by the same veteran racist bigot.
Voces de la Frontera (VDLF), an immigrant and workers rights organization have also received multiple hate mail, according Primitivo Torres from VDLF.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) has learned that the hate mail and postcards sent by the racist bigot is widely spread that even the ACLU-WI, Hispanic Professionals of Wisconsin, Milwaukee County Board and Urban Milwaukee have reported that they have received this type of hate and racist rants postcards.
Complaints about receiving such hate mail have been made by targeted victims throughout Wisconsin to local, county, state law enforcement agencies and the U.S. Postal Service Inspectors to no avail.
HNNUSA is now offering a $1 reward for information leading to the identity of the alleged veteran racist bigot.
Most likely, the suspected racist bigot is a Trump MAGA supporter, since Trump has advocated hate and discriminatory rants targeted at Mexican nationals and immigrants of color.
The racist bigot identified as a veteran who apparently served in the military, only believes that U.S. citizens are afforded Constitutional rights and civil rights, etc., but it definitely seems the same racist bigot doesn't actually understand that he served in the military to protect the U.S. Constitution and the rights of everyone in the U.S., whether a U.S. citizen or not.
Such racist bigots should be outed and exposed by the community for what they are, "sickos".
Last August, the Latino MAGAs/Make America Great Again-Keep America Great (KAG) in Wisconsin created a fake Facebook page to promote hate and Nazi propaganda targeted at members of the Latino community to raise campaign funds for the Trump re-election campaign. The Latino MAGA fake Facebook page in Wisconsin has become a lure to expose fellow racists that promote hate and their supporters. Anyone can actually identify who they are because the fake Facebook page is still active today and they can be identified by name in the page including Kenosha County Supervisor Zach Rodriguez, a known MAGA Republican in the state who seems to like the page, racist posts and its Nazi propaganda. These individuals are some of the racist bigots that stand with Trump and his racist and discriminatory rhetoric at MAGA/KAG rallies around the nation.

Anti-Evo And Pro-Evo Rally Including Protest Held In Milwaukee Calling For U.S. Imperialism And Intervention Out Of Latin America

U.S. and Trump supported coup in Bolivia claims lives.

By H. Nelson Goodson 
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

November 16, 2019

Milwaukee, WI - On Saturday, members of the Facebook group of Bolivianos en Wisconsin from Madison who waved Bolivian flags were in Milwaukee to oppose Evo and say that there was no coup, despite the actual takeover by the alt-right political rivals of the government. The Bolivian Madison group chanted for democracy eventhough, the alt-right political rivals of the Evo government were backed by the U.S., some of those at the protest indicated that they don't support Evo nor Trump. It seemed that no Bolivian national from the Milwaukee area were present at the protest, according to the group from Madison. 
While the Party for Socialism and Liberation Milwaukee and allies also held a peaceful rally and protest against the U.S. Imperialism funded coup to overthrow the duly elected President of Bolivia, Evo Morales. The protest seeking democracy for Bolivia and against U.S. Imperialism and intervention in Latin America was one of many held around the U.S. including at W. Locust and S. Martin Luther King Drive in Milwaukee.
One individual held a sign saying Evo = fraud compared to dozens who mostly waved Bolivian flags and chanted "Evo de Nuevo, hell No", "We want democracy in Bolivia, We want Peace", "What do we want, democracy now in Bolivia".
Cecilia F. Miranda who was at the protest says, that there was no coup, despite the U.S. backed alt-right takeover and allegations raised that Evo committed election fraud.
Iris Alpire also says, that the Bolivian people over threw Evo by social pressure, but there is no evidence that the irregularities and the allegations of election fraud affected the results of the election in October, which the majority of those that voted elected Evo and the Bolivian Congress, when it recently met in quorum voted to confirm the election results and Evo as the Bolivian President.
The Bolivian military and police failed to support Evo's re-election by the majority of the Bolivian voters, which is odd, when democracy today for Bolivia has been echoed around the world, while on the contrary, the alt-right political rivals, military and Bolivian police opposed Evo and have denied the election results of the majority of Bolivians.
Morales fled Bolivia after his life and his family's lives were threatened by ultra-right political rivals backed by Trump.
Morales was elected in October by a majority of Bolivians despite allegations of irregularities and election fraud, which didn't effect the actual vote tally electing Morales.
Statistical analysis of election returns and tally sheets from Bolivia's October 20 elections shows no evidence that irregularities or fraud affected the official result that gave President Evo Morales a first-round victory, researchers and analysts at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) say. Contrary to a postelection narrative that was supported, without evidence, by the OAS Electoral Observation Mission, statistical analysis shows that it was predictable that Morales would obtain a first-round win, based on the results of the first 83.85 percent of votes.
Morales was forced to leave Bolivia by the alt-right Bolivian political rivals and is currently in Mexico. The Bolivian Congress in a majority vote reaffirmed Morales as the duly elected President of Bolivia.
At least eight people were killed and dozens injured in the Bolivian city of Sacaba on Friday, after security forces fired on supporters of ousted president Evo Morales, according to the Associated Press.
Bernie Sanders, the Democratic candidate for U.S. President says, Morales did a very good job in alleviating poverty and giving the indigenous people a voice they never had before, we can argue, if it was a wise thing for Morales to run for a fourth term, but at the end of the day, when the military intervened in the Bolivian election process and asked Morales to leave, in his (Sanders) view, it's a coup.
