Legal Action Warning Exposed Over Facebook Viral Post Depicting Latinos for Trump (MAGAs), Which Outed Eric Zuniga, A Member Of The Latino Chamber Of Commerce Of Dane County

Madison, WI - On Saturday, Janelle Pérez, a Madison area activist posted a photo on her Facebook (FB) account that she shared from Mario Moreno Fuentes depicting a group of Latinos for Trump (LFT/MAGAs- Make America Great Again/Keep America Great) from Wisconsin supporting and holding Goya Food products during an event at Fiesta Cafe on July 15 in Milwaukee amidst a national boycott that was sparked after Robert "Bob" Unanue, the CEO of Goya Foods praised Trump at the White House last week, has now sparked some controversy involving the Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County (LCC). Pérez claimed on her FB post that Eric Zuniga from Madison who appeared in the LFT/MAGAs group photo was affiliated with the LCC. According to corresponding FB posts in the matter, Zuniga used to be employed by the LCC  in 2017 to November 2018 and his marketing digital business Ipsum, LLC showed the same address as of the LCC Chamber due to an incubator program at LCC, which business space was rented to Zuniga. Zuniga is still a registered member of the LCC, but he hasn't been involved with Chamber activities since last December. He graduated from the incubator program as a small business owner and is no longer in the program, according to an LCC source.

Apparently, Jessica Cavasos, the CEO of the LCC sent a warning notice of intent by messenger to Pérez and threatened to take legal action against her within 24 hours, if she failed to publically correct a false statement that mentions "the Latino Chamber of Commerce as supporting Eric Zuniga's political views and partisan activities." In contrary, Pérez disputes Cavasos' claim and updated that Zuniga was affiliated with the LCC instead.

Cavasos in a inbox messenger response posted publicly by Stephanie Ugalde on her FB account on Sunday confirmed that Cavasos stated, "Eric is no longer employed by the LCC as he once was and we have decided to part ways because of his affinity to a party that doesn't represent or help our current progression."

Pérez also posted on her FB, "I never attacked the Latino Chamber of Commerce on my post about Eric. I only informed our community about the two faces he's shown us and the spaces he is considered a leader and occupies as well. This has concerned many of the people in our community. Especially our undocumented friends and families.'

"We cannot have leaders who say they're for our undocumented community and turn his back to support Trump. It is very dangerous to have these individuals in our spaces and community. 

"If you want to continue to support individuals like this, then I wouldn't consider LCC as non-partisan. Especially when working with undocumented folx. 

"They have a lot of work to do instead of trying to turn this back on me. Let me remind you he outed himself by taking this picture and I just so happen to share it. 

"PS- Why are they so fast to defend someone like him too though?"

Pérez also confirmed that a GoFundMe account was created to raise funds for a legal defense, "As you know I was threatened that legal action would be taken out me  for my recent posts on speaking up and protecting my community. I am not the only one who may face additional legal threats as this moves forward. I am part of a collective called "Madison Mujeres Al Frente" and our goal is to fight for the concerns and answers our community is demanding. This non-partisan non profit is not engaging in meaningful dialogues and rather claim that we are attacking them and trying to shut us down."

"To protect ourselves and continue to fight for the community, we would like to continue under the advisement of an attorney so we are ready and prepared to fight for the long run."

LCC released the following statement to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA).

Eric Zuniga is not employed by the Latino Chamber of Commerce of Dane County, nor is he serving in any volunteer capacity. He is a member of the LCC, a non-partisan organization that does not use political affiliation is not considered as part of membership criteria. His political views are his own and not the LCC’s views. The LCC is a pro-Latino organization that does not support kids in cages, the deportation of undocumented immigrants and the separation of families.

In 2017, President Trump announced that he planned to work toward repealing the Johnson Amendment to allow churches and other nonprofit organizations to speak freely about the candidates they support. Currently, churches and other nonprofit organizations can publish and promote their views on social and political matters, but they can’t openly endorse any particular candidate, the Boardeffect dot com reported.

The Frank Nitty And Samuel Alford Mural Vandalized In The Northside

A suspect or suspects vandalized the Nitty and Alford mural at the 1400 block of W. Vliet Street.

Milwaukee, WI - The Frank Nitty and Samuel Alford mural was reported vandalized at the 1300 block of W. Vliet Street. The mural depicts images of multiple male and female African-American activists and community leaders in the social justice and Black Lives Matter movement.

Members in the African-American community are shocked to wakeup to a vandalized mural depicting local community Black leaders and organizers.

Nitty (birth name Frank Sensabaugh) in his Facebook account responded that it did take long for someone to deface his image in the mural and that it really doesn't bother him. Nitty posted on his FB account, "I want everyone to know...I'm not hurt at all by this....I'm not hurt by any of the attacks on me.....things like this can't affect me, I don't have the space to process it, or think about myself at this time.....people have real problems and we need real change and everyday I wake up and my life's goal is to do that....that's the only thing that I can concentrate's not about murals and awards, holidays and's not even about my personal life anymore....I don't have life is dedicated to the people..."

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales Contemplating Resignation Before The Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission Terminates His Contract

Morales has failed to hold his police officers accountable for misconduct, illegal acts, filing false police reports and murder of unarmed people of color.

July 17, 2020

Milwaukee, WI - According to police department sources, Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales met with the rank and file this week and is contemplating his resignation ahead of Monday's meeting with the Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission (MFPC), which multiple sources including the Milwaukee Police Association has indicated that Chief Morales's contract will not be renewed and will be terminated by the Commission. 

Other rank and file police commanders are also planning to retire, while many police supervisors and officers are leaving the department as well due to public and daily protests that have created pressure to bring about accountability, transparency and reform within the department.

On September 23, 2019, multiple police officers from police district station 2 assisted rogue U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in a frivolous arrest of undocumented immigrant Jose Alejandro De la Cruz-Espinosa, 38, in the Southside of Milwaukee. Police offficers after arresting De la Cruz-Espinosa, turned him over to ICE agents at the scene without a federal warrant signed by a judge. Chief Morales later testified that ICE agents had an active federal warrant and that De la Cruz-Espinosa would be arrested anyways. Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) learned that Chief Morales mislead the MFPC and that ICE agents didn't have a valid federal warrant signed by a judge as Morales falsely indicated but, ICE agents had an Administrative ICE warrant signed by an agent, which is deemed worthless and invalid to arrest an undocumented immigrant at a private home or property such as inside a vehicle.

Also, Chief Morales failed to hold accountable the officer or supervisor that released a police video of an interview of a known suspect, which revealed the name of a sexual assault victim. Apparently, it was later reported that Chief Morales was attempting to protect the suspect who was nominated to join the Board a Police Fund organization.

Chief Morales has also failed to follow Mayor Tom Barrett's recommendation to terminate Milwaukee Police Officer Michael Mattioli, 32, who was charged with the chokehold murder of Joel Acevedo, 26. Chief Morales has claimed that he does not have the authority to fire Mattioli, but in September 2018, Morales fired Erik Andrade, a police officer for posting a racist post on his personal Facebook account directed at Sterling Brown, a Milwaukee Bucks player who is African-American. Police Officer Andrade was involved in brutal arrest of Brown at the Walgreens parking lot at S. 27th Street and W. National Ave. on January 26, 2018 in Milwaukee.

Apparently, Chief Morales has practiced a double standard by firing Police Officer Andrade for posting a racist comment about Sterling on social media and not firing an off-dury Police Officer Mattioli who murdered Acevedo at a house party on April 19, 2020 hosted by Mattioli with the use of a chokehold for ten minutes. Two other suspects that helped Mattioli hold down Acevedo during the chokehold have not been charged in the homicide. Mattioli was charged with 1st-degree reckless homicide after three weeks of the murder.

The Acevedo family has filed for Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to release the 911 call and police officers body camera video footage from Mattioli's chokehold incident. Morales has denied the release of the video.

Officer Mattioli has been suspended with pay from the Milwaukee Police Department, according to the MFPC.

July 15, 2020

Milwaukee, WI - On Tuesday, Victor Huyke and Yussef Morales, the organizers announced that the Puerto Rican Family Fest committee had decided to cancel the August 2, 2020, 8th annual festival event due to the increase of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in the state and Milwaukee. The festival is now being planned for next year 2021, according to the organizers.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Tuesday signed the MKE Cares' Act, a citywide facemask ordinance unanimously passed by the Milwaukee Common Council on Monday making it mandatory for restaurants, bars and private business owners including operators to enforce the use of a facemask while in a public and indoor setting. Those business owners in violation will be fined between $50 to 500 and could have their business licenses revoked by order the City of Milwaukee Health Department.

Mayor Barrett confirmed that since March 13, 2020 when the first COVID-19 case was reported in the City, over 11,000 COVID-19 infection cases have now been reported in the City of Milwaukee, also over 14,000 Milwaukee County COVID-19 cases have been reported with 360 deaths and 37,906 positive COVID-19 cases reported in the State of Wisconsin with a total of 826 deaths as of Tuesday.

Barrett also said that the State of New York has added Wisconsin on their quarantine list, which those Wisconsinites traveling to NY would have to self-quarantine for two weeks when entering the state. Milwaukee nor Milwaukee County and Wisconsin have yet to implement such a quarantine list to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus into our City and state by visitors or travelers from other states with increased COVID-19 infections.

Dr. Juan Andrade, Jr., President Of USHLI Speaks Out In Support Of The Goya Foods Boycott

In response to Robert Unanue, CEO of Goya Foods praising Trump at the White House during a press conference.

Boycott Goya!

"We're all truly blessed, at the same time, to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder." I've known many vendidos during my career, and heard about many more, pero tu te tragaste la olla carajo! What the hell were you thinking?

Trump, a builder?  He may build hotels, but he destroys lives.  Are you not aware of the human crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border? Are you not aware of the thousands of Latino families Trump has separated and destroyed? Are you not aware of the thousands of innocent children, including infants and toddlers, who were put in cages after being taken away from their parents? Are you not aware that now those children may possibly have to live the rest of their lives never seeing their parents again? Are you not aware of the thousands of asylum seekers whose applications are being rejected by his judges, effectively condemning them to torture and death when they return home? Are you not aware of the 2.5 million DACA recipients, TPS and DED beneficiaries he is trying to deport? Are you not aware of the 20 million people, of whom 11 million are Latinos, who could lose their healthcare insurance, in the middle of a pandemic, if the Supreme Court rules in Trump's favor? Are you not aware of the hundreds of thousands of Latinos infected by the coronavirus because of his mismanagement? Are you not aware of the tens of thousands of Latinos killed by the virus because of his indifference? Are you not aware that Trump is a white supremacist who managed to unite enough bigots, racists, and anti-immigrant xenophobes to elect him President? Are you not aware that your so-called builder abused the powers of his office enough to get himself impeached? If you believe Trump's a builder, eres un menso!

Only people who value profit more than human life would feel blessed to have Trump as their President. But your millions of consumers, predominantly Latinos, people who value life more than money, do not feel similarly blessed to have Trump as President. Al contrario, es un demonio!

You can call the backlash you have brought on yourself "suppression of speech" if you want, but you've earned a national rebuke and boycott of your products. You weren't wrong to accept Trump's invitation, but what you said was wrong. Words have power … and consequences. You had every right to say what you did, but what you said was just plain wrong. Your remarks hurt millions of Latinos who have suffered greatly because of Trump's policies and treatment. They are the very Latinos who have made you rich, and you will pay for what you said. In November, Trump will pay for what he has said and done. BOYCOTT GOYA!

GOP Business Community Wants Democratic Governor Tony Evers To Exempt Them From Publicly Reporting Employee COVID-19 Cases

The Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and business community partners that allegedly finance campaigns for most of the GOP legislators in control of the Wisconsin state legislature want Democratic Governor Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to exempt such businesses from reporting positive COVID-19 employee cases to the public.

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

July 8, 2020

Madison. WI - On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC) and members of the business community who allegedly finance the campaigns for most of the GOP state legislators including the Republican Party of Wisconsin that control the state legislature today sent a letter to Democratic Governor Tony Evers attempting to keep the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WDHS) from publicly reporting positive tests results of their employees and naming companies, businesses and etc.

They indicated that, if the public discovers COVID-19 positive cases at their businesses and publicly naming the business or company could economically effect business. It seems that the WMC is focused more on the economic impact of reported employee COVID-19 cases than actually indicating that such businesses actually practiced COVID-19 safety measures recommended by the WDHS to prevent such cases.

But, what they failed to mention in the letter was that employees today should become aware of any employees who have tested positive at the workplace, which treatment would also be available and do provide Personnel Protection Equipment (PPE) including practicing COVID-19 safety working measures at the workplace to ensure all employees do work in a safe environment and if the business has temporarily closed, that they have also cleaned the immediate infected area at their business.

It would definitely be a disservice for consumers and the public not to become aware that a certain business, company and etc. has reported positive employee COVID-19 cases to the WDHS and that they have actually cleaned the infected area before continuing to operate.

In other words, as consumers in Wisconsin, everyone should be aware, if a local business has had employees tested positive for COVID-19 and whether that business has temporarily closed to clean up the infected area, so consumers can continue to do business with such businesses during the pandemic.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

July 6, 2020

Milwaukee, WI - On Monday, Griselda Aldrete, the Executive Director for the Milwaukee Fire & Police Commission filed and sent a letter of resignation to the Milwaukee Common Council. Aldrete was coming up for a reappointment vote on Tuesday by the Common Council, but decided not to seek reappointment to the position, but will stay on until someone gets hired to replace her.

Aldrete faced opposition to get rehired by members of Milwaukee Common Council after failing to accomplish her job in holding the Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) for certain questionable acts including a video leak of an investigation of an alledged sexual assault.

Also, not being able to comply with the federal lawsuit dealing certain requirements of reform that would have complied with the settlement of the Stop and Frisk lawsuit.

She attempted to bring some accountability to the Fire & Police Commission, but fell short from holding MPD and officers accountable for alleged illegal acts under Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales.

Off-duty Milwaukee Police Officer Matthew Willmann And Female Partner Allegedly Assaulted Several Photographers Covering Downtown Protest

An African-American female photographer allegedly claims that she and another White photographer were assaulted while covering a protest in Milwaukee by an off-duty Milwaukee police officer and a female, which later was discovered it was his wife, who both seemed to be intoxicated.

July 6, 2020

Milwaukee, WI - On Sunday, Milwaukee police responded to a possible assault (altercation) complaint incident at the 1000 block of N. Old World 3rd Street in front of the Milwaukee Brat House Bar & Grill where an off-duty White Milwaukee Police Officer identified as Matthew Willmann, 37  and a female partner (his wife identified as Marie, 36, "Maria") allegedly assaulted two photographers that were covering and documenting a downtown protest, which one is a female African-American identified as LaTasha Sangster Lux, according to her Facebook (FB) account where she posted about the incident.

Lux claims that she was physically assaulted (socked) by Willmann and his female partner also threw a drink at both photographers. Sean Kafer, the other photographer with Lux had his camera damaged as well.

In a video, off-duty Officer Willmann is seen walking up and striking Lux and then another man intervened quickly and pushed Willmann away causing him to fall backwards.

Lux posted on her FB account, "These fine Americans confronted a groups of peaceful protesters today by not only hurling obscenities and racial slurs, but the lady even threw a drink. Myself and another photographer who was documenting the protest were physically assaulted by the male resulting in camera damages. That last image is him right before he socked me. Please feel free to share. Let's make em' famous." She also posted Officer Willmann's photo including his female partner who seems to be smiling. Lux also indicated in a video posted as well that both Willmann and his female partner seemed intoxicated at the time of the assault.

Willmann and his female partner were not taken into custody at the scene. Lux says that she was told that, if she pressed charges against Willmann and his female partner, that in return, they will also press charges.

Police were able to see and recover outside surveillance video of the incident and police were able to take statements from multiple people who witnessed off-duty Milwaukee Police Officer Willmann and his wife assault both photographers, according to Lux.

The Milwaukee Police Department has yet to release a statement about Sunday's incident and why wasn't Officer Willmann and his wife taken into custody after police responding to the incident reviewed business surveillance video of the altercation at the scene.

Apparently, in another FB post by Jessica Kaminski indicated that it appears that both Lux anf Kafer were cited in the incident and Willmann and his were not. It has not been confirmed, if Lux and Kafer were actually cited by police.

Update: Milwaukee police cited Sean Kafer, a photographer for disorderly conduct for intentionally and without consent caused a disturbance in a city street. Off-duty Officer Willmann was cited by police for vandalism and was not arrested for assault and his wife who started the disturbance and verbal attack and tossed a drink at protesters was not cited by police. Neither Willmann nor his wife were arrested by police. The Milwaukee Police Department is investigating the incident that was caught on video, according to Wuwm dot com.

Bob Donovan Ignites Controversy Over Crossing Out "Defund the Police" Street Message On Photo, Now A Major Protest Is Being Organized In Front Of His Home In Milwaukee's Southside

The Milwaukee Southside is expected to witness one of the largest protests yet in the City and it's happening in front of former Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan's home during the 4th of July weekend.

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

July 3, 2020

Milwaukee, WI - On Thursday, Bethany Crevensten was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and blocking traffic in front of former Milwaukee Alderman Robert "Bob" Donovan's home after he called police and complained that a White woman was walking back and forth on the sidewalk in front of his home. Crevensten in a Facebook (FB) video is seen calling out to Donovan in a loud voice about him defacing a photo that he posted on his Alderman Bob Donovan FB page.

The Ontherize414 FB page called for a protest in front at Donovan's home and posted his address at the 1600 block of S. 28th in Milwaukee.

Neighbors and Donovan will no doubt see a large gathering in front of his home this weekend.

The protest will give Latinos in the Southside an opportunity to also join in the peaceful protest to support "No Justice, No Peace" marches, getting rid of systematic racism and to seek accountability for dirty cops who engage in illegal acts and murder unarmed people of color, including to defund the police from acquiring militarized equipment and vehicles to suppress the population including peaceful protesters. 

Since, Donovan has had a history of targeting taco trucks and creating an ordinance that would have banned taco trucks West of S. Historic Layton Blvd. on W. National Ave., which passed in the Milwaukee Common Council, but Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett vetoed the ordinance due to a public outcry. Soon after, Donovan decided to retire from the Milwaukee Common Council.

So it seems now, the biggest event in Milwaukee for the 4th of July will be taking place in front of Donovan's home.

Will the newly elected Alderwoman JoCasta Zamarripa who replace former Alderman Donovan in the 8th Aldermanic District and other Milwaukee Common Council members including public elected officials be attending the protest as well to make sure police don't retaliate against peaceful protesters for pushing to defund police and police accountabilty?

Word circulating in the Southside of Milwaukee, is that Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales went on vacation and will most likely miss the peaceful protest in front of Donovan's residence.

Security Guard In Milwaukee Was Video Recorded By His Partner Detaining And Telling A Mental Deficient Man To Commit A Sexual Act

Video shows security guard struggle with a mental deficient man, handcuffed his wrist and tells him to perform a sexual act on someone else.

Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

July 2, 2020

Milwaukee, WI - A disturbing video posted by Manuel Torres (also known as Jensen Torres) on Facebook showing Wisconsin Public Security LLC security guard Aramis Jose Vega Quiñones struggling with a man who seems to be exhibiting a mentally deficiency condition who was allegedly accused of stealing from a local grocery store, the Greenfield Pantry at the 1100 block of W. Greenfield Ave. in Milwaukee. Vega Quiñones apparently detained the man by placing a handcuff in one wrist and then tells him to tell Miguel that he "will eat his behind (ass)" on video in order to release him. Vega Quiñones also told the man not to ever bother him or Miguel, according to the video.

When contacted, an employee at Greenfield Pantry confirmed that Wisconsin Public Safety is doing security at the location.

We at Greenfield Pantry are investigating the Video that you posted today regarding our security company Wisconsin Public Security LLC.   We are disturbed by the video and will adress this and what our next steps are in the coming hours or day.  

Greenfield Pantry

A Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (WDFI) record search for Wisconsin Public Security LLC resulted that it has not been registered with the WDFI.

Apparently, Vega Quiñones, the security guard at the Greenfield Pantry is actually employed by Miguel Diaz Flores who operates under the Wisconsin Public Safety Agency.

When contacted, Miguel Diaz Flores also known as Michael Diaz wouldn't confirm or deny that he was associated with the Wisconsin Public Security LLC. Diaz says, that both security guards, Torres and Vega Quiñones don't work for him. A photo released to Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) by Jose Carrasquillo III on Facebook shows Vega Quiñones as the Assistant Chief of security for Wisconsin Public Safety.

For what ever reason to post the video, it was posted in poor taste and it only shows Vega Quiñones acting very unprofessional and definitely shows a lack of respect for the public including the victim that he targeted and harassed as a security guard while in uniform and wearing a badge, which also shows a lack of respect for Miguel as well.

Update (July 3, 2020): 

We at Greenfield Pantry have investigated the incident that was posted on your website yesterday and have decided to termintate our contract with our security company and as of tonight starting at 6p.m., we have a new security company handling our security needs.

Greenfield Pantry

En español: 

Un inquietante video publicado por Manuel Torres (conocido también como Jensen Torres) en Facebook que muestra al guardia de seguridad de la Seguridad Pública de Wisconsin LLC, Aramis José Vega Quiñones, luchando con un hombre que parece estar exhibiendo una condición de deficiencia mental que supuestamente fue acusado de robar en un supermercado local, la Greenfield Pantry en la cuadra 1100 W. Greenfield Ave. en Milwaukee. Aparentemente, Vega Quiñones detuvo al hombre colocando una esposas en una muñeca y luego le dice que le diga a Miguel que "se va a comer el trasero (culo)" en video para liberarlo. Vega Quiñones también le dijo al hombre que nunca lo molestara a él ni a Miguel, según el video. 

Cuando se contactó, un empleado de Greenfield Pantry confirmó que Wisconsin Public Safety está haciendo seguridad en el lugar.

Nosotros en la Greenfield Pantry estamos investigando el video que publicaron hoy con respecto a nuestra compañía de seguridad Wisconsin Public Security LLC. El video nos molesta y abordaremos esto y cuáles son nuestros próximos pasos en las próximas horas o días. 

Gracias Despensa Greenfield

Una búsqueda de registros del Departamento de Instituciones Financieras de Wisconsin (WDFI) para Wisconsin Public Security LLC resultó en que no se ha registrado con el WDFI. 

Aparentemente, Vega Quiñones, el guardia de seguridad de la Greenfield Pantry, en realidad es empleado de Miguel Díaz Flores, quien opera bajo la Agencia de Seguridad Pública de Wisconsin.

Cuando HNNUSA contacto a Miguel Díaz Flores, también conocido como Michael Díaz, no confirmó ni negó que estuviera asociado con Wisconsin Public Security LLC. Pero dice Diaz los dos guardias de seguridad, Torres y Vega Quiñones ya no trabajan para él. Una foto publicada en Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) por José Carrasquillo III en Facebook muestra a Vega Quiñones como el Subdirector de seguridad de Wisconsin Public Safety.

Por cualquier razón para publicar el video, fue publicado con mal gusto y solo muestra a Vega Quinones actuando de manera poco profesional y definitivamente muestra una falta de respeto para el público, incluida a la víctima a la que atacó y acosó como guardia de seguridad mientras estaba en uniforme y usando una insignia, que también muestra una falta de respeto por Miguel.

Actualización (3 de julio de 2020):

Nosotros en Greenfield Pantry hemos investigado el incidente que se publicó ayer en su sitio web y hemos decidido rescindir nuestro contrato con nuestra compañía de seguridad y a partir de esta noche de las 6 p.m., tenemos una nueva compañía de seguridad que maneja nuestras necesidades de seguridad.
