Thousands Protest Against Immigration Crackdown In Milwaukee

Fact checked

A proposed crackdown on illegal immigration by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has forced thousands of protestors to gather in the south side of the city.

Thousands of Wisconsin demonstrators took part in the “Day Without Latinos” protest march on Monday to stop local law enforcement officers getting deputised as federal immigration agents.

Activists travelling by bus from at least twelve cities across the states raised both American and Mexican flags and headed for Milwaukee County Courthouse to see Sheriff David Clarke.

Sputnik reports:

Organized by Hispanic advocacy group Voces de la Frontera, demonstrators say that Clarke’s plans to enroll deputies in a federal 287G program empowering them to act as immigration agents effectively gives officers carte blanche to profile and harass the Latino population.

The demonstration, which took place at the Milwaukee County Courthouse is a part of a “Day Without Latinos, Immigrants and Refugees.” Inclusive Wisconsin, Muslim and other immigration advocacy groups helped to organize the action as well.

As many as 20,000 participants from places like Green Bay, Appleton and Madison are expected to attend.

The notoriously conservative Clarke, known for his support of US President Donald Trump and his vocal opposition to the Black Lives Movement, wrote on the department Facebook page, ” Nobody has a RIGHT to come to the U.S….You can however make a REQUEST to come here through our immigration service.”

Last week, he wrote sarcastically on Facebook, “Please accept my regrets. I will be working with agents from immigration and customs enforcement helping them identify criminal illegal aliens and therefore cannot attend your rally being held for me.”


  1. Okay. How about we fire the ungrateful punks that pull these stunts, hire REAL AMERICANS, and ship them back to Mexico and the middle east where they belong? No one is going to come here and tell ME how to live in MY country. If I had it my way, I’d turn the day without Mexicans and Muslims into a forever without them. Either adapt and assimilate to OUR culture or GTFO!

  2. On closer inspection, we will likely find Barry Soetoro’s “OFA” (dis-organize for america) all over this sedition! As a foreigner himself, and illegal alien, he doesn’t have to worry about sedition charges! Those laws are ONLY FOR AMERICANS!
    Shut that POS down!

  3. these protestors should be gassed so the government can get on with cleaning up the shit that previous governments let manifest…these shitbag people from other countries that are in America illegally…should be sent back to their shithole…AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
