‘Day Without Latinos’ protesters march to Milwaukee County Courthouse, denounce Sheriff Clarke

, Feb. 13, 2017

Thousands of protesters gathered on S. 5th St. and marched toward the Milwaukee County Courthouse Monday as part of a “Day Without Latinos, Immigrants and Refugees” protest in Milwaukee.

The marchers made their way over the 6th Street viaduct and gathered at the courthouse for a rally.

'Day Without Latinos' protesters march to Milwaukee County Courthouse, denounce Sheriff ClarkeThe march was organized by advocacy groups including Voces de la Frontera, and focused on Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.  Speakers denounced Clarke’s plan to enroll his deputies in a federal program that allows them to act as immigration agents.

Earlier Monday, Clarke voiced support for an immigration crackdown launched in the past several days by ICE agents.

” Nobody has a RIGHT to come to the U.S.,” the sheriff wrote on his department Facebook page. “You can however make a REQUEST to come here through our immigration service.”

Clarke also said: “There must be a zero tolerance for allowing people to illegally enter this country and establish permanent residency.”

Clarke sarcastically referred to the protest on his Facebook page last week, saying “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. Since it seems that the Trump Administration are singularly unaware of the fact that demonstrations like these are funded by Soros and his NGO’s, here is something that we all can do to send a message to the Trump Administration to curtail Soros’s activity;

    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/issue-international-arrest-warrant-george-soros

    Please take the 30 seconds or so needed to go to that website and sign the petition to have an international arrest warrant issued for George Soros. Perhaps this will signal to President Trump that his greatest enemy is another member of the 1% crowd. If action isn’t taken to stop the funding of groups like BLM by Soros, then we will be facing a (nother) civil war.
