Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has approved new Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) policies to allow MPD officers to investigate immigration status at anytime. Other changes force officers to call ICE directly if they detain someone they think is an immigrant.
Mayor Barrett and the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission can still rescind the policies. On Thursday, July 13th, hundreds of Milwaukee immigrant community members and supporters will pack City Hall to attend the Fire and Police Commission hearing and urge Mayor Tom Barrett and the FPC to rescind new policies. Community members will rally at 5pm at City Hall before attending the 5:30 FPC meeting.
