In an interview Wednesday afternoon on right wing talk radio, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke announced he will leave office next month for a job with the Trump Administration as an Assistant Secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. Voces de la Frontera issued the following statement from Executive Director Christine Neumann-Ortiz.
“Clarke is unfit for any office and should face criminal charges for the deaths and abuses at the jail. Trump’s appointment of Clarke shows this administration’s disregard for human rights. Scott Walker must appoint a sheriff who will withdraw from 287g, end collaboration with Trump’s campaign of mass deportation and terror against immigrant families, and support reforms to prevent deaths and abuses at the Milwaukee County Jail.”
