Attention Voces de la Frontera community!
Last Sunday, Voces held our first emergency meeting to inform the public that Representative Pridemore is now circulating his Arizona-style immigration enforcement bill for co-sponsors in Madison. Over 500 concerned members of the community showed up to strategize on how to defeat this bill, which would be devastating for our community, as it would legalize racial profiling and lead to more deportations. (To read the bill yourself, go here:media.journalinteractive.com/documents/11-11161+%282%29.pdf)
Please come to our second emergency meeting this weekend, both in Milwaukee and Racine, for new updates and strategies.
