Milwaukee, WI – On Wednesday, Voces de la Frontera Action (VDLFA), the political affiliate to the non-profit Voces de la Frontera, an immigrant and workers rights organization announced that a march and rally is set for November 10 to protest the anti-immigrant rhetoric by the Republican Presidential candidates. The GOP candidates running for the nomination of the Republican Party label as president will be in Milwaukee for a scheduled debate.
VDLFA, supporters and immigrants including allies are marching for justice for immigrants, a $15 minimum wage and for Black Lives Matter, according to a flyer circulating in the Milwaukee metropolitan area. The march will begin at 4:00 p.m. starting at the VDLFA office, 1027 S. 5th St. and will head to City Hall at 200 E. Wells St. The marchers will meet up with other allies at City Hall and then march to the Republican debate event at the Milwaukee Theater, 500 W. Kilbourn Ave.
The Milwaukee Theater has a capacity of 4,086 and the Republican National Committee confirmed, that the Republican debate for Milwaukee has been sold out.
The presidential candidates will debate on jobs, taxes, the national economy, domestic and international policy issues. Most of the candidates are anti-immigrant and have agreed with Donald Trump on deporting about 11M undocumented immigrants that would lead to separating families, if elected. The candidates have shown non-support for DREAMers or DAPA, which would allow their parents to legally stay in the U.S.
Trump and some of the candidates believe that children born in the U.S. to undocumented parents shouldn’t be U.S. Citizens and would like to strip their citizenship, if elected.
