Milwaukee, WI – On Tuesday, a massive protest and march against Trump and two other candidates for the Republican nomination for president will take place in Milwaukee. Voces de la Frontera (VDLF), a workers and immigrant rights organization called on Latinos from Wisconsin and surrounding states to unite and peacefully protest Trump’s bigoted campaign that has spread hate and promoted violence against those protesting its White supremacy racist propaganda targeting Latinos, Afro-Americans and Muslims, including undocumented immigrants and other minorities in America. Trump has referred to his hate speech as politically correct speech today, but hate speech is not considered free speech by protesters.
VDLF, Latinos and supporters will march from the Milwaukee Southside to downtown and will meet up with other groups to protest Trump’s White supremacy campaign to spread hate and violence against Latinos and other minorities in the U.S. Trump was endorse by White supremacy groups, which are helping him to spread hate targeted at Latinos, Afro-Americans and Muslim-Americans.
When Trump first announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president, he falsely accused Mexico of sending rapists and criminals to the U.S. illegally and then recently generalized that in order to keep terrorists out of America after the Brussels bombing attacks, Muslims must be prevented from visiting or immigrating to the U.S.
Also Ted Cruz, another Republican candidate added fuel to Trump’s bigoted speech by suggesting that Muslim neighborhoods where large concentrations of the Muslim population reside should be patrolled by law enforcement to prevent terrorism. Cruz couldn’t specifically identified an area where he thought terrorist cells existed to support his call for patrolling Muslim communities.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. hasn’t confirmed, if he will help provide added security for Trump in Milwaukee along with the Secret Service and Milwaukee police after VDLF and another group petitioned the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors to prevent Sheriff Clarke from participating in security after he went on FOX News and suggested that Trump supporters when faced with counter protesters to “hit first and hit hard” when they faced a threat of an attack by an anti-hate protester.
Other protests in Wisconsin against Trump events are expected in Janesville and Green Bay as well.
The Secret Service says that it will monitor all the organized protests against Trump and his campaign events.
Information leaked from Republican Governor Scott Walker’s Office indicates that he will most likely endorse Trump for the Republican nomination for president and as a gesture of good will, he is expected to sign the Republican legislative bill SB 533 into law prohibiting local municipal identification cards to be issued to undocumented immigrants in Milwaukee County. A similar bill was introduced in the Arizona state legislature, but it failed to pass.
SB 533 was co-sponsored by WI Republican State Representative Yesenia Eldermira Rodriguez, aka, “Jessie Rodriguez” from Franklin who was an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador and later became legalized in the U.S.
In Milwaukee: People participating in the protest will gather in front of the Voces de la Frontera offices at 1027 S. 5th Street on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at 4:30 p.m. and the march will then proceed at 5:00 p.m. to the Milwaukee downtown Riverside Theater where Trump and the two other candidates will participate in a Republican debate hosted by CNN.
