Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Thursday asked the Fire and Police Commission to review an incident in which officers are captured on video assisting immigration agents in the arrest of an undocumented immigrant.
The video is proof of collaboration between the Milwaukee Police Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera.
The group reiterated the claim at a news conference at City Hall on Thursday after the cancellation of a meeting of the Fire and Police Commission's policies and research committee on proposed revisions to the Police Department's policy regarding immigration enforcement.
The meeting was canceled after video of the apprehension was released to the media.
"It is undeniable from video recordings … that Milwaukee Police Department collaborates with ICE to break up families,” Christine Neumann-Ortiz, executive director of Voces de la Frontera, said in a statement.
“It is exactly why we have been calling on Mayor Barrett, Police Chief (Alfonso) Morales and members of the Fire and Police Commission to support revising existing MPD language to ensure incidents like these do not happen."
