Milwaukee Sheriff Clarke Signs Letter Of Intent To Help ICE Identify “Criminal Illegal Aliens”

Sheriff David Clarke has long been one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies in the country.

Now, he’s looking to work with the new administration to help federal agents identify “criminal illegal aliens.”

WUWM reports:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has signed a letter of intent to take part in the federal government’s 287(g) Task Force/Jail Enforcement program. It trains local law enforcement and then gives it authority to enforce immigration violations.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, it currently partners with 37 law enforcement agencies in 16 states.

In response to Clarke’s announcement, the immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera released a statement promising “massive resistance” to the sheriff’s action, which Voces claims could result in racial profiling, interrogations and deportations.

Here’s Sheriff Clarke tweeting his announcement:

And his support for Trump:

Sheriff Clarke wants to enforce the law.

Of course the open borders lobby will be furious!
