BACKGROUND

The Wisconsin state legislature is considering racist legislation that could make Wisconsin a hostile environment for immigrants.

AB 450 would lead police and public employees to investigate immigration status and detain undocumented people for deportation. SB 533 seeks to block a program created last year to provide local identification cards to Milwaukee residents who cannot obtain Wisconsin state ID because of immigration status or lack of documents or money.

These bills are part of a broader effort to make Wisconsin hostile to immigrants. Wisconsin’s economy depends on immigrants, and immigrant communities enrich our state’s culture.

Take a moment right now to urge Governor Walker and your lawmakers to oppose these bills.

Please enter your information to get started. And thanks for taking action. Together we can make sure these misguided bills never become law.
