May Day Highlights – Voces de la Frontera – Milwaukee
WNPJ member group Voces de la Frontera was featured in a May 2 New York Times report on immigrant-rights marches around the country: Milwaukee had one of the more robust turnouts, with thousands of people gathering, as they did last year.
Protesters called on the presidential candidates, each of whom has supported Congressional efforts to allow a way for certain illegal immigrants to gain legal status, to make immigration issues a priority. ‘We want a commitment from the three presidential candidates to pass humane immigration reform in the first 100 days in office,’ said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, director of Voces de la Frontera, the main organization behind the Milwaukee march.
