Groups that aid migrant workers in Door and Kewaunee Counties say last week’s arrests of undocumented immigrants have many family members fearing their future. Two undocumented workers in Door County and four in Kewaunee County were among 83 people in Wisconsin arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Sister Melanie Maczka of Casa ALBA in Green Bay says many migrant families are scared.
Imedla Delchambre of the Hispanic Resource Center for Door and Kewaunee Counties says adding to the fear is not knowing whether the legal system is honoring the rights of those arrested.
A “Rock the Vote” event geared toward Hispanics was held in Green Bay Tuesday night. But Sister Melanie says people were scared off for fear of being arrested.
