Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Saturday, Raoul G. Deal, a community artist and students from ArtWorks for Milwaukee unveiled their historic United Migrant Opportunity Services (UMOS) mural at the Butters-Fetting Co. building wall facing W. Historic Mitchell St. and S. 1st Street. The mural took about 1 year and 6 months to finish, according to Deal.
The theme of the mural included the Wautoma marches for migrant rights, the UMOS social service agency advocacy for social justice, higher education, civil rights and struggle including protests to change the discriminatory hiring practices by the local breweries and the foundry jobs that attracted the Latino work force to the city.
Seven members of the Latino community were included in the mural, Jesús Salas, the first former executive director of UMOS and one of the key leaders of the educational and Latino civil rights movement in the 1960's and 1970's; Ernesto Chacon, the executive director for Latin American Union for Civil Rights; Roberto Hernández, an instrumental leader in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chapman Hall takerover on August 27, 1970 that led to breaking down the barrier of a discriminatory policy that kept Hispanics from enrolling at the university; Graciela de la Cruz, a UWM student in 1970 who later became a teacher in the Milwaukee Public Schools; Dante Navarro, the first Latino candidate to run for public office in Milwaukee, created the first LULAC council in Milwaukee and was a Spanish language radio host as well and Marla O. Anderson, an instrumental leader of the UWM takeover as well. Anderson's decision to join Salas and Chacon in 1970 led to the active participation of hundreds of families to back, join and march in support of the UWM takeover to gain access to higher education for Latinos and their children. Anderson later graduated from the School of Education at UWM with a Bachelor of Science degree in May 1978.
Salas, Hernández and De la Cruz were students at UWM of only 14 Latinos attending compared to 25,000 Whites students enrolled in 1970. Navarro, Anderson and Salas were among those that included Gregorio "Goyo" Rivera and José Luis Huerta-Sánchez who were arrested at the UWM chancellor's office at Chapman Hall on August 27, 1970 for refusing to leave his office. Also Lupe Martinez, the current UMOS President and CEO who has 47 years of service at the non-profit agency was featured in the mural too.
The UMOS mural depicts just a small piece of the Latino community historical activism roots that influenced change to better the quality of life for Hispanics in the city of Milwaukee and state for decades to follow. 

Jesús Salas explained the meaning of the mural. Salas is a former executive director of UMOS and one of the key leaders of the 1960's and 1970's educational and civil rights movement in Milwaukee, WI. http://youtu.be/TR7FaBV6dwQ

May 17, 2017

Milwaukee, WI - On Wednesday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. announced during a conservative radio talk show with Viki McKenna on WISN 1130 AM, that he will accept an assistant secretary position in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) next month. Clarke will join the Office of Partnership and Engagement at the DHS.
What does it mean for Milwaukee County? Sheriff Clarke's acceptance of the position will no doubt void the 287g ICE enforcement agreement request by Clarke and it will no longer be applied at the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office in Wisconsin.
It seems that Sheriff Clarke jumped the gun and unofficially confirmed that he accepted the position with DHS, but the DHS sent out a tweet that "Sr. positions are announced when made official by the Sec. No such announcement w/regard to the Office of Public Engagement has been made."
Governor Scott Walker (R) can appoint another replacement for Sheriff Clarke.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) first Tweeted on March 22, that Sheriff Clarke was expected to resign from his position when it was learned from a credible source that Clarke would actually resign.
Currently, the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office has reported multiple inmate deaths and one of them, Terrill Thomas had his water turned off in his cell and he died from the lack of drinking water.
At least seven Milwaukee County Correction officers are facing criminal charges by the district attorney's office after a grand jury recommended charges.
The seven county officials who may now face charges in connection with the Thomas death by withholding water for seven days are Milwaukee County jail commander Major Nancy Evans, Lt. Kashka Meadors and corrections officers Jordon Johnson, Thomas Laine, James Ramsey-Guy, John Weber and Dominique Smith.

Boycott Harley-Davidson Corporation, They Openly Support Trump

The season of riding free on your Harley-Davidson began with the first H-D Museum Bike Night event in Milwaukee on Thursday, but a boycott is on against the H-D Corporation for openly supporting the bad hombre, Trump.

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

May 11, 2017

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - A national boycott has been called against the Harley-Davidson Corporation (H-D) for openly supporting the bad hombre, Trump. This year, President Trump was scheduled to visit the H-D Corporate, but cancelled after thousands of Wisconsin residents threaten to protest at the H-D factory where Trump was scheduled to visit. So, the H-D Corporate officials went to the White House instead with motorcycles and openly supported the bad hombre, Trump who is attempting to repeal ObamaCare, is anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, doesn't respect women and definitely doesn't show any favorable action towards people of color.
There are 100's of thousands of male bikers and female bikers who ride an H-D motorcycle, but most were purchased before the H-D Corporate officials made the decision to support and back Trump. Well it was their choice to stand with Trump, despite public opinion to boycott all of Trump name products and etc.
So, lets show the H-D Corporation that as long as they stand with Trump, we as bikers of color will stand with the people and flex our trillion dollar purchasing power as Latinos and will not buy their products or attend any H-D funded event.
On Thursday, the H-D Museum held its first bike night set and displayed a defaced U.S. flag, which no doubt many will consider the act disrespectful.
Apparently, the H-D Corporation officials have become victims of their own ignorance. Boycott Harley-Davidson 2017!

Alt-right Group Advisory Board Responsible For Hate Outdoor Ad In Milwaukee's Latino Community

An alt-right group registered as sheriffclarkeforsenate dot com is behind a hate and racist outdoor ad placed on a LAMAR billboard targeted at the Milwaukee Southside Latino community.

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

May 10, 2017

Milwaukee, WI - Hispanic News Network U.S.A. has learned that an alleged alt-right group registered as sheriffclarkeforsenate dot com authorized what many members of the Milwaukee Southside Latino community believe is an outdoor ad that promotes hate towards immigrants and division in the City of Milwaukee. According the sheriffclarkeforsenate dot com website, the group is based in N. Carolina and is headed by Jack Daley, which the political committee is registered with the Federal Election Commission as a Political Action Committee (PAC) and a Draft Committee attempting to persuade Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. to run for the U.S. Senate against U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin, a Democrat in November of 2018.
The PAC sheriffclarkeforsenate dot com committee advisory board also includes, Duane Chapman, Robert Davi, Nathanael Pendley, Cody Stanton, Beth Chapman, Elbert Guillory, Kay Daley and Michael Searcy.
The Clarke draft ad was placed by LAMAR who operates the billboard at the 1600 block of W. Greenfield Ave. and S. César E. Chavez Dr., and it was paid for by the sheriffclarkeforsenate dot com committee.
Members of the Milwaukee Latino community also believe that the sheriffclarkeforsenate dot com is just a front for the movement of White nationalists and their affiliated allies who promote hate and division among communities of color and in this case the Latino community in Milwaukee.
A community boycott has been initiated against LAMAR for promoting hate and division in the city for profit and word about the boycott is spreading across Milwaukee. LAMAR administrators in Milwaukee have been contacted via email about the outdoor hate ad and so far, there has been no response.
The ad appears that it is only a U.S. Senate draft campaign by an anti-immigrant and alt-right group connected to the GOP who has raised funds to attempt to persuade Sheriff Clarke to run for the U.S. Senate.
The alt-right group ad includes the phrase "He Protects Citizens...not Alien Criminals" are they trying to indicate that UFO aliens are committing crimes in Milwaukee too?
So Sheriff Clarke, according to the alt-right group sponsoring the ad believes that undocumented immigrants shouldn't be protected by Clarke, which by federal law and Constitutional rights are actually protected and includes due process as well whether they are U.S. Citizens or not.
The seems that the alt-right group lacks any knowledge of what the U.S. Constitution stands for, means and who it protects including Civil Rights. The PAC has a several attorneys in the advisory board, but they might not understand that even undocumented imigrants have rights and are afforded due process of the law as well.
Currently, the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office is under investigation for the homicide of Terrill Thomas who died of thirst after his was denied water for seven days. Recently, a Milwaukee County inquest jury found that seven county officials may now face criminal charges in connection with Thomas death for withholding water are Milwaukee County jail commander Major Nancy Evans, Lt. Kashka Meadors and corrections officers Jordon Johnson, Thomas Laine, James Ramsey-Guy, John Weber and Dominique Smith. Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm will now determine whether to file criminal charges against the seven county officials. Also, Milwaukee County Corrections Captain George Gold resigned during an inquest to the dehydration death of Thomas at the Milwaukee County jail. Gold's name was not included in the inquest jury list for criminal charges, but Gold is being investigated, if he had any connection to the case as well.
Clarke had attempted to keep multiple inmate deaths at the jail quiet under internal investigations until the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the deaths. Clarke criticized the medical examiner for informing the public of the pending death investigations by the sheriff's office.
Sheriff Clarke is expected to resign at any day to take a position as assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Partnership and Engagement in Trump's regime, according to Politico.


Mexican Military Killed Unarmed Man In Cold Blood In Palmarito Tochapan

The Mexican military version of what happened on May 3 in Palmarito Tochapan was false, according to El Diario Cambio who released a video version of what actually occurred.

May 10, 2017

Palmarito, Tochapan, México - On Wednesday, el Diario Cambio released a security video, which contradicts the Mexican military version of what had occurred on May 3 where 11 military personnel were reported injured, 4 soldiers were killed and 6 civilians were also killed during a three hour gun battle by unknown attackers. The military version of the incident says, that a military unit came under fire just after 8:00 p.m. by unknown assailants who used women and children as human shilelds.
The military was called to investigate an incident where gasoline was stolen by unknown suspects.
The released video by El Diario Cambio showed a different version of the incident where three unarmed men in a vehicle were fired upon by the military and then one of the victims who was wounded, was dragged and while face down on the ground bleeding, a Mexican soldier shot him in the back of the head while other soldiers looked on.
The cold blooded killing of the male victim has drawn concern in the area where the incident occurred that the Mexican military is corrupt and committing murder of innocent people.
The Mexican government hasn't come forward yet to address the brutal cold blooded murder of the victim in Palmarito.

Amanda Vanetta Threatened Operators Of Berta's Taco Truck For Displaying Upside Down U.S. Flag

Vanetta exercised her own ignorance to threaten the operators of Berta's taco truck for displaying a U.S. flag upside down on S. César E. Chavez Drive.

May 8, 2017

Milwaukee, WI - On Monday, Amanda Vanetta, posted on her Facebook account that she spotted a Berta's taco truck with a U.S. flag upside down and resorted to threaten the operator of the fast food truck by saying that it was illegal and if they wouldn't remove it or fix it up right that she would take it down.
Apparently, Vanetta who video recorded the incident herself doesn't know by her own ignorance that it is the not illegal to display the U.S. flag upside down and by attempting to remove it, she is committing an illegal act herself. An upside-down U.S. flag means distress.
The incident happened at the 1000 block of S. César E. Chavez Drive in Milwaukee, WI.
With in minutes of posting her video in Facebook (FB) as an attempt to attack the Berta's taco truck operators, Vanetta became the laughing stock in the Milwaukee area and comments flooded on her posting criticising her and most were making fun of her ignorance. Vanetta became the victim of her own ignorance and deleted her video posting as FB users began to post her debts found in the court system as well. The FB crowd became so fierce, that Vanetta had to delete her post.
She even changed her FB name to Panda Manda.

Amanda Vanetta's video of incident: https://youtu.be/rtqMb45HwQg


Update: Javier Reyes, the owner of Berta's Tamales and Taco truck in Milwaukee contacted Hispanic News Network U.S.A. on Tuesday and stated that he was replacing the U.S. flag for its old age and while doing it he unintentionally placed it upside down without realizing it. Reyes said, that it was an unfortunate mistake on his part and didn't want to offend anyone. He also says, that he is so grateful for all the support he has received from the public and Facebook users.


Seven Victim's Names Of The Bay View 1886 State Militia Labor Workers Massacre To Be Added To Memorial

Seven trees and a memorial was erected in Bay View to recognized the 1886 state militia massacre of seven unarmed labor workers killed while trying to advocate for an eight-hour work day. The Bay View Rolling Mills historical marker and memorial didn't include the names of the victims, but are only identified as "people."

May 8, 2017

Bay View, WI (HNNUSA) - On Sunday, the Wisconsin Labor Historical Society and multiple public elected officials agreed to work together to add the names of the seven victims killed by the Wisconsin state militia in Bay View on May 5, 1886 to the current memorial. Most of the victims were among 1,500 people struggling to enact an eight-hour work day to coincide with the national movement in 1886. A memorial to commemorate them and seven trees were planted in their recognition at E. Russell Ave. and S. Superior St. in Bay View, but the seven victims names were never added and were only identified as "people." H. Nelson Goodson from the Milwaukee Southside neighborhood attended the 131st Anniversary of the tragic event and noticed that the names of the victims were not included in the erected memorial, but their names were only mentioned during the re-enactment of the massacre. When most to the public elected officials, including Wisconsin State Senator Chris Larson (D), State Representatives Christine Sinicki (D), Jonathan Brostoff (D) and Fred P. Kessler (D), Milwaukee Alderman T. Anthony Zielinski, Milwaukee County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic and others were called and invited to come up front to be recognized by those attending, Goodson took the opportunity to asked when will all of the public elected officials and those sponsoring the event will come together to add the names of the seven victims to the current memorial? They all agreed including the public attending that it was a good idea to do so and the sponsor of the event will work to make sure the victim's names, Frank Kunkel, Frank Nowarczyk, John Marsh, Robert Erdman, Johann Zazka, Martin Jankowiak, and Michael Ruchalski will be added to the memorial.

Bay View, Wisconsin - On Sunday, May 7, Luz Sosa, the union Vice President of the American Federation of Teachers in Wisconsin and Community Organizer for Acción Ciudadana de Wisconsin will be the invited keynote speaker at the Bay View re-enactment of the 131st Anniversary of the May 5, 1886 Wisconsin State militia massacre of seven unarmed labor workers, Frank Kunkel, Frank Nowarczyk, John Marsh, Robert Erdman, Johann Zazka, Martin Jankowiak, and Michael Ruchalski near the Bay View Rolling Mills manufacturing company. The ceremony is open to the public and Sosa will be speaking around 3:00 p.m. at the historical marker located at the corner of E. Russell Ave. and S. Superior St. in Bay View.
A public and labor workers march will assemble at 1:30 p.m. at the corner of S. Bay St. and E. Lincoln Ave., then it will proceed at 2:00 p.m. to the historical marker location. Music will be provided as well. The event is sponsored by the Wisconsin Labor Historical Society (WLHS).
History in brief: According to the WLHS, Wisconsin's most historic and bloody labor incident occurred on May 5, 1886 on the shores of Lake Michigan in the Bay View area of Milwaukee. That day dawned after four days of massive worker demonstrations throughout Milwaukee on behalf of the creation of eight-hour day laws. Milwaukee was part of the national movement to create an eight-hour work day.
As some 1,500 workers marched toward the Bay View Rolling Mills (then the area's biggest manufacturer) urging the workers there to join the march, the State Militia lined up on a hill with guns poised.  The marchers were ordered to stop form some 200 yards away; when they didn't, the militiamen fired into the crowd, killing seven unarmed workers.
The marchers dispersed and the eight-hour days marches ended. The incident, in spite of its immediate end to eight-hour day efforts, spurred workers and their families to look forward to build a more progressive society in Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
Eventually, the eight-hour work day in the U.S. was later achieved.


Update: Luz Sosa's speech at the Bay View 131st Anniversary of the massacre of 7 workers by the state militia on May 5, 1886. Most of the workers killed were among 1,500 people struggling to enact an eight-hour work day. https://youtu.be/McAMLoXA0xw

Billboard Hate Ad By LAMAR And Alt-right Group Targeted At Latino Community Draws Controversy

LAMAR advertising billboard company promotes hate towards the Hispanic community with alt-right propaganda

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

May 5, 2017

Milw., WI - Controversial Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. billboard ad appears in Milwaukee's Southside, in the heart of the Hispanic community at the 1600 block of W. Greenfield Ave. and S. César E. Chavez Dr. It appears that it is only a U.S. Senate draft campaign by an anti-immigrant and alt-right White nationalist group who has raised funds to attempt to persuade Sheriff Clarke to run for the U.S. Senate.
The alt-right White nationalist ad includes the phrase "He Protects Citizens...not Alien Criminals" are they trying to indicate that UFO aliens are committing crimes in Milwaukee too?
So Sheriff Clarke, according to the White nationalist group sponsoring the ad believes that undocumented immigrants shouldn't be protected by Clarke, which by federal law and Constitutional rights are actually protected and includes due process as well whether they are U.S. Citizens or not.
The White nationalist group lacks any knowledge of what the U.S. Constitution stands for, means and who it protects including Civil Rights.
The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office is under investigation for the homicide of Terrill Thomas who died of thirst after he was denied water for seven days. Recently, a Milwaukee County inquest jury found that seven county officials may now face criminal charges in connection with Thomas death for withholding water are Milwaukee County jail commander Major Nancy Evans, Lt. Kashka Meadors and corrections officers Jordon Johnson, Thomas Laine, James Ramsey-Guy, John Weber and Dominique Smith. Milwaukee County District Attorney John T.

Also, Milwaukee County Corrections Captain George Gold resigned during an inquest to the dehydration death of Thomas at the Milwaukee County jail. Gold's name was not included in the inquest jury list for criminal charges, but Gold is being investigated, if he had any connection to the case as well.
Clarke had attempted to keep multiple inmate deaths at the jail quiet under internal investigations until the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the deaths. Clarke criticized the medical examiner for informing the public of the pending death investigations by the sheriff's office.
Sheriff Clarke is expected to resign at any day to take a position as assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Office of Partnership and Engagement in Trump's regime, according to Politico.
On Friday, Hispanic News Network U.S.A. contacted LAMAR executives and staff via e-mail concerning the controversial ad and a request to remove it due to its racist content that targets the Latino immigrant community and promotes hate. None of the LAMAR executives or staff responded, but will update once they do decide to deal with the matter. It seems LAMAR executives are putting profits first instead of condemning such advertising content and lack of sensitivity toward a large immigrant segment of the Milwaukee population.

Editors note:

The Latino community shouldn't allow this type of self hate promoting ads to be placed in their neighborhoods. The Hispanic community and allies should boycott LAMAR for accountability.

Thousands Marched Once Again In Milwaukee Seeking The Ouster Of Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr.

Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke Jr. once again became the target for ouster by Voces de la Frontera in Milwaukee for attempting to join the 287g ICE program.

By H. Nelson Goodson

May 1, 2017

Milwaukee, WI - On Monday, thousands of participants marched regardless of slight rain showers from the Southside of Milwaukee to the Milwaukee County Courthouse in downtown seeking support from Governor Scott Walker (R) to remove Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. from office. Sheriff Clarke requested to join the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) 287g program, which allows for deputies to ask for legal status from suspected undocumented immigrants.
Governor Walker has said, that it is not his job to remove Clarke. Sheriff Clarke was elected to office and has not been charged for any wrongdoing or convicted of a felony.
Voces de la Frontera an immigrant and workers rights organization sponsored the march. Last February, more than 165 local and statewide Latino businesses closed for one day during an immigrant march and an estimated  $1.3M of business loss was endured by the owners. If the same Latino businesses closed once again this time around, it is estimated that the Latino business owners faced another $1.3M loss as well, totalling at least $2.6M in business loss, within less than four months.
At the rally in the Milwaukee County Court House, Christine Neumann-Ortiz, the executive director of Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) announced that VDLF will join the national boycott of Wells Fargo and Chase Banks who are the largest financial bank institutions for the private prison corporations.
This year, Acción Ciudadana de Wisconsin (ACW) also participated in the immigrant march and many business owners who are members also closed their businesses in support of the immigrant community, according to Luz Sosa, the Community Organizer for ACW.

Alt-right Funded LIBRE Attempts To Root In Milwaukee's Latino Community

The LIBRE Initiative by Americans for Prosperity Foundation is funded and connected to the Koch brothers, which is considered an alt-right organization attempting to plant their seed in the Milwaukee Southside Latino community.

April 25, 2017

Milwaukee, WI - On Monday, some Latinos in the Milwaukee area were invited to a "Community Leaders Freedom Dinner" by Aldira Aldape, the Americans for Prosperity Foundation (APF) Outreach Director in Milwaukee. The dinner event at the Italian Community Center was co-sponsored by APF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates the LIBRE Initiative and the other sponsor was Bridge To WellBeing, according to the invite. The LIBRE Initiative by APF provided information to those attending, APF wants to provide tools for the Latino community to prosper and built economic empowerment and identifies itself as a non-partisan and non-profit grassroots organization. But, what APF doesn't want Latinos to know is that it is actually funded by the alt-right Koch brothers who oppose immigration reform amd advocate to repeal ACA (Obamacare).
In 2015, State Representative JoCasta Zamarripa (D-Milw) released a statement about LIBRE, "The LIBRE Initiative is an ultra-conservative organization funded by out of state billionaires Charles and David Koch that seeks to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, halt increases in the federal minimum wage, fund anti-immigrant Republican politicians, and support voter photo ID laws that aim to further disenfranchise Latino communities.
"As the representative of the largest Latino community in the great state of Wisconsin, I have been dedicated to growing the civic engagement of Latino Wisconsinites in my district and beyond. I am committed to making sure my constituents are made aware that the primary goal of this right-wing organization is to get them to vote against their best interests by voting for Republican candidates who have consistently blocked my efforts to pass pro-Latino, pro-immigrant bills like drivers cards for undocumented immigrants (AB 343) and even symbolic efforts like a bill that would honor national civil rights leader, Cesar Chavez (AB 437)." 
It seems that LIBRE is not welcome in the Latino community for its alt-right connection to the Koch brothers and their agenda to continue to disenfranchised the Hispanic community it wants to infiltrate to create division among Latinos similar to what Governor Scott Walker (R) told a major campaign supporter about divide and conquer when unions were actually targeted before ACT 10 was passed to eliminate contract bargaining for state employees.

Más De $1.3M Fue Las Pérdidas De Negocio Latinos En Wisconsin Durante Un Día Sin Latinos En Febrero

El cierre de más de 165 empresas Latinas en Milwaukee y alrededor del estado de Wisconsin el pasado 18 de Febrero arrojo al menos $1.3 millones en perdidas en un solo día para negocios Latinos. 

Por H. Nelson Goodson
Noticias de la Red Hispana EE.UU.
(Hispanic News Network U.S.A.)

21 de de abril del 2017

Milwaukee, WI - Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) ha confirmado que algunas empresas como El Rey los productos, lo que genera más de $59M en ventas de comestibles y productos decidieron cerrar de nuevo el 1ro de mayo para permitir a sus empleados a participar en la marcha del Día Sin Inmigrantes. El Cabrito restaurante en Milwaukee es otro negocio que se ha confirmado que se va a cerrar, así, de acuerdo con la página de la cuenta VDLF Facebook. VDLF no ha publicado una lista actual de los negocios latinos que se cerrarán hasta el momento, pero la lista está creciendo como lo hizo en febrero.
En febrero, más de 165 empresas latinas en el área de Milwaukee y estatal decidieron cerrar y perdieron más de $1,3 millones en ingresos en un solo día. Algunas empresas latinas que no cierran debido a mantener su negocio a flote se enfrentaron a un boicot por la propia comunidad a la que sirven.
Muchos propietarios de negocios latinos voluntariamente cerraron y tomaron una enorme pérdida de negocio por un día para apoyar el movimiento de VDLF para promover el cambio en la reforma de inmigración y otros asuntos que afectan a la comunidad latina inmigrante indocumentada. Mientras que otras empresas latinas no se quedaron con una opción, pero para cerrar o se enfrentan a un boicot por parte de la comunidad de apoyo a VDLF, de acuerdo con algunos propietarios de negocios.
Parece que en los últimos 11 años, las empresas latinas han perdido más de $14.5M en los ingresos estimados durante el día sin latinos y que no afecta la base económica cual dona fondos para campañas que apoyan a los políticos estatales y federales legisladores republicanos que son re-elegido o elegida/o con la agenda para oprimir a la población latina en Wisconsin hoy.
VDLF incluso ha creado un comité dueño del negocio denominado "Negocios en La Lucha" y los propietarios de negocios en el comité han decidido una vez más para cerrar sus negocios en esta ocasión. Al cerrar su negocio por un día en realidad les más efectos a los mismos con pérdidas de negocio y no a quienes están tratando de luchar contra ellos, que son las grandes corporaciones, los fabricantes y las tiendas comerciales como Walmart, Menards, Pepsi, productos Coors y la lista sigue que realmente ayuda el GOP (legisladores republicanos extremos) hoy y Trump.
Algunos podrían argumentar que las empresas latinas que deciden a cerrar durante el día sin inmigrantes en realidad toman la pérdida de negocio, mientras que las empresas que siguen apoyando a los republicanos siguen con éxito para oprimir. Latinos deben de gastar su dinero en tiendas y negocios latinos dónde los apoyan y les dan la bienvenida y no en empresas racistas donde usan el dinero del latino para apoyar los legisladores Republicanos para oprimir el mismo consumidor latino.
Los negocios latinos deben permanecer abiertos para generar el empoderamiento económico de reinvertir en la comunidad para oponerse y apoyar la lucha contra cualquier intento de oprimir al crecimiento de la comunidad latina, que los latinos y los negocios latinos son también los principales contribuyentes de impuestos y los consumidores en el estado de Wisconsin.
Los latinos aún no han captado la idea de que tienen una potenciación económica y si pueden aprender a manejar su poder económico, la reforma migratoria eventualmente se llevará a cabo. Los latinos deben gastar sus dólares en los negocios latinos y empresas que los apoyan y no deben gastar su dinero en lugares donde no son bienvenidos o sí apoyan el GOP y Trump.
VDLF volverá a dirigir una marcha de la comunidad desde la calle sur de la 5 y oeste de la calle Washington hasta la Corte del Condado de Milwaukee el lunes, 1ro de mayo de a partir del mediodía.

VDLF hasta en momento no ha criticado abiertamente a las organizaciones basadas en la comunidad latina y sin fines de lucro para que apoyen y cierren como lo hace con los negocios latinos.

Nota del editor:

Hispanic News Network U.S.A se  ha dado cuenta que las siguientes organizaciones latinas de base comunitaria y grupos sin fines de lucro no van a cerrar el 1ro de mayo en apoyo de la marcha del inmigrante patrocinada por Voces de la Frontera y ninguna de las organizaciones mencionadas han enviado un aviso de que van a cerrar para permitir sus empleados asistir a la marcha con los inmigrantes.

¿Por qué la mayoría de las organizaciones Latinas de base no lucrativo no cerrarán el 1 de mayo para apoyar la marcha del inmigrante y refugiados patrocinada por Voces de la Frontera?

Podría ser que la mayoría de estas organizaciones tienen afiliaciones republicanos que les impiden la participación.

Wisconsin Latino Businesses Faced Nearly $1.3M In Estimated Loss During "Día Sin Latinos" In February

In February, more than 165 Milwaukee and statewide Latino business owners decided to close during a Day without Latinos, Immigrants and Refugees, which resulted in more than $1.3M in business loss just in one day.

By H. Nelson Goodson
Hispanic News Network U.S.A.

April 21, 2017

Milwaukee, WI - Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) has confirmed that some businesses including El Rey Products, which generates more than $59M in grocery and product sales decided to close again for the May 1st Immigrant march to allow its employees to participate in the march. The local El Cabrito Restaurant is another business that has confirmed that it will close as well, according to the VDLF Facebook page account. VDLF hasn't released a current list of Latino businesses that will be closing so far, but the list is growing as it did in February.
In February, more than 165 Latino businesses in the Milwaukee and statewide area decided to close and lost more than $1.3M in revenue just in one day. Some Latino businesses who did not close due to keeping their business afloat were facing a boycott by the very community they served.
Many Latino business owners voluntarily close and take a huge loss of business for one day to support the VDLF movement to promote change in immigration reform and other issues affecting the Latino undocumented immigrant community. While other Latino businesses are not left with an option, but to close or face a boycott by the community supporting VDLF, according to some business owners.
It seems that in the last 11 years, Latino businesses have lost more than $14.5M in estimated revenue during the one Day without Latinos, which doesn't effect the very economic base that supports and finance political GOP state and federal legislators that are re-elected or elected with the agenda to oppress the Latino population in Wisconsin today.
VDLF has even created a business owner committee called "Negocios en La Lucha" and the business owners in the committee have decided once again to close their businesses this time around. By closing their business for one day actually effects them more in business loss than those they are trying to fight against, which is the big corporations, manufacturers and shopping stores like Walmart, Menard's, Pepsi, Coors products and the list goes on that actually support the GOP (extreme Republican legislators) today and Trump.
Some might argue that the Latino businesses who decide to close for the one Day without Immigrants actually take a hit in business loss while the businesses that continue to support the GOP welcome Latinos to spend their money at their stores so, it can be use to support those legislators working to oppress the very same Latino consumer.
Latino businesses should remain open for business to generate economic empowerment to reinvest back into the community to oppose and support the fight against any attempt to oppress the Latino community growth, which Latinos and Latino businesses are also major tax contributors and consumers in the state of Wisconsin.
Latinos have not yet grasp the idea that they have an economic empowerment and if they can learn how to manage their economic spending power, immigration reform will eventually take place. Latinos need to spend their hard eatned dollars at Latino businesses and businesses that support and welcomes them and shouldn't spend their money at places thay they are not welcome or do support the GOP and Trump.
VDLF will once again lead a community march from S. 5th St. and W. Washington St. to the Milwaukee County Courthouse on Monday, May 1st starting at noon.
VDLF has not openly advocated for Latino community based organizations and non-profits to close as Latino businesses.

Editors note:

Hispanic News Network U.S.A. has learned that the following Latino Community Based Organizations and non-profit groups will not close on May 1st in support of the Voces de la Frontera immigrant march and none have send out a notice that they will close to allow their employees to march with immigrants.

Why most Latino community base organizations will probably not close on May 1st to support the Voces de la Frontera Immigrant and refugee march?

Could it be that most of these organizations have Republican affiliations preventing them from participation.
