U. Wisconsin groups demand abolition of ICE, national borders

Various University of Wisconsin student groups assembled an “emergency rally” on Tuesday to protest the Trump administration’s actions against the so-called migrant “caravan” which included demands to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement and even our national borders.

The rally’s participants, which featured the Young Democratic Socialists of America and the International Socialist Organization-Madison (surprise!), said the use of tear gas against the migrants by border patrol officials was “unacceptable.”

“The nature of this attack shows the utterly callous disregard for the lives and wellbeing of people of color from Latin America,” [Socialists Alternative’s Nick] Puetz told The Badger Herald.

The student paper Daily Cardinal’s article on the protest reads less like a report and more like sympathetic short story. Authors Lauren Souza and Robyn Cawley begin their piece with “Empowered voices and heavy hearts carried on the chant, ‘no one is illegal, refugees are people’” … and that’s merely the beginning:

“On the heels of another vicious migrant attack in Tijuana …”

“Plumes of heated breaths from about 50 protesters linked messages of immigrant supporters …”

“… the sound of stomping feet and echoed chants filled the heart of Madison.”
