POTUS Opposition Resolution 16-738 is Divisive and Wasteful
"This measure seeks to make Milwaukee County an official sanctuary for illegal immigrants and embraces the Black Lives Matter anti-cop movement..."
(MILWAUKEE, WI) – On Tuesday, Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander issued the following statement regarding a Milwaukee County resolution aimed at bucking anything that comes from the new President and White House administration:
“This everything-but-the-kitchen-sink opposition measure is divisive, wasteful nonsense. Under the false banner of valuing all people, it carelessly drives a wedge against anyone willing to give the new President an opportunity to help our nation and further polarizes our political climate.
This measure seeks to make Milwaukee County an official sanctuary for illegal immigrants and embraces the Black Lives Matter anti-cop movement in a partisan way that seems like payback – perhaps against leaders like Milwaukee’s Sheriff Clarke, a nationally renowned black law enforcement leader who dared to help Donald Trump be elected President.
As local elected officials, our focus needs to be on the residents of Milwaukee County who are pleading for help staying safe in a metro area riddled with shootings, car thefts, sex trafficking, and a heroin epidemic. Throwing a fit for political pleasure and refusing to even try developing an intergovernmental relationship between our great County and the new White House administration is juvenile, irresponsible, and will ultimately damage us far more than it could ever repair us.”
