Milwaukee, WI (October 1, 2019) Today, Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell R. Lucas released the following statement in response to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Chicago Field Office’s attempt to misrepresent the facts surrounding the arrest of Mr. Jose De La Cruz Espinoza. Sheriff Lucas said the following:

“By placing the responsibility for the arrest of Mr. De La Cruz Espinoza on the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, ICE has engaged in an egregious attempt to misrepresent facts. This marks yet another attempt on ICE’s part to point a finger at local law enforcement for not performing ICE’s own duties, and to take attention away from ICE’s horrific act of terrorizing a family, thereby having a chilling effect on our community.”
