Wisconsin Assembly Passes Bill Allowing DACA Illegals in Law Enforcement

(1/1)

Free Vulcan:


The Wisconsin State Assembly has passed legislation allowing illegal-alien recipients of the unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to become law-enforcement officers in the state.

Last Wednesday, the Assembly voted to pass Assembly Bill 51 (A.B. 51). The vote was nearly unanimous, with only four representatives ā€” Ty Bodden (R-Hilbert), Joy Goeben (R-Hobart), Angie Sapik (R-Lake Nebagamon), and Shae Sortwell (R-Two Rivers) ā€” voting ā€œNo.ā€ A.B. 51 will now be considered by the state Senate, which must also pass the bill before sending it to Governor Tony Evers. A companion bill, Senate Bill 78 (S.B. 78), has also been introduced in the Senate.

Under current state law, only U.S. citizens may become police officers and deputy sheriffs. However, if enacted, A.B. 51 and S.B. 78 would create a loophole allowing DACA recipients to become law-enforcement officers. The bills would also allow DACA recipients to participate in law-enforcement training programs.
