Renee Bauer, Executive Director of the Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice (ICWJ), is a member of the Dane County Board of Supervisors Immigration Task Force. The Task Force recently finished a report that asks the Sheriff’s office to end its current practice of contacting ICE during the booking process for cases involving processing of non-US citizen detainees. The report is being sent to the Board of Supervisors.
As part of ICWJ’s advocacy efforts to bring justice to all workers, Renee is pleased to report this recent victory. Although neither the Task Force nor the Dane County Board of Supervisors can mandate policies for the Sheriff to follow, the ICWJ is hopeful that these recommendations will sway the Sheriff to make a change in his booking policies.
