As hundreds of protesters look on, the Sheboygan City Council rejects a proposal to detain illegal immigrants caught without proof of citizenship. The vote was 14-1 against the resolution — which called on Sheboygan Police to “follow federal law” and hold immigration suspects until they can be transferred to Homeland Security officers. Job Houseye wrote the measure and cast the only yes vote. He said it merely called for police to follow the laws on the books, and to send a message that Sheboygan won’t be a sanctuary city. But other council members said they were not interested in “threatening” people by rounding them up — and Council president Mary Lynne Donohue the resolution would have dragged the city into “partisan politics.” The Milwaukee immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera held a rally outside the Sheboygan City Hall before the meeting.
