Local groups react after judge blocks Trump's sanctuary city order

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) --- President Trump is firing back after a judge blocks part of his executive order on sanctuary cities.

The president is vowing to take this to the supreme court. but for some local groups, they're breathing a temporary sigh of relief.

Voces De La Frontera has spent the past few months fighting for immigration rights at both the local and state level.

The group also recently held a state-wide community forum going over worst case scenarios if someone were to be deported.

"To even have to think that way, if anyone thinks if I had to do that, that's a pretty harsh reality. Again that threat is real, but for now our message is let's get ahead of this situation, let's not get there, let's not let this fire grow," said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, executive director of Voces De La Frontera.

Neumann-Ortiz says she was recently asked by a friend to take temporary custody of her children, in the event that both parents are deported.
