From Sept. 21-24, ICE deportation officers arrested 83 immigrants throughout Wisconsin, and 20 of those were residents of the Dane County area. “Today is a very special opportunity for us to learn about parts of our community that are unseen,” said Armando Ibarra, director of the Chican@ and Latin@ Studies program at UW-Madison. “This is a place of learning and a place of respect.”
