Rumors Panic Many Latinos [in Madison], Scared by Rumors of Immigration Sweep
Madison.com ^ | April 24, 2006 | Pat Schneider & Steven Elbow

Posted on 04/24/2006 2:21:10 PM PDT by Diana in Wisconsin

Rumors of a federal crackdown on illegal immigrants in the Madison area spun out of control Sunday, causing fear and panic in the Hispanic community and keeping many children out of school today.

Mayor Dave Cieslewicz said that Mario Mendoza, a Spanish-speaking aide, was preparing a statement for Spanish-language media.

"There's no truth to the rumors," Cieslewicz said. "People should just go about their normal daily lives."

"We don't know how it started, but it ran like wildfire in the Latino community," said Luis Montoto, program director for La Movida radio, the area's only Spanish-language station.

School officials reported absences this morning as parents called schools to report they were keeping children home because of the accounts they had heard of Latinos being arrested.

Absenteeism for Latino students was at nearly 50 percent at Cherokee Middle School, 41 percent at Sennett Middle School, and 33 percent at Leopold Elementary School, spokesman Ken Syke said after making a spot check at the request of The Capital Times.

Absentee rates district-wide are ordinarily less than 10 percent.

Syke said the school district would be contacting parents of absent Latino students today to tell them that the rumors of raids were not true.

At one workplace employing many Latinos, a spokesman for Springs Window Fashions in Middleton said that perhaps a dozen Latino workers did not report today "as a result of the message out there."

Craig Hanson, the spokesman, said absences in any area were not heavy enough to cause production problems. The absences would be handled by the normal attendance guidelines, he said.

Pepe Villegas, a waiter at La Hacienda restaurant, said that after workers called Sunday to say they were afraid to come to work, owner David Herrera held a special meeting early this morning to reassure everyone that the stories of arrests were false.

"Only two workers did not come in," he said. "We are open."

At the radio station, Montoto said many first-shift workers, mostly with landscaping, factories and construction companies, would likely stay home today after hearing horror stories of vans rounding up illegals at local businesses, at highway stops and homes.

"It was all completely false," he said.

Montoto began dispelling the rumors when he went on the air this morning for his regularly scheduled shift at 6 a.m., fielding calls from workers scared to go to work.

"Most, I think, first-shift employees that have a lot of Latinos will see a lot of employees not show up today," Montoto said. "I think second and third shift will be all right. People are really upset right now."

Hundreds of calls: Monoto said he was busy Sunday evening scrambling to at least a half-dozen businesses, including Wal-Mart and Woodman's East, Copps on Park Street, La Hacienda restaurant and other Hispanic businesses, after receiving reports of vans rounding up employees. He was skeptical but felt he had to see for himself before he went on the air today.

"I got at least 200 calls last night on my cell phone," he said today.

Organizers of a April 10 demonstration against immigration policy changes, and a rally planned for May 1, are calling the message that spread through the community a "hoax."

"We don't know what happened," demonstration organizer Alex Gillis said today.

He and other organizers and community leaders drove around the city Sunday evening visiting the locations of reported raids and were not able to confirm that any immigration officers had been active in the city.

Still, the telephone calls with accounts of arrests and questions about what to do.

"We had 200 or 300 calls, it didn't stop until midnight," Gillis said. "It's been crazy."

He said that one Latino couple the group spoke to on the east side on Sunday evening swore they saw arrests with their own eyes, but their story could not be confirmed.

State and local police today said they knew nothing of a crackdown on illegal immigrants.

"We were surprised to hear it," said Madison police spokesman Mike Hanson. "We were not participating in anything."

Officials with regional Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in Milwaukee and Chicago did not return phone calls. The service is now a bureau of the Department of Homeland Security.

"It spread like wildfire throughout the community," said Victor Arellano.

Arellano said his phone was ringing until the early morning hours today, but he had been unable to confirm any activity in the city by immigration officials.

Staying home: "When a community is on pins and needles, any rumor gains momentum on its own and runs wild," said Peter Munoz, executive director of Centro Hispano. He said today he hoped employers would not punish those who missed work."

Alfonso Zepeda Capistran said that news reports of stepped-up arrests by the Department of Homeland Security in areas of the country near the Mexican border may have ignited fears here.

"That may have caused people to panic," Capistran said. "Now a lot of people seemed to have stayed home from work and that will cause more havoc."

Snowball effect: Gillis wondered if there are people within the Latino community opposed to recent immigrations rights that might be working to discredit the movement by scaring people from reporting for work and testing the willingness of employers to accommodate absences for demonstrations.

Montoto said he thought several factors fed the panic.

First, he said, the rumors actually started about last Wednesday, when the federal government announced the arrests of nearly 1,200 illegal immigrants in 26 states at plants operated by IFCO Systems, a major producer of wooden pallets and crates.

"They have nothing to do with Wisconsin, but people got scared," he said.

A day later, he said, Madison area police officials announced a crackdown on unsafe and inattentive driving the Beltline, and La Movida aired numerous warnings about police on the highway.

"People might have gotten confused and thought it was about immigration," he said.

Having some knowledge about how the federal government conducts its immigration enforcement, he said he began telling people not to believe the rumors last week.

"We didn't think it would snowball like it did yesterday," he said.

He added that he thinks the storm has blown over.

"I don't think it's going to happen again," he said. "Honestly, we've learned our lesson."

Other cities might like to try this, just to get a feel for how many illegals they have living in their communities. This little exercise probably accomplished more via "rumor" than will be accomplished with the Hispanic boycott coming up on May 1st. ;)

It's just so hard to believe this could happen first in 'The Worker's Paradise' that is Madistan, WI. *Smirk* Ithica, NY should give it a try.

Good, here is a quick list of the felonies most of them have already committed.

42 US Code 408
Whoever
(B) with intent to deceive, falsely represents a number to be the social security account number assigned by the Commissioner of Social Security to him or to another person, when in fact such number is not the social security account number assigned by the Commissioner of Social Security to him or to such other person; or
(C) knowingly alters a social security card issued by the Commissioner of Social Security, buys or sells a card that is, or purports to be, a card so issued, counterfeits a social security card, or possesses a social security card or counterfeit social security card with intent to sell or alter it; or
shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction thereof shall be fined under title 18 or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both.

26 US Code 7201 Any person who willfully attempts in any manner to evade or defeat any tax imposed by this title or the payment thereof shall, in addition to other penalties provided by law, be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than $100,000 ($500,000 in the case of a corporation), or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution.

50 US Code 451 (f) Penalties Any person, or any officer of any person as defined in this section, who willfully fails or refuses to carry out any duty imposed upon him by subsection (b) of this section shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than three years, or by a fine of not more than $50,000, or by both such imprisonment and fine.

Even if you don't count the little 'sneaking across the border' bit they are still guilty of Social Security fraud, federal tax evasion, and failure to register for Selective Service. Any US citizen could be imprisoned for 13 years for those crimes. Must be nice to get free felonies from the government.

Well I have it on good authority that the May 1 rallies are going to be targeted by Customs and Immigration and massive, truly massive numbers of arrests will be made. Border Patrol and Immigration agents from the Canadian bordere are going to be moved down to Texas and Arizona to take part in the massive crackdown of illegals marching on May 1. I hope the illegals do not hear about this.

If a rumor can so panic them, then actual enforcement of our laws and a mere 3-5% arrest rate of illegals should send quite a few of the remaining illegals scrambling for home.

As soon as it's on-line, I'll add the Madison Police Department Press Release...you won't believe it. *Rolleyes*

The Mayor has already been all over TV and radio telling illegals that they have nothing to worry about by living here.

If they can calculate the number of kids that didn't show up to school today, shouldn't we taxpayers be given that information? I mean, we're footing the bill through our tax dollars to educate those Anchor Babies.

Madison is a Sanctuary City. We can't sustain this. I'm curious as to whether there are illegals employed by the City of Madison, proper.

I thought it was "imigra?" Or is that "mee-gra?"

In any event... a fun little excercise. Do it a few times, get the illegals jumpy... and record who doesn't show up for work/school, and there's your list. Then after you've done the false alarm thing 3-5 times... do it for real, and sweep up a whole bunch of 'em.

Shows how many illegal immigrants are sucking from our tax payers' financed schools teat. This is why so many Americans will go to great lengths no matter what the cost even for the poor to send their kids to private schools (above and beyond the normal lib. brainwashing that goes on there).

Absolutely right. This notion that "there's no way we can deport 12 million illegals, so we might as well legalize them all" is a false argument. If we enforced our laws and denied them benefits, they'd deport themselves.

I am surprised that it got this reaction. When was the last time immigration did sweeps? 50's? 60's? Of course, the schools lose federal money based on attendance. Hey, if we funded American kids and those legally in America, then the tax-pie slices wouldn't have to be so small.

"Lawbreakers in Madison needn't fear anything, ever."

I dunno about that. The police blotter shows that they do ticket people for lighting up a doobie in public from time to time. $125.00 fine. Now, light up a legal, taxed and revenue producing cigarette in a no-smoking area? $150.00!

That tells me that Springs Window Fashions has at least 12 illegal alien workers and should be turned in. This article supports it.

My husband used to work there, in IT. He quit for many reasons and one of them was the number of non-English speaking people that worked there. And when classes in Spanish were offered to the "Gringos" for free, that was pretty much the last straw for him.

Twelve people not showing up is the TIP of the iceburg at that place; they do have a shop in Renosa, MX and a few Texas border towns as well as South Carolina and Las Vegas and a few other places around the US that I can't remember. DH traveled for them a lot, setting up computer stuff in all of their US & Mexico locations.

Look at the tags on your sheets, pillowcases, bath towels and curtains. I'll bet many of us have their products in our homes.

Good news, indeed. There was a Border Patrol sweep here in the San Diego area a while back. The rumors of a crackdown spread like wildfire, prompting Asa Hutchinson to call off the Border Patrol, as to not upset too many ilegal aliens.

Rumors 'spread like wildfire' because they are credible. Illegal immigrants know they are illegal and are legally subject to being deported at any time.

"Absenteeism for Latino students was at nearly 50 percent at Cherokee Middle School, 41 percent at Sennett Middle School, and 33 percent at Leopold Elementary School,"

This shows that these schools districts are over budgeted by 50, 41, and 33 % respectively. The best way to put a stop to this social drain is to quit funding it in the first place.

When these school board cry about lack of funding, put your feet down tell these touchy feely teacher's union controlled school boards to quit teaching illegal immigrants for free, at the expense of our children's educations. We pay to sent American children to school, not the children from every other nation.

Fight back with the one tool everyone seems to understand- the dollar.

When was the last time immigration did sweeps?

I don't know if this qualifies as an "immigration sweep"...but here
in Columbia, MO, my brother said that the local builders have told him
that they get immigrations officers at the worksites (unannounced)
2-3 times a year.

Might account for the VERY FEW Hispanics/Latinos in this area; they probably
move onto other places like Socialist Haven St. Louis.

Funny, we have had a decent building boom here...with Americans doing
jobs that Dubya says they won't do!

Hate to burst the bubble, but the fact that absenteeism was up for Latino's by X% does not mean that absenteeism was up by X% of the total. No doubt there are a lot of illegals everywhere.

For example: If there are 30 kids in the class. 6 are Latino. That is 20%. If 3 don't show up, that is 50% absenteeism for Latino students. Total absenteeism is 10%. You also do not know which are legal and which are not.

"You also do not know which are legal and which are not."

I'll take a guess and say all of them, and cut the budget anyways. Teachers can take a pay cut, or better yet, teach kids reading, writing, and arithmetic instead of gay sexual experiences, and ensure every child enrolled is in America legally. Better yet, get rid of the public school system, school taxes completely.
