MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Justice says Milwaukee County is in compliance with immigration law and won't lose federal grants.
Milwaukee County was among 10 jurisdictions the DOJ warned could lose funding unless they proved they shared the immigration status of people they detained with federal authorities. The department said in a letter Wednesday the county is in compliance because the sheriff's office is sharing information, despite two county resolutions against doing so in most cases.
