MILWAUKEE -- Thousands of undocumented immigrants are anxiously awaiting the decisions our next president will make on immigration reform.

The Immigration Policy Institute estimates more than 70,000 undocumented immigrants live in Wisconsin -- 25,000 of which live in Milwaukee County.

Milwaukee immigration attorney Maria Ryan tells TODAY'S TMJ4 she's gotten an influx of calls ever since President-elect Donald Trump was announced as our next President of the United States.

Ryan is studying what President-elect Donald Trump can immediately change on day one. That includes executive orders.

"I'm very, very worried about so many of my clients who don't have any options," Ryan said.

TODAY'S TMJ4 reached out to leaders at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and county sheriff. They both declined to comment. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was not in the office Monday to comment.
