"Disgraceful:" Pro-immigrant group reacts to Sheriff Clarke's DHS announcement

Who is Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke

Notorious Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke gets on an elevator after arriving at Trump Tower, Nov. 28, 2016, in NY.

Clarke announced Wednesday that he intends to resign in June to take a job with the Department of Homeland Security as a liaison to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.

Sheriff Clarke defended the expenditures as necessary for the continued improvement of the department.

On the 2015 trip, Clarke took a helicopter tour of the country, tweeting photos captioned: "Israel's border wall at the West Bank..."

"Sheriff Clarke, facing warranted scrutiny for the deaths of four people in his jail since last April, spent most of the past year traveling the country for paid speeches and hopping in front of cable news cameras to audition for a job in the Trump administration".

Since the inauguration, the sheriff has drawn protests in Milwaukee for taking steps to allow corrections officers to conduct immigration enforcement in his jails. Mother Jones reported that a lawsuit filed against the sheriff's office by the Thomas family claims that several inmates heard the man beg for water for 10 days leading up to his death.

In explaining the appointment process, Walker's office did not offer congratulations or any reaction to Clarke's news.

In August of previous year, he responded to a fatal police shooting in Milwaukee by saying impoverished communities of color were responsible for the victim's death. "Would you agree that marijuana possession is not the scourge of the black community, and does not lead to violent crime the same way that meth, crack cocaine or heroin do?"

"The law of the jungle replaced the rule of law in Milwaukee ... over an armed career criminal suspect who confronted police".

"The actions were the manifestation of a population with no hope, no stake in the American dream that could provide advancement and goal and pride of self".

When a Wisconsin sheriff leaves office midway through his or her term, the governor typically appoints a successor who would fill out the rest of the term and potentially run for election at the end of it, he said. The suburbs, where he serves, is more heavily white than the city of Milwaukee, which has its own police force. Some have wished Clarke well, while others have been critical of the decision. Despite the fact that he is a registered Democrat, Sheriff David Clarke has been vocal in his criticism of traditionally liberal issues, including abortion, the Black Lives Matter movement, civil rights, and gun control.

In another he's seen standing up to notoriously biased Don Lemon to the point that Lemon tells his crew to cut the feed and go to commercial.
