NOW: Fire and Police Commission approves non-collaboration policy with ICE

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Cheers erupted at City Hall after the Fire and Police Commission voted to approve a non-collaboration policy with ICE on Wednesday, Dec. 18. 

It requires a federal judge to sign off on a judicial warrant before police can help immigration enforcement. 

It comes after Milwaukee police officers helped ICE arrest an illegal immigrant in September. Jose De La Cruz's daughter spoke to the commission.

"Seeing him away like that and not saying goodbye to my dad, I never want this to happen to other families," she said. 

The policy change passed with unanimous support from the FPC. It goes into effect Thursday, Dec. 19.
