UW-Madison responds to reports of ICE activity on campus

MADISON (CBS 58) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison responded Saturday to reports of ICE activity on campus.

The University said social media postings started circulating Friday referencing reports of Immigration and Customs Enforcement activity on the UW-Madison campus.

The University believes those reports were likely sparked by routine activity of another government agency.

The University says that earlier this week, they provided a copy of an employee's I-9 form to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, with the employee’s consent, in response to a lawful authorization.  

"This is the only employee inquiry the university has received from Homeland Security this week. Such requests are not unusual and do not imply any unlawful behavior. The individual remains employed at UW–Madison," the University said in a press release.
