For a second straight year, the "Midwest National Security Conference" has been scheduled for Waukesha County, on May 9 and 10. The group is not about national security; it is an anti-Muslim hate group. The group purports to expose the threat of "Marxists and Islamists" in our midst - and holds that Islam itself is a threat to our nation.
The group misrepresented itself to the Waukesha Expo Center when making its reservation. It claimed to be some sort of law enforcement training, rather than an anti-Muslim hate group training. They similarly tried to hide their true intentions and identity in 2018 when they tried to schedule their event at the Country Springs Hotel.
Last year, many of us contacted the Country Springs to let them know that Wisconsin is not a place for hate groups. When the Country Springs discovered they had been deceived, they cancelled the event.
Please call the Waukesha Expo Center to tell them to do the same. Their number is 262-548-7200.
Wisconsin is not the place for hate training.
