Fighting for immigrants has been the backbone of America since its founding. Unfortunately, it seems many have forgotten that fact. Two people who have not forgotten that fact are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund in order to help other nonprofits the able to proclaim the message that immigrants also deserve rights, and they also deserve to have a life in the Promised Land. The reason Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund is because of a settlement they won from the Maricopa County.

This settlement came after Sheriff Joe Arpaio, from, and representing, the Maricopa County performed several illegal things to silence them. Why was Sheriff Joe Arpaio trying to silence them you ask? Let me explain.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin discovered some very troubling things about the Maricopa County Sheriff. They found evidence he was encouraging his police force to specifically target Latinos and bring them to jail in order to illegally detain them, and possibly deport them.

He would hold them in rotten jail cells that were so unsanitary that some died just because they’re exposed to those conditions.

When Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin discovered this they took to the media and they revealed just how awful this man was.

However, Sheriff Joe Arpaio would show him just how disgusting of a man he was when he was illegally break into Michael Lacy’s home and also Jim Larkin’s home, in order to illegally arrest them. While being there, he demanded to see all of their documents that showed his crimes so that he could destroy them and not be punished.

However, in the story, the good guys win. After Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were illegally arrested, the nation cried out against this act and because it had exposure across the country, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to sue the Maricopa County and win.

It was the 3.75 million dollars they won from that lawsuit that they were able to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund.
