We must respect those who go to stand and fight evil. It is because of men like that, this world is becoming better and more righteous.
If more men would do this, our Earth may have a chance of becoming the Utopia that so many people believe it can be. If this great Utopia is to come, then our hearts must change. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have fought against a certain evil in this world, and I am grateful for them.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have used their organisation, the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund, to help other people who believe the immigrants have rights, that we all have the right to free speech, and that if you are here in America you have the right to pursue a dream, to start their own nonprofits and continue spreading this wonderful message.

Unfortunately, Sheriff Joe Arpaio use the police force more like a personal military than as keepers of the law. He did this by ordering them to specifically target Latinos, put them in inhumane jail cells, and even if they were on the verge of death, to leave them there.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin made all of this known, and when that happened, Sheriff Joe Arpaio try to find ways to make them go silent.
He tried to bully them by illegally forcing himself into their homes, and threatening them with arrest. He did this in order to intimidate them so they would delete the evidence against him. When his intimidation failed, he took them to jail.
The national outcry was great. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were soon released. What then happened was the start of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund. They would go to sue the Maricopa County for 3.75 million dollars and use that money to help immigrants get rights.
