Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two of the most active individuals in the United States who are working together to help protect the migrants and their rights.
They have been working together since the beginning to extend assistance especially to those who were the most vulnerable. One of the most recent issues which have raised their eyebrows is the one which involved Joe Arpaio and President Donald Trump.
Joe Arpaio was the former sheriff of Maricopa County who was jailed because of contempt, but the president later on pardoned him. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are appealing to the president to reverse his decision because of the grave violations that Joe Arpaio did against the migrants.
Some of the horrific violations of Joe Arpaio were shared online, and it went viral. According to some people, he was notorious for persecuting the migrants, especially those who are undocumented.
There were reports about a secret tent city that was built having the purpose of detaining the migrants who will be deported and exposing them to harsh conditions.
Many people have died under the harsh leadership of Joe Arpaio, but the government is taking a blind eye against his actions. He has been accused of racial profiling and discrimination, but it seems like the government does not care about the complaints that they receive regarding the toughest sheriff in America.

Joe Arpaio was jailed because of contempt after he ignored the warnings of the county attorney office.
After his arrest, he warned everyone who has rejoiced his detainment that he will soon make it out if Donald Trump would end up becoming the president of the United States.
When Donald Trump won, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin feared that he would be releasing Joe Arpaio from the prison. What they feared the most came true, and he was pardoned recently. According to the activists, they are also victims of the atrocities committed by Joe Arpaio, and they would want him to rot inside the jail instead.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested by the men of Joe Arpaio in 2007, and they were brought before the court because of the accusation that they have leaked confidential information and posted it online. The two denied the accusation, but their trial went on.
The public was surprised regarding the development of the case, and they have asked for the immediate release of the two. The judge found out that the case filed against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin has weak evidence, and they were released.
Their lawyer suggested that they file a counter lawsuit against the county, and after the hearing of the case they filed, they were awarded $3.75 million which soon became a private fund known as Frontera Fund.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin continue the crusade against Joe Arpaio. They wanted to let the Americans know about his actions, and why he is never fit to run for any government office. Joe Arpaio expressed his interest in running for the Senate.
