The President Announces DACA Will End
The president has announced that DACA will end within six months. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma barrelling towards the coast of Florida, Americans seem to be getting hit from all sides. The political waters of the United States seem to be as muddy as the streets of Houston.
Will we deport young people who only know this country as home? What about those who don’t even speak anything other than English? Where will they go? Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/
America has created a generation of young people who now, effectively, have no country. This is unacceptable if you have a soul. We reached out to them, we offered them hope, and now we discarding them with no mercy.
Organizations like Human Rights Watch help to ensure that tragedies do not befall those who are underprivileged and challenged based on income, social, geopolitical, ethnic or even religious grounds. People can’t help where they are born.
People also cannot help what their skin color is or where their parents bring them as children. Children are just never to be blamed for the ‘sins of the father’ and many groups around the world exist to ensure that things like this don’t happen.
Yet, here we are. It is happening. Right now, it is important to find out what organizations are fighting discrimination here, within the borders of our own country. If we stand with the policies that always have made America great, because it has never not been great, then we should stand with our immigrants.
These people are not illegal. They were told to stay, go to school, get jobs, become taxpayers and legally seek the American dream. Suddenly, the new administration has turned its back on them. If this doesn’t feel right to you, then look for these organizations and support them.
One such organization is Lacey and Larkin and their Frontera Fund. This is the law firm of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, that took to court and won a settlement of $3.75M because of the unlawful actions of the former sheriff, Joe Arpaio.
In that case, two reporters were removed from their homes in the middle of the night. These reporters were facing retaliation from the sheriff for information that their notes and information were part of the grand jury case against the sheriff.
This law firm is now devoting these funds to assisting in the fight for civil, human and migrant rights. They will support freedom of speech and anyone exercising their civic duties within the state of Arizona.
There is no doubt that this law firm will have plenty of ways to show their support for the state of Arizona at this point. Anyone who is looking for organizations to follow or support, can look at the law firms’ website and read more.
Americans should be interested in all that is going on right now. This will touch the lives of all Americans for the future of our country.
