Where do you think all of the courageous people have gone? It seems nowadays that no one is willing to take a stand for their morals or their values. It seems that we Americans, who have traditionally fought for the rights of others, are just quietly sitting back allowing others to be persecuted and doing nothing to help them in return.
Two true proud Americans who are not guilty of this vile complacency are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. These two men are very passionate proponents of immigration rights. Living in the state of Arizona they have seen firsthand the horribly inhumane acts the Americans are committing toward those of the Hispanic race.

In order to turn around the world view and mindset of the average American, they publish magazines and journals. These magazines and journals are published through the Village Voice Media.
In these various publications, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin often focus on the crimes being committed by Americans toward Hispanics and also describe the plight that the Latino community faces which drive them to enter this country illegally. They hope that the average American will gain compassion for what these people are going through.
By constantly advocating for immigration rights, they have stood directly against a man known as America’s toughest Sheriff. This tough Sheriff is named Joseph Arpaio. Working for the Maricopa County Police Department, Arpaio has been able to systematically persecute Hispanics that are unlucky enough to come in to his sights.
One example of Joseph Arpaio doing despicable things to Hispanics concerns a woman who had a miscarriage due to Sheriff Joe Arpaio denying her her rights. To keep a long story short, a pregnant woman complained to security guards that she was not feeling her baby move.
She asked to see a physician but was denied that request. She had a miscarriage that could have been stopped had she seen a physician. To make it even worse, this poor mother was not even allowed to attend the celebration of life for her unborn child.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken Sheriff Joe Arpaio to task over these kind of crimes.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio however, does not want his “good name” to be slandered. So he convinced several corrupt judges to sign he illegal warrant the allowed him to go into their homes and gather all evidence against him to be destroyed.

When Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin protested that this was going against their constitutional right of free speech, Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested them for obstructing justice
All of these acts of Sheriff Joe Arpaio toward Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were you legal. This illegal action caused Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin to inherit $3.75 million from the United States government.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would expand their focus to now include fighting on behalf of the first amendment. They see the first amendment is being eroded right in front of our eyes but Americans are blind to this.
