The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund is a fund that came on the heels of the arrests in 2007 of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. It is designed to both educate, and help finance the retrieval of funds of those imprisoned after deportation. The fund also strives to end death in the desert stemming from these actions. It is amazing what has happened to these people that should be applauded, instead of indicted. Here are some details on what has happened.
To date, 3.7 million dollars has been raised to help this cause, but far more is needed. It helps to pay legal fees, and fund the project. It all started when Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin sued the county, after asserting their legal rights to defend and uphold their first amendment rights.
When the money is in place, legal assistance can be given to those that find themselves battling an uphill war, that seems to have no common sense to it. That’s where laws and fighting back in court comes in. When the right financial backing is in place, then fighting back becomes a simple thing that can right the wrongs done to these two, and countless others.

Asserting one’s rights has been a long time right of private Americans. Those who uphold their rights used to be seen as revolutionaries and brave defenders of the USA. Today, they are branded as troublemakers and more often than not, suspected of being terrorists. Others are simply added to a watch list to “catch” in the act of terrorist activities. This goes against the very foundation of this country. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are heroes, to which, they should be applauded, not indicted, as they were in 2007.
Unless and until we stand up to help these heroes, the United States will continue to deteriorate and become a country much like the very country our founding fathers left. — England. The United States was created on precepts that strove to avoid these very things, that are now happening in the news today. People have rights here, and that should be defended, instead of prosecuted.
It is truly sad to see the constant deterioration of the system. Based now more on greed and a “mine” mentality than rights, it is up to those people that stand for the nation’s original beliefs of the founding fathers to protect the freedom and liberty of Americans. This includes new ones. Immigrants looking for a better life. It’s what the United States was founded on, and should be what it is about still, to this day.
When the right support is in place, like this fund, the country can get back on track. Get rid of leadership that is based on greed and liable statements that work to remove the rights that this country, and precepts thereof, once thrived.
