Some people migrate from their countries at a very tender age. They end up spending their time as immigrants. They utilize their resources and talents building the society they currently live. Such individuals are technically the citizens of this states. The only thing that they lack are the legal documents.
The authorities judge you according to law. When found guilty you have to be punished according to the law. In the case of immigrants, they are deported. The DACA Foundation was formed in an attempt to stop this practice.
The DACA Foundation believes that the immigrants have been assets of the society. Paying them by deporting them is a cruel act. The organization, therefore, gives the members an extension of two years. The members have the liberty of how they want the time utilized.
Some members use the time to process the required documents to become the citizens of the USA. Other members utilize their time to complete their education.
In the cases where the tie ends before the member accomplishes their mission, a renewal membership is allowed.
Recently, the DACA Foundation is experiencing some complexities. This after the Texas Attorney General accused the firm of not having full documents that the law demands. As a result, he filed a report ordering the Trump government to close down the institution. Nine other officials have seconded the AG. The Trump government is yet to decide the fate of the organization.
The members’ worry has intensified after Kelly made his announcement. He mentioned that the firm was still unstable despite the efforts the staff was put to cope with the situation. He, therefore, saw the need to alert the members on the situation.

Although the firm is not to be close down suddenly, the current situation has brought about various inconveniences. This is because the organization is currently banned from accepting new memberships and renewing expired memberships.
The Arizona settlers who were first beneficiaries of the scheme are very agitated. They have openly declared the Texas AG together with the nine officials as ungrateful and greedy. They explain that the beneficiaries of DACA are an asset to the nation.
This is because those who complete their education become the intellectual property of the state. Those who settle down generate revenue to the government. This is because when they settle down, they use the money that they get to pay for car and house mortgages in an effort of settling down.
The DACA members are however hopeful that the situation will end permanently. This is after the Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Frontera Fund decided to intervene on the case. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been in the forefront of fighting for immigrant rights.
The DACA members are confident that their issue will be another legal fight that will count among the successes.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin acquired the money they got from the case of Sheriff Joe to start the Frontera Fund. They support humanitarian groups that share a common goal with them. They have promised the DACA members that they are going to save their organization.
In late 2007 Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s notorious Selective Enforcement Unit illegal arrested Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin from their homes in Arizona. Lacey and Larkin, executives of Village Voice Media which publishes the Phoenix New Times had been writing and reporting on the many violations and abuse of power by Sheriff Arpaio relating to targeting the Hispanic community and racially profiling citizens.
Before the executives arrest, Arpaio issued a grand jury subpoena for information on the Phoenix New Times writers, editors and readers. Once Lacey and Larkin learned of Arpaio’s doings, they published a story exposing Arapio’s violation of our First Amendment which then led to Laceys and Larkins unlawful arrest. Within 24 hours of their detainment both Lacey and Larkin were released after nationwide public outcry.
After Lacey’s and Larkin’s wrongful arrest by Arpaio, Maricopa County paid $3.75 million settlement to Lacey and Larkin in 2013. With the settlement and hope to benefit the Hispanic community, Lacey and Larkin founded the Frontera Fund which distributes funds to numerous Laitin-American immigrant non-profit groups around Arizona.
As well as founding the Frontera Fund, Lacey and Larkin used their background in journalism to establish Front Page Confidential, a place dedicated to all matters relating to our First Amendment. Front Page Confidential publishes current events and news of threats to our freedom of speech and freedom of press.
